Business TeamDear K,
Hi! Great question. It all depends on what you afford and how much time you have.

If you do not have a lot of extra money for resources I recommend you start with the Reading and Listening Study Guides, for only $4.99. (www.celbanprep.info) Then I recommend you save up for the CELBANPrep Writing, followed by CELBANPrep Speaking and the Reading/Listening Sample Test. That way you are forwarding your skills in reading and listening while saving your money. This is a great time management strategy. The required score on listening is 10, which is at the university level. It will take time, practice and hard work to achieve this end. Starting now is the best thing you can do.

If you do not have a lot of time, I recommend the same steps, for different reasons. It takes time to increase your score in reading, listening and writing. the more time you have to turn your grammar weaknesses into strengths, the more prepared and confident you will be for the exam. It takes time to learn a language. It takes time to become competent in a new skill. It takes practice to be able to complete a report in 20 minutes.

If you have both time and money I recommend the Course Bundle and the Study Bundle.

If your exam is in a month start with CELBANPrep Speaking, Listening and Reading. There is not enough time to complete CELBANPrep Writing.

If you have an exam date, within two months, and have already taken the exam once, I recommend postponing the exam until you are confident you will pass. You are only allowed to take the exam 3 times, and the score will expire in two years so it is imperative that you pass the second time. I have met too many nurses whose dreams of being a nurse have been shattered because they failed the exam three times. The scars are deep, too deep.

The last comment does not apply if you have passed the CRNE and taking the CELBAN is the last step in your process. In this instance you do not have to worry about the exam expiring, and you do have to more opportunities to take the exam.

If you are writing the CELBAN for the third and last time, ensure you have done everything in your power to develop your skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking English. Ensure that you have mastered the Canadian culture, phrases and collocations. Make sure that you have achieved these skills at a University level. Your future and your self concept depends on it.

So, K under which category do you fall? Which is hte best option for you?

  1. Hi Kim,
    This is A.D… how could I avail of that promo which is 70% off? And also, the reading and listening which is only 4.99$? Thanks. I hope to hear from you very soon.

    • Dear AD.

      With the popularity of CELBANPrep, Sales during the 2013 year have been limited. I had so many people subscribe to CELBANPrep in January that only two sales followed: one in February and one in May. Both were limited seating.

      As I will be creating courses for reading and listening over the summer, there will be no sales until September. Again, the spaces will be limited.

      The benefit of paying full price is a guarantee that you have a space.

      Sales are usually pretty low, but not usually 70% off. The regular price for reading and listening study guides is $4.99. Please go to http://www.reading.celbanprep.info or http://www.listening.celbanprep.info for more information.

      I hope this helps, A.D!

    Dear kim, can you please tell me how much is your fee to prepare celban for 1 month and also tell me is it easier to practice online because i never studied online before so i m confuse that what should i do .   thanks kim. baljit


    • Dear Baljit,
      Wow that was fast! I just posted this question and answer!
      First, I recommend the free resources at http://www.celban.info. Here you will get a self assessment for writing, and practice tests for reading and listening with a study guide for speaking.
      Second, I recommend you go to http://www.celbanprep.info to find out about the for fee resources. You will find out more about the courses (4 lessons in 4 weeks for Speaking, 8 lessons in 8 weeks for Writing and the study guides and practice exams for reading and listening.) NOTE some people need longer to pass the mid session exam for writing and may take longer to complete the course.

      Now that you have the background information, on to your real question. As you have already discovered Dear Kim please review the tags: writing reports, how it works and thank you. Here you will discover answers from what other people have to say about CELBANPrep.

      Is it easier to practice online?

      Originally I taught 4 classes in a classroom: one class for each skill. I discovered with the busy lives of nurses working shift work no one could attend all four classes. Yet I have developed one lesson for each task for speaking and eight lessons for writing. That is 12 lessons. If people can not attend 4 lessons how could they attend 12?

      The answer is online. With all of the resources and the posting of assignments online, everyone can study at each person’s individual pace based on individual schedules and preferences. An IEN working 3-11 can post assignments at midnight. A mom getting up to feed baby at 4:00 and not able to get back to sleep, can read her lesson then. Someone travelling home to take care of family or attend a wedding, can continue his or her studies.

      With everything online, you don’t have to pay for books, and extra costs for the facility.

      For writing you get a writing coach, who works with you on your writing assignments in the same way you write e-mails. For speaking you get to attend conference calls, in the same way you talk to people back home on Skype.

      Basically, you already engage in the same activities that have been integrated into CELBANPrep. Why? Because it works. CELBANPrep is available where you are, when you are.

      Finally, if you are still not sure contact people who have commented on Dear Kim or who show in their comments on Facebook that they have subscribed to CELBANPrep. Ask them, is it easy to practice online? They will tell you CELBANPrep is easy to follow, and it takes time management to make the time to practice.

      Taking the CELBAN without preparation can be detrimental. See my tag: WARNING.

      I hope this answers your question, Baljit!


      P.S. It is such a great question I will be posting it as its own post! KK
