Did you get your FREE CELBAN Preparation Books yet?

Two FREE CELBAN Preparation E-book Reviewers

Dear Friend,

Have you checked out Amazon of late?

If you have you will see a whole host of new resources to assist you in preparing for the CELBAN. And, there are 4 more in the wings, just waiting for their debut. So, at this moment I have not done much to promote them or tell everyone about them. But, I do want to tell you about two new titles that came out:

As you may know, these two resources are FREE CELBANPrep E-books!!! They are free with a Kindle Unlimited Account. (Or $2.99. I would charge less or not at all, but this is the lowest Amazon will allow me to go. So, Kindle Unlimited it is!)

CoI I heard that the chances of passing [the CELBAN] is higher than IELTS because it is medical in nature and is intended for nurses

I heard that the chances of passing [the CELBAN] is higher than IELTS because it is medical in natureDear Kim,
Thank you for your email. I am an internationally educated nurse from the Philippines aiming to be registered here in BC in the near future. We landed here in …. with my family…  I worked in the UAE for more than 9 years before coming here. Now, I am still in the process of completing the requirements for the NNAS application, and just like any other IEP’s ,  getting the required english proficiency test (Ielts) is a bit of a challenge since they require a certain score in each of the categories..I have taken the Ielts  academic version in the past with an overall band score of 7 in 2010 for immigration purposes. Since it is already expired, i need to provide a recent result to the regulating body in order to begin the process of assessment.  I have already taken 2 times in Abu Dhabi last year with only 6.5 band score since I scored less in writing and reading..Now i am contemplating of giving another try here in BC  this month and if still not successful, I will opt for Celban. I heard that the chances of passing [the CELBAN] is higher than ielts because it is medical in nature and is intended for nurses that’s why i am optimistic that i will also pass the test with enough preparation and guidance/ strategies.
Thank you for the free study guide and practice tests in advance!
Kind regards,
J

Amazon just released a new CELBANPrep E-book and it is FREE!Dear Friend,

I am so excited! Amazon just released a new CELBANPrep E-book! And it is only $2.99 or FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Over the past while I have been working diligently doing damage control when it comes to negative review I have been receiving on Amazon where people have claimed that the resources I have created are a scam. Thinking they are protecting others, they have voiced their opinions without contacting me to troubleshoot what is happening, to be part of the solution.
