End of Class Test
This will be a special class consisting of nonstop live practice problems. I will be challenging you with every exam topic focusing on difficult and tricky questions to expose any last minute weakness that you need to work on before the exam. This class will be one week prior to the exam to give you plenty of time to re-watch and practice after.

This is NOT a lecture and student participation will be highly pushed for. Come prepared, bring your calculator and be ready to be thoroughly tested!

What's Included



Attend Live

Every Week

You'll get an email calendar invite for each class with a link to access the live webinar that will become active at the start time. Once inside you'll be able to hear by audio, see my screen cast, ask questions in real time, and interact with other students in the live chat room.



Watch Later

As Many Times as you Like

Each live webinar class is automatically recorded then uploaded to the online course the very same night. Incase you can't make it due to a scheduling conflict, or if you'd like to watch it again for extra practice, there are no limits on number of replays.



.PDF Notes

To Download After

I don't believe in reading off power point slides. Each class is live with no canned material. Questions and diagrams will be prepared prior, then everything will be worked out live on screen. The completed notes are then uploaded as a .PDF file for you to download afterwards.

How it Works

Prepare for the topic ahead of time with the online course.

Email me specific discussion points about the subject you'd like discussed.

Ask me to pause, repeat, or clarify when you are stuck or confused.

Bring your calculator and be prepared to answer questions in the chat.

Re-watch the uploaded recording as many times as you need to.

Download the PDF notes of everything that we worked out on screen.
