About this Course

Welcome to the course that will change your life forever. The “How Adults Should Take an Exam” Course will help you move up in your skills set.

Try and take this course with a partner or friend. Try and discuss your learning challenges together. It is easy to post in each section of the class and often fellow students are most helpful.
