Are you trying to decide whether to use a study tool or if registering for one of our live exam review courses is better for you? Let's take a look.
Choose to study on your own with one of the Bowen EHS Study Tools if most of the following apply to you:
- I have a plan of how I need to study.
- I have enough discipline to study on my own.
- I am fairly confident that I can figure out what I need to study.
- I am self-motivated to find answers when I need to.
- Most of the exam material is review for me; I have been exposed to it before.
Live Exam Review Course
Choose to study with a certified instructor using an exam review course if most of the following apply to you:
- I study much better when someone helps me prioritize.
- I don't have the time to figure out what I need to study.
- I learn better when I have regular access to a live instructor and class.
- I prefer to have a structured study regimen to help me prepare.
- I am uncertain how much of the exam material I remember or know.
