STUDY TIME: What Is Required / FAST TRACK
How Long Do You Have To Study For The Exam?
This is entirely dependent on your current skill level and knowledge. Math skills, especially advance math skills, take years of education to learn and develop. Before you begin this course, you should have foundational knowledge of this material from your prior education because a lot of the course should be a review. However, if you’re needing to learn a lot of the material for the first time – it can take months to learn and master the topics. Again, every student is different and you don’t need to learn everything perfect to pass or score well enough on the exam to achieve your goal- so ultimately, how much time it will take to prepare for the exam is up to you. Nevertheless, it’s reasonable that most students should plan on multiple months of study to really be at the highest level of readiness to do well on the exam.
