Certified Paralegal Review Course
Course Cost: Only $290! This course includes five afternoons of instructor-led review with guidance and feedback on practice essays and simulated test questions. In addition, students in this review course will not have to pay a testing center “appointment fee” if they take the exam during the special exam sessions available only to students of this class -- a savings of over $200!*
This review course will help prepare you for the Certified Paralegal (CP) exam offered by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA). The course covers all required areas of the exam. Effective with the September 2013 exam, all exam candidates take the same version of the exam.
There are two simple steps to preparing for the exam:
The review course meets at Phoenix College Downtown from 12:30-5:30 p.m. on 07/27/13, 08/03/13, 08/10/13, 08/17/13, and 08/24/13.
Students are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop so that they can participate in the in-class practice exercises. The classroom has electrical power at every seat and wireless Internet is available, although you do not need Internet access during the course.
The special exam sessions, available only to students of this course, will be held on 09/07/13 and 09/14/13. To accommodate all of the students that wish to take advantage of the special test sessions, there will be two testing periods on the test dates: One session in the morning and one session in the afternoon. The particular testing session students will be assigned to will be determined based on the order of student registration. Students should reserve the entire day on 9/07 and 9/14 for testing until they know which test session they are assigned to. The entire period of both days is necessary to complete the multi-part exam and includes breaks between sections.
Due to recent changes to the exam, the publishers have not yet had time to revise the book that is typically used. To save money, we highly recommend that students purchase the electronic version of the following e-chapters from the textbook: Civil Litigation, Contracts, Business Organizations, American Legal System, and Legal Research. The review course provides plenty of review material for Ethics, Communications, and Judgment & Analysis and we do not recommend you purchase those chapters unless you just want to.
To order, go to http://www.cengagebrain.com/shop/search/9781418031978 and order the e-chapters noted above.
The printed version of the book is: CP Review Manual, 3rd Edition, ISBN: 9781418031978. If you decide to purchase a printed version we recommend you try to find a used version to save money. The other text we recommend you obtain is: Certified Paralegal - Mock Examination and Study Guide, 4th Edition. ISBN: 9781435400269.
