Students take two full-length practice exams outside of class to become familiar with the test format and types of questions, and as a way to measure their growth over the progress of the class. In-class time is used for shorter practice sets, learning test-taking and time management strategies, and reviewing content. Instructors write evaluations with remarks summarizing the student's successes and challenges.
