4. Preparation

In preparation for every class please read the chapter we're planning to cover and have your questions ready. Our mentors will provide an in-depth discussion of each domain, but you will need to put the majority of your effort into studying outside the training program. In every class we will have a mentor covering a different domain and providing their own style of teaching. Some will focus on your questions, some on your test taking skills but all will do their best to provide you with guidance to pass your exam
