What Do We Mean When We Say Our Guides Are Test-Aligned?

Our study guides are aligned with your test’s standards.

Our curriculum team studies all of the standards and competencies for the exams we offer and cross-referenced them with the current and previous questions used by the testing company. We then work with content and teaching experts to distill down what a test-taker needs to know. We like to think we give test-takers everything they need and nothing they don’t! Read more about how our study guides are aligned with your test.

How Does the Subscription Work?

Our subscription will give you access to every study guide we offer in the testing series you have subscribed to.

You can subscribe on any one of the study guide pages you are needing.

Your monthly subscription renews every month on the same date as when you started your account. For example, if you subscribe on the 11th day of the month, your billing will renew on the 11th of every month until you cancel.

You can cancel your recurring monthly subscription at any time on your profile page.

Does 240 Offer Discounts (military, senior citizen, promotion, etc.)?

The short answer is no, but here’s why. We pride ourselves in giving you the best bang for your buck. We are one of the most affordable programs, offering the highest quality content and technologies. We’d rather keep our prices low vs high prices and run regularly-occurring discounts. We may run promotions on rare occasions, but they are not typical.

What is in the Study Guides?

Our study guides are online-based and come with a plan to pass, instructional content, videos, flashcards, quizzes (practice questions with explanations as you go), and timed practice tests you unlock as you go.

The study guides are set up on a subscription plan. As a part of your subscription you’re able to access any study guide we offer within the testing series you have subscribed to. If you want to study for one test or multiple tests, you can subscribe to more than one study guide at no additional charge. You are able to cancel your subscription at any time under your profile.

I Paid for the Study Guides. How Do I Get Started?

1. Courses: Located at the top of the screen. Contains all of the study guides offered by 240 Tutoring for your selected testing series.

 

2. Navigate through the courses page to locate your exam-specific study guide. Select Enroll to add the study guide to your enrollments and begin working through the material.

 

 

3. Once you enroll in the study guide, it can be located at the top of your Courses tab with an orange Resume button or under Enrollments on your profile.

Profile: Select your name in the top right-hand corner to view your account information.

 

Enrollments: This shows the study guides you are currently enrolled in. Reach out to our team at [email protected] if you would like to restart or remove a study guide from your enrollments.

Info: Your account information is here, including your first and last name as entered, the email address associated with your account, and the date you created your account. This is where you update your email address and name if needed. Click on the pencil on the right side to edit your email address and name.

 

 

Billing: This lists your subscription, monthly billing dates, and your payment method. You can update your payment method here. It shows you when you created your account and what your next billing date is.

 

Status: This shows if your account is active or not. To cancel your account, click the cancel button. When canceled, your study guide access continues until the date your account would otherwise renew. In this example, the account renews on the 8th of the month. Canceling BEFORE the 8th gives you access until the 8th and then the account will close. Restarting your subscription (even if it was canceled) BEFORE the 8th will restart the billing process on the 8th with no lapse in study guide access. If you do nothing and leave your account active, you will continue to be billed on the 8th of the month until you choose to cancel.

Downloadable Records: Located outside the study guide. This is where you find your reports, including where to get another copy of your diagnostic (Plan to Pass) report, your transcript, your practice test report, and your certificate of completion for that study guide.

Magnifying Glass: Located inside the study guide at the top right-hand corner. This allows you to search by competency/exam standard to see just how aligned our study guide is to the real exam.

Diagnostic test: Also known as your “Plan to Pass“. Located inside your study guide in the left-hand corner. Designed to create a personalized study plan so you know exactly what to study to pass your exam! This plan will help structure your studies and focus your preparation.

Concepts: Contains three tools to ensure you master the skills needed to pass your test:

  • Instructional content
  • Flashcards
  • And quizzes.

study guides include flashcards, quizzes, and instructional content

Instructional Content: The instructional content is the backbone of our study guide. It’s the part that actually teaches you how to do everything you need to know for your test. We’ve loaded it up with instructional videos and examples to ensure you understand each concept.

240 study guide includes instructional concept

Flash Cards: Key terms and definitions you’ll need to know for your exam. These guys are super helpful when it comes to mastering vocabulary. See a term, quiz yourself on the definition, and flip it over to see if you’ve got it!

use the 240 flashcards to test your knowledge of vocabulary terms and concepts

Quizzes: Test your knowledge of what you just learned. Whether you get a question right or wrong, we’ll give you feedback to ensure you understand why an answer is correct or incorrect.

next you can take a 240 quiz

If you don’t pass the quiz on your first try, we give you a fresh form of 10 questions, so you can be confident that you can apply your knowledge to different scenarios – not just memorize it.

quizzes provide reasons for correct and incorrect answers

Practice Tests:  Quizzes are the key to unlocking your full-length practice tests. Once you’ve reviewed all the content and flashcards and passed one quiz in each concept, your first practice test will unlock. The practice test is the best indicator of how prepared you are to pass since it’s designed to replicate the real exam!

after you have taken the required quizzes you can now access the 1st practice test

How Do I Get the Most Out of My Study Guide?

We’ve got a whole article that walks you through how to use the study guide.

I’m in the Study Guide. Why Can’t I Access the Practice Test?

Each study guide contains 3 full-length, timed practice tests. The practice test contains questions not presented in other parts of the study guide. The practice test also functions as the requirement to qualify a user for the 240 Tutoring Guarantee.

The test is timed to mimic the real testing environment, and once you start the exam, it cannot be paused. There is a timer in the upper corner that will show how much time is remaining. Make sure you have the time to dedicate to it and that you are on a strong Internet connection. If you begin your Practice Test and stop mid-way, your test cannot be cleared or reset.

Only after the third practice test attempt has been completed will the answers and explanations be accessible for review. You can see the answers by selecting Review at the end of your third test attempt.

A few notes:

  • The Customer Care team cannot provide practice test answers.
  • The Customer Care team cannot manually unlock the practice test. It can only be unlocked by completing the necessary study guide percentage.
  • Once you begin a practice test attempt, the timer cannot be stopped or paused.
  • You cannot retake a practice test attempt nor can a practice test attempt be reset.

How Do I Cancel My Account?

When you log into your account, select your name in the top right-hand corner of the screen. On the drop-down menu, select “Billing”. Then under your subscriptions tab, you will need to select the blue “cancel” option next to the subscription. If you cancel in between a billing cycle, you will continue to have access to your study guides until the end of your billing cycle.

In this example, the active subscription was created on the 14th, this account will automatically be billed on the 14th of every month moving forward. If this subscription was canceled on November 1st, the user would still have access until November 14th. On November 14th, the subscription would not automatically renew and the access to the study guides would expire.

If you are unable to cancel your account on your own, please send an email to us at [email protected]. We would be happy to look into this for you!
