10 TIPS IN CHOOSING THE RIGHT REVIEW CENTER



1. TRACK RECORD

Choose a review center that has a high passing rate, this means that most of the people enrolled in their program are able to pass the test. You may also look if they produce topnotchers, but I think that the passing rate is still a better gauge.




2. LOCATION

Choose a review center located in a strategic place. Some people prefer to have their review in a place near their house. This way, they are able to make their time more productive rather spending that free time for traveling. Of course there are other solutions to enrolling in a distant review center. You can opt to rent a house or dorm, or you could live with relatives living near the review center of your choice.




3. REVIEWER AND LECTURER

Choose a review center that employ good reviewers. These reviewers or lecturers doesn’t necessarily have to be popular, what is important is that they have the credentials needed in being a lecturer and that they are effective in teaching.




4. TUITION FEE & LENGTH OF REVIEW

It is important to divide the tuition fee with the total number of lecture hours in a complete review program. This way, you will know the amount you are spending per hour of lecture time. There are review centers that offer cheap tuition fees but what we don’t know is that these deductions are due to a reduced number of lecture hours.




5. TIMING

Some students prefer to have their early review so that they could spend the rest of their time polishing their past lectures and notes, Others prefer to have their review up to the last moment so that lectures are still fresh in their minds. You have to choose what option is best for you.




6. STYLE OF REVIEW

The style of review affects learning. Some review centers focus their review on live lectures; others prefer to give handouts and other materials such as CDs and books. If you are disciplined and you know how to manage your time, I think that the latter works for you.




7. FEEDBACK

If you are going to enroll on a certain review center, look for students who rendered for their services in the past. Ask them to give comments on their experiences about their review. This way, you will know if other people are satisfied with that review center.




8. ENVIRONMENTWhen you are in the process of selecting a review center, see to it that they will provide you with a lecture or study room that is conducive to learning. This means that there are no noise coming from the traffic, the room must have comfortable chairs, they must have air conditioning units if possible.




9. NUMBER OF ENROLLEES

The greater the number of enrollees, the lesser the chance of getting the attention of the lecturers. For me, it is important to have a closer relationship with your lecturers and instructors. You are able to ask or clarify things which are not clear to you. Review centers can study the trend of errors committed in their pre-tests and it is easier to focus on the weakness of a small group of students.




10. PRAY

Pray for guidance. Ask Him to help you choose the right path for your success.
