Are my odds of passing the exam better if I've taken a review course?
Generally, 1 in 4 or 1 in 5 students don't pass the exam on the first attempt. Don't despair, students have passed the certification exam without taking a review course! Students who attend APEA's live review course have a greater than 99% pass rate on the exam on their first attempt. If a live review course isn't in your budget or can't be fit into your time schedule, consider purchasing access to an online version of the course or purchasing an audio version of the review course on an mp3 player. APEA no longer produces review course CDs; be cautious about any that you see for sale on other sites because they are outdated.
The advantage of the APEA review course is that it helps students identify their strengths and weaknesses in exam content, learn to approach and answer multiple choice questions, and develop a study plan. The course is a real time saver because the information is organized in a concise manner to allow students to maximize study time.
