You will most likely pass the state exam on the first try if you follow these steps:

  • Read the entire 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.
  • Try 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 and redo the quizzes looking up the questions you don't understand.
  • After completing the courses and applying for and receiving a date to take the state exam, extensively study only the Preparation book with its CD during a period of at least 7 days before the exam.
  • Then take the state exam. You will likely pass on the first try.
