In our last article at How To Pass The EPPP Exam Without Even Trying! we continued our discussion of the types of EPPP study materials available, and in particular, the use of commercially available EPPP test preparation materials. I discussed another popular commercially available EPPP study program, the Academic Review program (AR). Today, I continue our discussion of commercially available EPPP study materials by reviewing the PsychPrep program.
PsychPrep EPPP Study Materials
The PsychPrep EPPP program is somewhat newer than either the The Association for Advanced Training in the Behavioral Sciences program (AATBS) , or the Academic Review program. The PsychPrep program, like the AATBS program, hails from California.
Similar to the other programs reviewed, the PsychPrep program is a very popular EPPP preparation program. The PsychPrep program offers four different packages of study materials, as well as the option to purchase individual preparation materials. The PsychPrep packages include some, or all, of the following: one comprehensive study volume of written psychology material covering all the domains on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology, a 14 day live in person seminar on psychology content, 34 audio CDs version of the 14 day seminar, five online EPPP practice tests, online quizzes, online EPPP workshop questions, two day weekend workshop on the test's content and test taking strategies, and lastly, a home version of the weekend workshop. Be aware that, like the AATBS program and the AR program, access to the PsychPrep online tests and online materials are time and frequency limited. That is, you may only use the practice exams, workshop questions, and quizzes a limited number of times within a specified time period. To get an idea of what the EPPP questions on the practice tests are like, you definitely want to visit the PsychPrep website where they offer access to free EPPP sample questions online.
The PsychPrep EPPP preparation program is unique in that all of the written materials for the test content are contained in one volume of text, not in multiple volumes as in other programs. The PsychPrep program has the reputation of being the most concise EPPP preparation program. It attempts to cover only the material that you need to learn to pass the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology, rather than a exhaustive review of the entire field of psychology. Many students have reported that using the PsychPrep study materials is easier, takes less time to complete, and is less anxiety provoking than the, perhaps, overly comprehensive, study materials that comprise competing test preparation programs.
