1.4 Read, Prep and Pass.   back to top
You will most likely pass the State Exam on the first try if you follow these steps:

  • Study the entire reading material for all 3 courses, one course at a time.
  • Complete the quizzes for each course until you are answering at least 80% correctly without looking up the answers in the reading material.
  • Work to pass the final exam with at least a 75%. (You only need a 60% to pass and receive a Certificate of Completion.) If you do not achieve 75% correct, we suggest you speed read the material again, redo the quizzes looking up the questions you don't understand and retake the exam until you correctly answer 75%.
  • After completing the courses and applying for and receiving a date to take the State Exam, extensively study the Prep Book for at least 7 days before the exam.
  • Then take the State Exam. You will likely pass on the first try.
