Course Syllabus
Our syllabus is a comprehensive account of the materials that will be covered in this course. Please be aware that we do not recommend that students follow a topdown approach to watching the videos. Instead, our syllabus is designed to go through the video chapters in a specific order. You will cover enough material to progressively take diagnostic tests as you progress through this course.
It is highly recommended to follow the syllabus for maximum score improvement. Try not to allow too much time to elapse between video lessons and homework. Doing at least 2 days of video lectures per week is generally a good pace to follow.
