Welcome to the Weeknight Business and Finance Exam Prep Module Class. The purpose of each Module class is to prepare you for content that will be covered on the Business and Finance exam. The Instructor will guide you through the content for each Module, reviewing important concepts and reference book sections that have traditionally been on previous exams. Weeknight Module classes are hosted Monday – Thursday from 6:30pm to 9:00pm (on-campus or via Zoom) and Friday (Zoom-Only) from 4:00pm to 6:30pm (note the early start time on Fridays).
PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT need to attend the Module classes in numerical order. Each class is independent of the other and covers a specific content area of the exam.
Here is a list of the Module Classes required for your Business and Finance (BF) Exam Prep Program and the reference books to bring for each Module. There are also Modules the first half of each month that are relevant for the Contract Administration (CA) exam for our Division I (GC, BC and RC) students. We recommend that you attend the Live weeknight classes or watch the On-Demand video of each Module at least twice. Then, attempt the Module Practice Exams to measure how well you can find the answers in the reference books.
