Tips for Passing the Exam

 

📘  Get started as soon as we send your course materials.

We will send you all of your course materials and access to our online learning platform before your course begins.  That way you can get going watching videos as well as printing your notes slides and reading the course textbook.
 

👋  Ask questions in class. 

If a topic is unclear, don't hesitate to speak up in class. This is your time to benefit from group discussion and your teacher's experiences.  Our classes are meant to be interactive.  Use the chat.  Unmute and speak up.  Have FUN!
 

🤔  Don't wait to start studying! 

This course covers a lot of material - too much to digest over night or even a few days or a couple of weeks. Review every day the material covered in class.  Schedule regular studying for yourself.  Use the study group virtual rooms that we provide to study with your classmates.
 

🖥  Review with online lectures. 

Every minute of every topic is already on video for you and provided in our interactive online learning system.  If you miss a class or need extra review, it's all right there!  If you're curious in advance, you can check out some of your pre-licensing lectures which are available on YouTube
 

🧐  Visit our friends at Learn, Test, Pass for test prep. 

1200 test questions prepared by the experts.  What more could you ask to see if you're ready?  The folks at Learn, Test, Pass can help
