Below are some frequently asked questions and answers for my Prep Kit:

1.)    How often should I study? Daily. It may seem impossible, but it isn’t. Consider some other things you do everyday: Brush your teeth, eat, watch TV, sleep, make your bed, (maybe not the last one). Make study a part of your daily ritual. It’s important! The state of Illinois test is challenging. Don’t underestimate it. Achieving your goal requires some sacrifices. Modify your schedule and lifestyle to accommodate your goal. Start your daily prep with 30 minutes and add more time later.

2.)    When should I begin my hard core prep? Ideally, hard core prep should begin 6 to 8 weeks before the final exam. The final exam is your state of Illinois test. This schedule allows you time to gradually build up your “muscle-memory.”     

3.)    What is hard core prep? Hard core prep is time dedicated to serious, consistent and undistracted study. Hard core prep includes time doing practice tests, reading source materials and memorizing your flash cards.

4.)   When is the best time to study? The best time is that time when you can devote 30, 60 or 90 undistracted minutes to your hard core prep. 

5.)    What is the benefit of flash cards? The benefit of flash cards are: 1.) helps develop muscle-memory of testable concepts, facts and figures, and, 2.) identifies your strong and weak areas.

6.)    What is the benefit of audio files? The main benefit of audio is allowing you to take advantage of free time. You’ll be able to listen to your materials while driving, jogging, or commuting on public transportation.

7.)    What is real-world prep? Real-world prep is practicing (test-taking) multiple times before test day, to prepare yourself for the anxiety, stress, and panic on final exam day. The more real-world prep you do, the less anxiety, stress and panic you will feel on final exam day.

8.)    What is the difference between real-world and hard core prep?  Hard core prep is the time spent doing all the activities which prepare for your final exam. Real-world prep is a specific activity designed to reduce panic, stress, and anxiety-related feelings that occur when taking an important and challenging test.

9.)    How much time do I need to study per day to make good progress?  Depends. It depends on how much time you take to prep for the final exam. If you start 8 weeks before the final exam, less time is needed per day. If you start 4 weeks out, then more time may be needed. However, depending on the person, these times will vary. Caution: Cramming doesn’t work. Waiting until the last week will not help you make progress. Marathon runners train for six months to run 26 miles - and live!

Here is a sample of one of the multiple practice tests included in my Study Guide. This Terms and Definitions Cheat Sheet covers investigation content from Gilbert's Criminal Investigation textbook. Also included in the Kit are multiple audio files like the one below. This audio file summarizes an eavesdropping law. One way to study audio files is to listen to them during your commute.
