Best School Tips

"Time Consuming...
Make sure you have the time to put into your education. Just because it's an online course does not mean you put just as much time into it as a conventional school setting." (Living Skills Specialist; 2014)

"Make Sure To Read All Of Your Books So That You Will Pass...
You need to spend time actually reading the books and remember everything that you read, because it will help you out a lot for the tests. You also need to make sure you have the time to put in for the program because it will take up quite a bit of your time during the week." (CNA/Phlebotomist; 2014)
