About Bootcamp:


Overview: This highly intensive, 3-part live online instruction course will meet on the three Saturdays leading up to the exam with Professor Gabriel Necoechea, PhD. During the live sessions the exam material will be reviewed, with special focus on harder topics, common errors, and exam strategy. Professor Necoechea will guide the class through key examples and answer any particular questions you’d like to discuss. The live bootcamp sessions are recorded and hosted privately for viewing in case you miss a session or want to review a past session.
