P1 Test   
 
Students are encouraged to begin working on the P1 & P2 tests as soon as they feel ready. Both tests are open book and instructors are available to answer any questions about the tests. Some of the questions are written in a confusing manner, for that reason we run test review sessions throughout the season to help answer questions.
 
We recommend downloading digital copies of the tests and recording your answers on that. Instructors will assign online versions of the tests for students to complete when ready. The tests are meant to be a helpful learning tool for solidifying a student’s understanding of basic concepts.
