The practice sessions are scheduled based on Eastern Time Zone, if you are located in another area you may need to subtract or add a few hours.
For example, in the photo below we see there is a 3-hour difference between Eastern and Pacific Time. If there is a practice session that starts at 8 PM Eastern for a student in California the practice session would start at 5 PM Pacific Time. [8 – 3 = 5PM]
All the recordings will be posted on the message board under the announcement section.
They will be available for 4 days after being posted.

Don’t worry if you don’t have time to see them, we recommend covering the formulas and basic concept albums from the additional videos when you are free.
We recommend downloading the formula sheet from the documents section and completing the formula videos to understand how to use them. As you practice you will learn when and how to use them.
Keep in mind that during the test you will not have the formula sheet; nevertheless, as you practice you will memorize the formulas.
Recorded course classes are not the same as the recordings of the live practice sessions.
🅰️ After each class of the recorded course, you should do its assignment or simulation, and they are available to you in your study account 24/7.
🅱️ For live practice sessions, they are just that, practice, so they do not require an assignment. You can find the schedule and MESSAGE BOARD notifications in your study account.
The course is designed with a flexible schedule in mind, so there is no need to worry if you miss a practice session.
There will be multiple practice sessions to join during the week, and you may choose to join any of them. Some students prefer to practice in the mornings and others in the afternoon, so choose the session that best fits you.
