Exam Prep Class:

This class will prepare you to take the South Carolina Residential Builder Licensing Exam.   We cover all the material that you can bring into the exam. We review all the areas of the test that you are expected to be familiar with and we tab and highlight the areas of the manuals so that you can find the material in the books quickly and efficiently in the exam. We coach you on the logic for how to navigate the test, how to review the questions, quickly recognize the book to reference and how to hone in on the section to validate the right answers. (There is a logic to how to properly manage the test.)

Once you have registered for the exam you will receive an email giving you your login information and full access to the online video review book by book, and full access to the study guide and multi-book Question and Answer material.

We recommend that once you have gone through the course, highlighted and tabbed the books  - that you review the Q&A material often enough that you readily know what book and what section of the book you're looking for based on the question you're reviewing. (That's when you know you are ready for the exam).
