What’s the Plan?

“A Goal without a Plan is just a Wish.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Did you know in 2018 that 78% of the technicians taking the EEG board exam passed? What’s the best way to make sure you are one of them for this year?

You need a plan – a detailed plan….an outline.

Start here: (https://www.abret.org/candidates/resources/handbooks/)
It’s ABRET’s Handbook for the exam.

The outline includes all the content and references for taking the board exam and it’s the detailed plan that your looking for.

As you begin your preparation, break the outline down by section…list them on your calendar and tackle them one by one.

While digital resources are very helpful for studying and flash cards may seem old-school….they are hands-down the most effective way for students to study and retain the information they are learning.
As tempted as you might be to utilize digital flashcards…don’t. It’s the act of writing them out yourself that enhances the learning.
Flashcards encourage recall and repetition…instead of simply staring at a passage or a concept on a page, they can actively improve your retention of the information.

So put together your Plan A – and if it doesn’t work out…remember the alphabet has 25 more letters.

Just for grins, I included a photo below of my cards from many years ago (but who’s counting : )
