Although there are many institutions and schools offering preparation courses, all of the resources provided by CELBANPrep are online. The reason for this is many fold:
- being online decreases the cost. While the price of CELBANPrep is equal to the cost of other courses I can offer sales twice a month.
- being online makes the resources available when you are: whether you work the night shift, or if you are busy balancing work, family, school and yourself.
- being online allows me to teach people not only across the nation, but also around the world.
- being online makes it easier for mothers: they can do the lessons and assignments from home without having to worry about childcare and transportation.
Because I get asked this question all the time I have created several posts on my blog, Dear Kim, writing about each of these points.
Also, I caution you against registering for the exam, and taking it without preparation. I have written about this time and time again on Dear Kim, this link is to the MUST READ section. You only have three attempts to take the CELBAN, 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.
Please let me know what you think after reading some of the questions and answers on Dear Kim.
