  • You should complete your first practice test before your first class session. See below for more details.
  • Note that you will be able to score your practice test beginning 10 days before your first scheduled sessions when you have full access to your Dashboard.

Understand Your Course Schedule

Your course includes two types of sessions:


    These testing blocks have been written into your course schedule to help you to set aside time to complete the required practice exams throughout the course. These tests are to be completed at your home, a library or any place where you will be able to focus and be able to complete the practice test in one sitting. Depending on your location and schedule, you may be able to arrange to join an in person practice test session run by The Princeton Review. To inquire about options, contact LiveOnline Student Support.

    You do NOT need to complete the tests during the scheduled times. However, you should complete tests regularly throughout your program, and the placement of the testing blocks is meant to guide you. For example, if your schedule includes a Saturday morning test followed by a Tuesday class, you may definitely take the test on Sunday or at another time you find more convenient, but you should finish the test before the Tuesday class.

    Practice tests and answer sheets are included with your textbook material. Consult the syllabus on the Resources page of your Dashboard for more information about the order in which you should complete the tests.

    Practice tests simulate the duration and time pressure you will encounter on the actual test. The initial test session introduces you to what you are up against, and identifies strengths and weaknesses that will guide your preparation. Later test sessions are important opportunities to apply what you are learning in class.

    You should always record your answers in your test booklet as well as on your answer sheet. Most students find that completing an entire page of the test or two facing pages before taking time to enter answers on the answer sheet improves focus. Recording your answers in your test booklet also enables you to score your test immediately.

    Keep your test booklet at the end of a test sessions—do not discard it! You will use your test booklet and your score report to review your performance. If you arrange to take a test at an in person practice test session, answer sheets are given to the proctor but the test booklet is part of your textbook materials to keep. Note that this is different than what happens at an actual test administration where you must give back your test booklet.

    Once you have completed your test, you will enter your answers into an online form in the Practice Tests tab of your Dashboard. Click Start beside the appropriate test, then Launch Bubble Sheet. Note that if you complete essay section and want feedback, you will need to type in your essay.

    You will instantly receive an interactive report that analyzes your score. Note that feedback on the essay section may take up to an additional three days to be added to your score report. If you arrange to take a test at an in person practice test session, the interactive score report will be available within a week.

    Classes are led by a live instructor in a virtual classroom at the times listed in the Schedule tab of your Dashboard. The Go To Class link for your LiveOnline class session in the Schedule tab of your Dashboard will become active 15 minutes early. We encourage you to use this time to make sure that you are fully logged into the classroom for the start of the session.

    Note that in rare cases when technical difficulties prevent students from logging in to the virtual classroom through the Dashboard, direct links may be sent out by email.

    Classes are interactive. Come prepared to learn by participating. Your success depends on mastering both content and specialized test taking techniques. Classes will involve reading questions aloud and working through problems to practice techniques. Your instructor will call on you! And bring an open mind because some techniques will be different than what you may have learned in other contexts.
