The schedule may vary depending on the course and the questions asked. We are committed to helping all students succeed on the exam and answering all questions may take longer than outlined on the schedule.

After not passing I was devastated! However, this course provided a different outlook for me. It gave me a chance to practice my test taking strategies and learn how to analyze the questions. The instructor was great and I feel good about re-taking the exam.
