How To Get the Most Out of the 240 Tutoring Study Guides

Blackboard Teaching vectors

Congratulations! You might not realize it, but you’ve taken one of the most important steps in your teaching career by using the 240 Tutoring Study Guide.

You might be feeling overwhelmed by everything you have to study, anxious about what happens if you fail, or confused about where exactly to start.

We are invested in your success and want you to get the most you can out of our guides. We recommend you follow these steps to get started with our study guides. And if for some reason you’re reading this and haven’t subscribed yet, it’s time to get started.

How To Get the Most Out of Your 240 Tutoring Study Guide

The standards for every exam cover a LOT of material. But the team of experts at 240 has studied them and determined what is most important to know in each area. 

We present the study information to you in the form of concepts.

Once you access the study guide, you’ll see that your study guide is organized as a list of key concepts from your exam.

We are here to explain how to use your study guide, starting with what you need to study most, and how we guarantee you’ll pass. Let’s get to it! 

Taking Diagnostic Assessment

access the 240 tutoring diagnostic test

We call it your plan to pass – because it gives your study guide all the info it needs about your individual performance to create your personalized study plan.

answer diagnostic test questions to unlock plan to pass

After you take the assessment, the concepts on your guide will be shuffled into a custom order of priority for you.

your plan to pass is organized by priority

What’s at the top is your highest priority – studying these will make the most significant difference in boosting your score.

So starting at the top and working your way down is the most efficient use of your time.

start from the top and work your way down with you plan to pass

In each concept, you’ll find 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

Next, you’ve got flash cards.

These guys are super helpful when it comes to mastering vocabulary.

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

See a term, quiz yourself on the definition, and flip it over to see if you’ve got it!

Quizzes

Then you’re ready to take a quiz.

next you can take a 240 quiz

Whether you get a question right or wrong, we’ll give you feedback to ensure you understand why an answer is correct or incorrect.

quizzes provide reasons for correct and incorrect answers

And here’s the cool part – 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.

Practice Tests

Now, this is really important to know as you complete your study guide: 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.

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

It’s great that you can access it quickly because 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’ve taken the first practice test, make sure to review your practice test report.

Pay close attention to your performance scores in each concept, noting the areas where you scored lowest.

This way, you can go back and review the content and flashcards in those specific areas.

use the practice test report to further diagnose your strengths and weaknesses

We know this is the best way to study – to go back and do a little review before taking another stab at the test.

in order to take the next practice test you must complete the next set of quizzes

And that’s why you’ll need to pass another quiz from each concept to unlock practice test 2.

Finally, you’ll do the same thing to unlock practice test 3. Pass one more quiz on each concept.

240 Money Back Guarantee

Remember when I said we guarantee you’ll pass?

Well, if you score 90% or higher on one practice test, but you fail your real exam, you qualify for our money-back guarantee!

There you have it! Now I have just a few more tips before you go.

Test-Taking Strategies

Of course, you need to know the material to answer questions correctly on exam day, but it is also extremely helpful to know key test-taking strategies.

Be sure to check out the Study & Test Taking Strategies button on the side of your study guide.

the study guide also include test taking strategies

Here we give you the tools you need to study effectively and a plan of attack for answering any test question you’re given

test taking strategies include videos

Did you notice that the concepts have a little gray heading above each one of them? That’s the section or big area, they fall under.

each concept belongs to a section

If you struggle with a particular concept, you can always return to the default order and spend some extra time on all the interrelated content within that section.

Next Step Tool Bar
