Registering for lecture or classroom courses can be an advantageous experience for anyone new to studying, or new to the subject being taught. The experience of a lecture course will allow students to practice exam questions in the syllabus format within a quiet classroom setting, very much like the conditions of the examination.

There are several companies that provide lecture courses for the exam, each approaching the exam preparation in a separate way. Below is a compiled list of what to look for during your lecture course selection.

Specialty lectures are designed for new students who wish to revise only one or few specialties for the exam instead of attending the whole course. This will effectively help you strengthen your knowledge on you weaker subjects.

Interactivity

The biggest benefit you can receive from attending lecture courses is to be able to participate within the lecture and to challenge yourself with the practice questions provided. Interactivity is very important. Being able to answer the questions personally and seeing the results of your answers can be a big indicator of what you know and how much work you have yet in front of you. Many and classroom courses only allow for one participant to answer a question, while the other participants merely listen. Other classroom courses allow for each participant to answer every question and then view their personal results, along with their results in comparison with their peers. When looking for a course to register for, make sure to look if they allow for interactivity or if it is merely a or classroom lecture, the distinction could be the difference between a pass and a fail.

The Lecturer

It is a good idea to look at who will be providing the vital information and practice questions during the classroom course. Having an experienced and well-trained lecturer not only ensures that the course is informative, but also allows you to walk away with a greater understanding of the material. A 4-day lecture course taught by an experienced lecturer can leave you feeling prepared and ready, whereas a 4-day course taught by an un-trained lecturer can leave you feeling more confused than when you stared your training.

Length of Classroom Courses

Courses can vary in length from 3-4 days to 3-4 years. Studying takes a considerable commitment. Always consider what you will have to give up so that you can study and how long you feel able to give it up for.

Of course when registering for a lecture course you are committing several days to the course. Many people find that these courses don’t fit very well with their present schedule or that there isn’t a lecture course offered in their geographic area.

If an online course will work best in your schedule, make sure they provide you with either an available online tutor, so as to email questions, or an online discussion board for the discussion of 1 and 2 topics with your peers. If you can find a programme with both an online tutor and a discussion board, you found the perfect online course, as you will find that interactivity is going to help you more than you thought in your and/or preparation.
