Q: Will the Social 30-1 review session help me to write the Social 30-2 diploma exam?

The Social 30-1 review session will serve as an overview of the concepts for the Multiple Choice portion of the diploma exam. However, it will NOT focus on the written portion of the Social 30-2 diploma exam which is distinctively different from the written portion of the Social 30-1 diploma exam.

Q: How do the iPrep Study Notes differ from the complimentary Instructor’s Study Notes provided with the DIPLOMAX In-class registration and On-line VIDEO REVIEW purchase?

The iPrep Study Notes and the DIPOMAX In-Class and On-Line Video Review resources have been developed by some of the same instructors. Consequently, some of the wording may appear to be similar. However, there are stark differences between the resources as they are intended to address different student needs.
  • The DIPLOMAX In-Class and On-Line Video Review resources are integral to the instruction provided during the session or when using the Video Review format. Examples, practice questions, and graphics used to explain and clarify key concepts referred to by the instructor during the review are contained in the resources for easy student reference. The DIPLOMAX In-Class and On-Line resources support a guided review of the subject provided by a face-to-face or video instructor.
  • The iPrep Plus resources contain a number of different features that make them ideal for year-long use at home to support classroom learning. In addition to addressing all course curriculum, the resources use color-coding to highlight key concepts, thus providing students with hints, reminders and issues to be aware of. Ten videos, each approximately 8-12 minutes in length, focus on the ‘tough topics’ in each subject. The videos can be viewed as many times as necessary to clarify understanding. The iPrep resources are designed to be self-paced, independent review and support to year-long classroom instruction.
