What do students learn in the session?

Students will work through test prep strategies, including time management, skipping strategies, guessing strategies, and common question types, among other concepts. Some curriculum is reviewed in terms of test prep strategies. However, these are not curriculum courses, and curriculum will not be taught in detail.

What do students need to bring with them?

Students need to bring a notebook, writing utensil, a calculator, and a snack. Wear layers as the classroom could vary in temperature.
Computers will be available in the classroom for in-person classes, but students can choose to bring a personal computer to class. A workbook will be provided to each student to keep. Students are responsible for bringing them to each class to fully participate in the session.

How are the classes organized?

Weekday sessions typically meet for eight classes in the evening, two evenings a week, three hours each class. Weekend sessions typically meet both Saturdays and Sundays for several hours. Class time is spent working through each section of the test.
*See the session schedules for specific days and times of each session.

Where can I find the class meeting information?

An information email will be sent out approximately one week before the session begins. Make sure to use an active email address for registration so that vital communication is received in a timely manner. Add the confirmation email (info@ collegiatetestprep.com) to the safe senders list to prevent communication going to the spam/junk box.

What is the attendance policy?

Attendance is expected for each class. Instruction is live, whether in-person or online, and exclusive to the class, so valuable information is missed when absent. Students cannot take a class at a later date to replace a missed class.

Where do students get a workbook if they are registered for a virtual session?

Workbooks will be mailed to virtual students paid-in-full approximately one week prior to the start of the session. In special circumstances, the workbook can be picked up from our office at Central Piedmont Community College Central Campus by appointment only.

Will students take a practice test?

Students will be expected to take an online-based practice test at home before the first class. Instructions will be emailed out approximately one week before the session starts.

What version of the ATI TEAS exam does the course cover?

The ATI TEAS Version 7 is the current version of the test covered in the course. No previous version of the exam is available. All TEAS exams currently offered through ATI are Version 7 exams.

Will students get a break during class?

Students typically get a ten-minute break halfway through the class. However, instructors may give additional breaks as needed. Students are free to use the restroom at any time during the class.

Is food provided during the class?

Food is not provided during the class. Students are encouraged to bring a drink and a snack or lunch with them. Vending is available on campus for students who do not come prepared with food.

Cell phone policy?

We want all students to be fully engaged in their test prep course.  To encourage full immersion, we ask that students limit cell phone use during class. Students are welcome to use their cell phones on breaks, but phones should be tucked away during the duration of learning.

Are classes in-person or virtual?

Courses are offered as in-person sessions or live virtual online sessions. They are not mixed between the two deliveries.
*See the session schedules for specific course delivery.

Can students repeat the class for free?

Students cannot repeat a class free of charge. If they would like to take the class again, they will need to register for a new session and pay the tuition for the offering.

Will students have access to the curriculum materials outside of class?

Collegiate Test Prep curriculum materials are not shared externally. Instructors offer information on accessible resources that extend beyond the classroom so that students can continue their prep once the session has concluded. The class workbook will also include additional resources to continue the prep process.

Will I have access to a student website?

Collegiate Test Prep offers an exclusive website to virtual students currently enrolled and paid-in-full. Students have six weeks of access to the site containing the course materials to review and study for the exam. Course materials cannot be downloaded or shared with anyone who is not currently enrolled in the course. Virtual students will receive an exclusive access link one to two days before the session begins. Access to the site will not be extended beyond the six weeks.

Where do students register for the actual ATI TEAS 7 Exam?

Students can choose to register to take the ATI TEAS 7 exam through ATI TEAS at a local testing center, or they can choose to register for the exam at Central Piedmont Community College. See the college Testing Center website for specific details about testing at Central Piedmont. In some cases, it is less expensive to take the test at Central Piedmont than at an ATI testing center. Students who choose to take the exam at the college will need to register and schedule the test through the college rather than through ATI.

What is the weather policy?

If the college closes, classes will be adjusted accordingly. In most cases, in-person classes will be moved to a synchronous virtual environment, but virtual sessions will rarely be affected by college closures. If a class is completely canceled, a makeup class will be offered at a later date.

Can visitors attend class with the student?

We do not allow non-paid individuals/parents to audit the class. Only paid students and instructors are allowed in the classroom.
