bullet Summary

    Although there are only six chapters in the textbook there are eight sections of study when we include the Introduction and the Summary.

  • STUDY:  Study only one section of the textbook at a time.  The link to the textbook is at the bottom of this page.  Take the section test at the end of each section.  You may not proceed to the next section until you pass the test for the current section and have looked up the correct answer in the textbook for every question missed on the current section test.  Your attendance for the next section begins the day after you pass the test for the current section.
    One week of attendance per section.
    (Equivalent to one hour of study.) Some sections may take more than one week to complete.
    Minimum suggested attendance overall for the entire course is 10-11 weeks even though there are only eight sections.  This is to give you ample time for those sections that may take more than one week to complete.

    If you proceed faster than the suggested pace, then you will not retain the information in the text.
  • TESTING:    The section tests should be taken on or after the 7th day of the suggested required week of study per section.
    Once you have completed all sections of the textbook and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on each test, then you will need to retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.
    If you miss any questions on the Final Test, even though you receive a passing score, you should review the textbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers to the questions you missed.  This will help you get the most out of the course.
  • We do not keep records for students who are Monitoring Only.  If you want to keep track of your own progress through the course, you can download and print the COURSE RECORD FORM.  On it you can keep a record of all pertinent information on such as date and score for each test so that you will be able to keep track of your progress through the course.
