  • Practice tests to improve test taking skills

Students will continue to have access to the course videos and materials for two months following the end of the course.


Discussion Forum and Virtual Office Hours
Each week there will be a dedicated discussion forum in the course for public questions about the course material. The instructor will normally respond to questions within 24 hours.

If you have any questions for Bill Cross at this time, please send them to him directly at

Weekly virtual office hours will also be held in the corresponding weekly discussion forum. Virtual office hours are identical to in-person office hours as they allow students to ask course related questions and receive immediate feedback from the instructor.

Email and Phone
The instructor will respond to student emails throughout the course normally within 24 hours. Course questions of a general nature should be posted in the public weekly discussion forum. By appointment, the instructor will also be available by Skype for student questions.


Students should access all course materials and read all assigned readings. Students should complete homework assignments individually.

It is estimated that it takes 200-300 hours of study to adequately prepare for Exam P/1.   Students in the 10-week course should dedicate 10-20 hours per week at minimum to the course material in order to do well on Exam P/1. Students in the 18-week course should dedicate 6-12 hours per week at minimum.
