What Is So Special About the CELBANPrep Text Books?

A. What is special about the CELBANPrep Text Books?

For one, it is important to shift your expectations for CELBANPrep based on other resources created by Cambridge University Press etc for the IELTS, for example. These books provide sample tests: lots of them.

In teaching people that the way to pass an exam is through memorization, these books create the false belief that if you keep retaking tests you will eventually get the score you are seeking!

This is not so for the CELBAN.

The CELBAN is the Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses. As such it is:

  1. a Canadian exam infused with the Canadian culture,
  2. based on benchmarks – competencies equivalent to a grade.

How long does it take for you to graduate up one grade?

A year.

It takes similar time, effort and practice to increase your score one point.

Sample tests will not teach you about the English language and Canadian communication skills!

By taking tests over and over again will not acquire the skills and competencies you need to demonstrate to get the required benchmark for the CELBAN! It take practice, guided by skilled

By taking tests over and over again will not acquire the skills and competencies you need to demonstrate to get the required benchmark for the CELBAN! It take practice, guided by skilled coaches and tutors to acquire and demonstrate the skills you need.

Self study for the CELBAN, therefor, is impossible. CELBANPrep has taken this into consideration by:

  • breaking down each CELBAN task into skills you need to acquire,
  • providing lessons teaching you how to acquire those skills,
  • embedding videos ,
  • providing examples of writing and speaking created by other IENs (provided with permission),
  • Supplying assignments for each lesson,
  • providing self-evaluation tools,
  • adding a section with tips and suggestions for coaches/mentors/tutors/guides, and
  • providing you with resources so that you can create your own sample questions!

It is through CELBANPrep that you have access to creating hundreds of sample tests! The possibilities are endless.

What other resource does that? NONE!

Is there not value in that?

And how much do you think it costs to create textbooks with embedded videos?

Is there not value in that?
