The exams are TOUGH!

Tough for several reasons.

  • They require recall that takes repetition to build up
  • They require that you can separate out similar terms - that needs contrasting and comparing ( and repetition)
  • They require close attention to detail
  • They require understanding of the glossary of terms

So here are multiple ways to address all you needs.

Modern research shows a few fallacies in the way most people study and how most teachers - including in universities! - teach. Repeated practice of the same thing has strong IMMEDIATE correlation to recall and almost no effect on lasting recall. So what feels and tests as 'pleasing' is only a short lived positive. The harder the (study and) recall is to perform the more long-term benefit it has but the less short term reinforcement and so the less intuitive 'this seems right' feedback.

Here are a bunch of revision aids that might not feel as rewarding as you want themn to feel but he research says this medicine is doing you good!

Also research now shows that embedded long-term recall is material to ability to apply, particularly when application requires interpretation and adaptation to circumstances that are different from the originally learnt context and content.

Your best study regime is to mix-up the revision modes. Practice different topics one after another NOT the same topic over an over. Leave gaps between study and revision so short-term memory fades and revision is NOT from short-term (electrical) storage but from longer term (chemical?) storage.

In revision work through recall with the minimum of prompts - drag whats in your sub-conscious back into your conscious by grabbing any memory artefact you can and then expanding along "Did next", "That links to", "The diagram was... and another picture was...", "People involed are/ do/ tested by...".

The more the RevAids make you think and the more you recall on your own the more recall momentum you'll build and the more ability for both exam questions and the real world application that you'll develop

If you need more share your needs and I may be able to create you something to match :-)

Hi Simon

In case you don't get updates direct from PeopleCert, I took and passed the exam today (86% apparently) which I am thrilled about!

I wanted to thank you and compliment you again on your excellent training materials - the web tutorials were spot on and covered the subject areas really well and in an easy to digest way. All the revision aids, notes and test papers were extremely helpful to cement and add to the knowledge from the videos. In fact, I found I was spoilt for choice during the revision stage as there was so much available to use! In the end, I found that I used most items but to cover different needs and at different stages of the learning eg. the flash cards I found particularly useful nearer the exam as a way of repeating and recovering the content quickly.

I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone - whether they are new to Prince2 , revisiting it or looking purely for the Agile application. I am confident that anyone would get what they wanted from the course.

Many thanks

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your refund policy?
Our policy is that we make a substantial portion of the course available for free . We want you to know when you sign-up that we match your needs and style. At that point both we and you are committed. Commitment is important to reaching your end goal. A half-hearted start often results in an abandoned journey. Some providers lure you in with a money back promise and small print that says "but not if you've consumed over some percent" AND they know once signed-up that your time is unrecoverable. Now your psychology is less likely to let you say "got that wrong, abandon the time invested" so your pretty likely to stay put. We genuinely want you to have transparency BEFORE the decision and take that step with the same commitment we give you to help you get to your goal.
PERC, GDPR and Privacy/ Cookies Policies
We publish policies for privacy (GDPR, PERC etc) on our "www.logicalmodel.net" website. Basically they all say "by signing up to our products you are OK with us communicating with you until you opt out, we will not pass your details on but we may tell you about partners with complementary products. Where we use cookies they are part of the mechanics of the web-platforms we use, we do not employ any form of stealth tactic aimed at creating an unfair advantage for us over you. If you want to know what we hold then ask and we will give you everything as quickly as we can gather it.
When does the course start and finish?

Start is as soon as you're enrolled. End may be never, otherwise it is at th eend of the period in which you decide to end your subscription.

How long do I have access to the course?

Subscriptions run for one month or one year and roll-over automtically until you've had as much access as you need and stop them

Outright purchases last forever

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy so we offer plenty of "try-before-you-buy" free access materials.

An important part of passing exam credential courses, particularly eLearning ones is that you make the personal commitment. We ask you to only buy when you've made your decision. Then know we and you are both fully focused on your success from then on.

We do not offer money back options because when you sign-up with "well I can always change my mind" as your justification there is a weakening to the resolve that is necessary for success - That is not in your best interest if you are to swiftly progress and pass exams.

Other provider's "Money back" guarantees are a way of appearing to reducing 'purchasing risk' by seemingg to to transfer the impact from you to them BUT...

They are common because they use the psychology of regret that recognises you can't get your time back AND asking for a refund implies telling your self "I made a bad choice".

Both reinforce a "I would not have chosen if i knew then what i know now BUT I'll keep going because now it will be a hassle to start again." The likely outcome is your involvement drags on you, progress is slow and may halt entirely.

So please enjoy the free-access materials and confirm we are a good fit and then make your commitment.

Ultimately if you've a genuine reason that is not simply trying to game-the-system then talk to us - we are people too, and we try to be reasonable.

P.S. maybe you'd like to do our risk management masterclass companion to our Fast-Track risk course. (Both are included in our £5 bundle subscription.) I'm confident no-one else's project risk management has the content ours does. Others pretend risk is impact times probability of a single event single outcome chain. Niave in the extreme but common in text books.
