How to Prepare for CELBAN Contains 5 Books:
- Introduction to the CELBAN
- CELBAN Reading Practice Exams
- CELBAN Writing Study Guide
- CELBAN Listening Practice Exams
- CELBAN Speaking Study Guide
For reading and listening you get practice exams, which are actually from an older version of CELBANPrep. For writing and speaking you get study guides. The reason for the difference is because I continually had people asking me what the difference was between a study guide and the practice exams. Also, getting both packages allows people to better understand the differences in CELBANPrep between the the courses for writing and speaking, and the sample tests for reading and listening. These differences are based on whether a person studies independently (reading and listening) or with one-on-one interaction with a teacher in a course (writing and speaking).
For CELBANPrep Writing and CELBANPrep Speaking the lessons and assignments focus on preparing for different task on the exam. For instance there are four tasks for CELBAN Speaking, so for CELBANPrep there are four lessons: one for each task. It is not possible to give you free preparation for speaking (or writing) for two reasons:
- four tasks can not be taught in less time than in four lessons for speaking and eight lessons in writing,
- preparing for these task require a teacher who must be paid, in the same way you as a nurse must be paid.
Maria, I have done the best than I can to provide free resources. While I have priced CELBANPrep equal to classes for other similar courses, unlike those courses I offer sales twice a month.
At the end of the day, Maria, you have a decision to make: are you worth the investment in yourself? By investing in yourself, by taking prep classes, you are investing in your future. By investing in yourself you are saving both time and money so that when you take the CELBAN you are both prepared and confident. With this confidence you will perform to the best of your ability. I can not guarantee that you pass, because that depends on how much you practice and how well you do, but I can guarantee that you feel more confident and prepared than if you go into the exam without a prep class, so that you walk out of that exam feeling proud of yourself instead of insecure like other people.
At the end of the day you save money, because you are prepared and perform to the best of your ability on the exam. You save time, because you are not wasting any of your three attempts at the CELBAN. You only have three attempts, and your score will expire in two years so you need to have one chance available when it does expire. So really you only have two chances. Taking the exam without preparation, for many, is like throwing away a chance.
At the end of the day taking a prep class allows you to progress in your licensure process faster than if you are walking on this path alone.
At the end of the day you need to decide which path to take; you need to decide if you are a worthy investment. Your family believes you are. The question is do you think you are?
I wish you the very best in your process, Maria.
