B.

Dear B,

That is fine, I just needed you to know that it is important to prepare for all of the parts of the exam. People have been known to pass one section with the first time they write, then fail that part the second time. Each time you enter the CELBAN exam situation it is important to make sure that you have prepare for all of the sections, not just your weaknesses.
 
But first I have a question:

What are you looking for when it comes to preparing for CELBAN Writing? 

  • Are you looking for something to study alone?
  • Or do you want to attend a class?

Because, the answer to that question helps me to understand how best to direct you. 

With CELBANPrep being established in 2009, there are many options, many resources, and many ways of doing things. 

And, with the CELBANPrep Compassionate Pricing Policy, there are varying price points. 

Studying Alone

If you want to study alone, there are many resources available to you, through CELBANPrep. Consistent with the CELBANPrep Compassionate Pricing Policy, this is the most affordable route. 

These are your options if you want to do a self-study:

Those are the options if you want to study alone. There are advantages:

  • It is more affordable and cost effective. 
  • You can create your own schedule. 

But, there are disadvantages to self-study:

  • You don’t have anyone to get feedback from, to review your work, to comment on how you are doing. 
  • You may struggle with a lack of motivation, distractions, or poor study planning and habits.

Being Part of a CELBAN class

Another option available through CELBANPrep is being part of a class. The advantages are:

  • Receiving feedback,
  • Having motivational interactions,
  • Having a pre-set schedule to follow. 

The disadvantages are:

  • In order to pay the teacher, the cost is higher.
    • The longer the class, the higher the price. 
    • The fewer the students, the higher the price. (If you want one-on-one coaching instead of being part of a group.)
  • If the classes are synchronous, with everyone attending at the same time, there may be scheduling difficulties. 

There are several options available through CELBANPrep University: master classes, master minds and master challenges.

  • CELBAN online Master Classes:
    • CELBAN reviewer: Expose IENs to the format and structure – expectations – of the CELBAN.
    • 1 – 2 hour long session,
    • informational,
    • many students,
    • little interaction.
    • Least expensive.
  • CELBAN online Master Minds:
    • 5 – 2 hours per session focused on the Secrets to Success
    • fewer students,
    • asynchronous: indepdendent study, and
    • synchronous live interactive sessions.
    • More expensive.
  • CELBAN online Master Challenge:
    • CELBAN material: quizzes, handouts, assigments to practice skills required to pass the CELBAN.
    • 90 days
    • 1 hours per session,
    • fewer students,
    • asynchronous: indepdendent study, and
    • synchronous live interactive sessions.
    • Most expensive.

That is why, B, I have difficult in answering the question, “How much does it cost? What are your fees? How much is it?” 

CELBANPrep is designed the way education is designed in Canada; it is learner-centred. The CELBAN, with its rootes in the CLB is also designed that way; it too is learner-centred. 

That is one way I am teaching you how to be a patient-centred nurse, by example.

So my first question is,

What are you looking for when it comes to preparing for CELBAN Writing? 

  • Are you looking for something to study alone?
  • Or do you want to attend a class?

My second question is,

What can you afford?

  • Are you looking for CELBAN books, CELBAN courses and CELBAN material for self-study? 
  • Or, are you looking for CELBAN classes? 
    • Which one do you prefer? A 2 hour Master Class? A week long Master Mind? OR A 90 Day Master Challenge? 

The answer comes down to your needs, your situation, your preferences. And so, the answer is different for each and every IEN that asks me that question.
