Why doesn't my class include practice tests?

An important part of any successful test preparation program is taking practice tests. Why then don't we take practice tests during class?

Because our experience has shown that students perform better when every minute of class time is spent covering new topics. Practice tests are important, but they will be assigned to be taken outside of classroom time. This allows your instructor to cover more topics, and in more depth, than would be possible if practice tests were taken during class.

Practice tests are provided as part of your course materials, and your instructor will indicate when it is most beneficial for you to take them in order to best supplement your work in the classroom.
