Help - I need somebody!
We’ve all been there. Maybe it was when you were halfway through a chapter and you realized that nothing you’d just read made any sense. Or maybe it was when you spent the second weekend in a row staring at the anatomy diagrams wondering how anybody ever made it past Chapter 1.
Don’t worry! Help is just around the corner!
When you get stuck in your materials – or frustrated with a concept you just can’t grasp – there are several places you can turn to for help.
The Exam Prep Blog: Of course I’d highlight this one first. And since you’re reading this post I’ll assume you’ve found your way here. If there is a question you have there is probably a post that addresses it. Just scan through the entries, or check the category list or tag list on the right hand side for ideas.
ACE Community: When I refer to the ACE Community, I’m referring to ACE Certified Professionals as well as other ACE candidates. You can find discussion about the exam and ideas about exam preparation in the following places
Discussion Board: Check the ACE Exam Candidates thread for discussions on exam topics and general preparation. You may also be able to find a study buddy here.
Facebook: Yep, ACE has a Facebook page and you can find talk about professional topics as well as frequent discussion on exam preparation. This may be another place to find a study buddy, or just to brainstorm options for studying. There are comments from ACE Professionals who have recently sat for the exam as well as other ACE candidates who are in various stages of preparation.
ACE Education Consultants: You see them referred to at the end of every blog post…so give them a call! Our Education Consultants are all ACE certified professionals (some with more than one certificate) and familiar with the study materials. They can help you with understanding a tricky concept as well as helping you figure out what material to use when. Study assistance, and helping you be successful on your exam, is what we do. You can reach the Education Consultants by phone at 1-888-825-3636 x782, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking the ‘Live Help’ button at the top of our webpage. We’re here from Monday to Friday, 8 am – 5pm PST.
