There are 11 modules. Each module has powerpoints and handouts to accompany the videos. The handouts are a shortened to-the-point notes with a short test at the end. The videos are of Jeff Solheim going through the power points and explaining what you need to know. Let me be very clear, this course was the single most helpful study tool I used. I studied for 3 months, specifically 12 weeks. I started the review right away and did one module per week.
I watched the module through 3 times. The first time I wrote notes on the powerpoints, the second time I wrote notes on the handouts and the third time, I stopped the module intermittently while creating flashcards. Taking the exam questions was really good practice, however, many of the rationales were not so great and I found myself more confused than before.
The Trivium CEN Review book was more helpful because it had information for you to review and at the end of the book a question test to take. If you want a book that is to the point and covers most of what you need to know, this is the book to buy. They had detailed specific rationales and the questions themselves helped prepare me the most for the exam. When I took my exam, I felt like Jeff Solheim had written the exam himself.
The material he said would be on the exam, was on the exam. The format of questions where exactly like the format on his online course. I felt very prepared, which is ironic because I was freaking out about taking this exam. So how did I go from freaking out to feeling prepared? I get asked this a lot, so I am going to share the study list that I used. I have it broken up into a week plan of which topic to cover per week.
Great post! Exams can be scary stuff. I love how you shared the specific tool and strategies that helped you be successful with this. Great article- sharing! Sandra, it would depend on your learning style. The videos in his course have value to me because I like to listen to someone tell me information and explain it more, rather than just read it. I will say that his notes are very good and cover what are in his course, however, some of the notes are bullet points that he goes into detail in the actual course.
To me the difference is that the notes are more a memorizing tool and the course is a learning tool. I would rather learn than memorize personally so it just depends on what works for you!
