Discuss questions with the instructor in an interactive format, focusing on particular problem areas and questions to practice valuable techniques and correct errors before the actual exam.
Simulate and self-score a proctored mock exam under timed conditions that is reviewed by the instructor in the classroom, enabling students to estimate their actual test scores prior to the real exam.
