Spring 2017 Exam 9 Online Review Course Schedule

Your time is valuable. Our concise and comprehensive article review and problem-solving videos are no more than 10-15 minutes in duration.

Our e-Review tests, released 4-5 weeks before the CAS exam, are designed to maximize your final weeks of study.

Six tests

  • Comprising over 75 challenging computational and short answer questions.
  • 15 CAS exam style questions per test

(Read, Assess, Choose, Execute) is an interactive product that we developed and initially released in the summer of 2014 to train candidates on how best to answer CAS exam short answer questions. With the short answer component on CAS exams accounting for no less than 35% of the points on exams 5, 7, 8, and 9 and no less than 65%-75% of the points on exam 6 preparing quality responses is an invaluable skill to master.

How it works

Candidates login to our e-Learning Center, download a series of actual CAS short answer questions, solve them on their own, and then watch our problem solving videos to see how their solution matches with ours. These videos are designed to train candidates to use an easily remembered (R.A.C.E.) step-by-step method to formulate consistently strong responses for short answer questions. Repetitive drilling guarantees that the process itself becomes second nature so that more time can be spent on identifying and recalling the concepts that are key to a high-point-scoring response.
