20 Week Quick Start

For your convenience, we’ve compiled a few key downloads and links for you on this page. Please be sure to:

  1. Make sure you’ve registered for the the 20 Week Guided Session of your choosing. Each session precedes a scheduled exam by roughly six months (February, June, October).
  2. Once you’ve decided on a session, be sure to subscribe to that session’s Google Calendar. This link, unique to each session, is provided within the registration confirmation and welcome email.
  3. Download the reading assignment overview. All reading assignments are listed within your individual Guided Session Overview (PDF) and within the actual course but it’s nice to have all reading assignments in one place.
