What is the difference between the initial and final review coaching session? Is one coaching
session more important than the other? How will participating in the coaching sessions help my
EPPP or CPLEE score?
Dr. Elizabeth Stanton addressed these questions in a Facebook Live event last month. In her
broadcast, she gave an overview of what the initial and final review coaching sessions entail.
She explained why utilizing both will contribute to a passing EPPP or CPLEE score.
In all the focus on being academically prepared to take the EPPP, it’s easy to overlook some of the important practical preparations a candidate needs to do in order to be properly prepared.
In the video below, Dr. Graham Taylor walks us through the best practices for your exam day routine, from the moment you wake up through to the process of taking the exam itself. Dr. Taylor also addresses what the week before your exam should look like, as well as the day directly prior to it.
The ASPPB has changed the launch date of the EPPP Step 2 to January 2020.
The EPPP Step 2, which is intended to complement the existing EPPP through assessing competency and skills, was previously being planned for a January 2019 launch. By pushing the date forward by a year, the ASPPB has more time to develop the new exam to the same standards as the existing EPPP.
This means that those licensed prior to 2020 will not be required to take the EPPP2.
In a live broadcast on July 27th, Dr. Graham Taylor gave an overview of TSM’s program and explained some of the reasons our learning platform has been able to achieve a 94% first-time pass rate. Dr. Taylor shared his own story of how the pressures of needing to pass the EPPP with only a month to study forced him to take a step back to analyze how the human brain works, and also to study how various theories of memory and learning can be incorporated into the learning process. The result was a paradigm shift in the learning process which is responsible for TSM 94% first-time pass rate.
What is the EPPP? Why is licensure important? What requirements does a candidate have to meet before they can apply to take the psychology licensing exam? Dr. Graham Taylor addressed all these questions in a Facebook Live event earlier this month. In his broadcast, which can be watched below, Dr. Taylor gave an overview of the EPPP, explained what content areas a person should expect to see on the EPPP and how the percentages in these content areas are changing as of February 2018.
At TSM, your success is what we strive for; it’s why the method exists. Success means motivated and supported study, confidence in the testing center, and a passing score. Take a look at how TSM helped one member succeed:
“I studied for the EPPP using TSM’s monthly online program, and I found it to be very helpful to me passing the exam, and just recently! I liked the attention to different ways people learn by providing material across video, audio, and written formats. The initial assessment and the resulting customized study plan according to the scores on the assessment were incredibly helpful. Topics are covered thoroughly and with explanations that are generally user friendly versus technical. Each topic includes a mind map (visual summary) and is followed by notes that you can revise and make your own. After reading on several topics, you take a quiz and get that content further reinforced. Everything is online so I didn’t have to worry about downloading and taking up data, or lugging stacks of study materials around. I felt connected to the support from TSM through the use of the program, specifically meeting via phone with an instructor to discuss study schedule and answer any questions and availability of chat with staff or peers who are studying themselves. Thank you for calling me every so often to check in, especially when I had put studying on pause. The program worked very well for me and I am so thankful that once in the actual exam, I felt very prepared after studying, and I passed.
While the program was excellent, it did take me a good amount of time to move through the material (as in there is heavy content). There are pros and cons of this, and since I have been out of school for some time, it was helpful to have more rather than less.
Thank you for taking the time to hear my feedback on the TSM program, and I hope that you continue to provide the service that you do.
Best wishes to you! – Nicole”
