"Exam Review & Highlighting Guide" Modules

Our Narrated "Exam Review & Highlighting Guide" Lectures walk you through each of the required State "Exam Reference Books" reviewing the concepts from these books which are currently being covered on the exam and explaining the problem solving techniques that you must master to do the math problems on your test.

These Presentations also pinpoint "Answer" passages to Highlight and critical pages to Tab for quick location.

Interactive "Study Questions" Modules:

We review the exam each and every time it is given and our "Study Questions" will be very similar to the questions that you will see on exam day. Each question in our cutting-edge program is accompanied by a "Hint" and "Detailed Explanation". For tough estimating or mathematical problems "Narrated Solution Presentations" are also attached right to the question for your review.

These features will ensure that you learn how to work through each problem or find the answer to each and every question on your exam. In the event that you do not fully understand any material, you are encouraged to call us at your convenience and one of our helpful instructors will be happy to review or explain any items and tutor you personally on the subject.

"Flash Card Review" Modules

Time is of the essence on exam day! The "Flash Card Review" component of our Learning Program is designed to help you develop and hone your search procedures to select the appropriate reference book and locate the correct answer pages quickly and efficiently. This review can be taken by individual book or by entire exam depending on your needs or skill level, and will pinpoint any areas of weakness upon completion.

Students who train with our Flash Card modules are "Up-To-Speed-To-Succeed", on exam day.

"Practice Exam" Modules:

Unlike other schools that only create one (typical) practice exam, our revolutionary system will randomly-generate a new set of questions each and every time you launch a module and utilizes the exact same content criteria the State uses to compile the real test.

This program will generate a unique "Performance Assessment" which isolates incorrect questions and provides (Detailed Explanations) to ensure students know exactly how to derive the correct answers. Easy-to-read graphs show the student's areas of proficiency and areas of weakness, along with where their speed is on target, or where they are too slow. This state-of-the-art tool gives our students a systematic approach to review & master the required exam material and increase their scores.

Because most contractors are active individuals out & about in the field each day, the experience of sitting in a cubical for 6 hours straight, taking a State certification exam on computer is very stressful. Especially when they have never used, nor ever even seen, the computer program they are being tested with. Our students have a tremendous advantage because our proprietary "Practice Exams" were designed to explicitly match the real State exam. It has the same look, features, and functionality so our students can practice using this program BEFORE they sit for the real deal.

Note: For piracy protection reasons users are restricted to five openings per module.

In fact this module is such an invaluable tool that even instructors at competitive schools encourage students to purchase this program to pass the exam.

Specialty Learning Modules

Trade-Exam "Math Review" Module:

There are always several involved math questions on every exam. Our Trade Knowledge Math Review module will go over basic geometry and how to use simple geometric shapes in figuring cost and material estimates, which you are expected to be proficient in.  It covers calculating asphalt for a parking lot, bulldozer excavating, brick wall calculations, labor costs based on material quantities, cubic yards of concrete for a slab, a stairway, an elevator pit, and a covered walkway, calculating sod costs, and figuring equipment cycle time.

Because some of these problems can be very time consuming and your exam time is limited it is important to understand that you should not waste too much time on exam day on complex problems with lengthy solutions. You need to have a basic understanding and learn to do quick estimates to find the most likely solution.  If you have extra time at the end of your exam you can always go back and do a more detailed calculation to ensure you selected the right answer.  Remember, a quick look-up question has the same point value as a long estimate question.

This math review module will teach you how to work through each problem in a fully detailed manner to find the exact solution, as well as tips for doing a quick estimate to find the closest answer choice quickly.

"Exam-Plans Analysis" Module:
