Study Group Schedule:
SIT candidates study in their own group. Everyone is encouraged to bring books or study material and a TBPLS approved calculator. There is no formal lecture, but you will be working through problems to prepare for the NCEES exam. The group moves at whatever pace the participants set. It is a great opportunity to learn from your peers and meet people from different companies. Chances are if you're having trouble with a certain subject or problem, one of the other people in the group knows the answer and can help you with it.
TX RPLS candidates also meet in their own group and work through analytical problems. Several topics from the legal portion of the exam also come up, but the main focus of the group is the analytical portion. It tends to be harder to study for alone. Analytical problems are notoriously hard to come by, so if you have any, please bring them. Bring your TBPLS approved calculator and some colored pencils for deed sketches.
RPLS Candidates who cannot travel to DFW being from other parts of the State of Texas or other States, please let me know in advance so we can set up a WebEx conference during the study sessions.
As always, there is no charge for the groups and breakfast is provided for those who RSVP. Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, you are more than encouraged to join our online Study Groups, where you can find a lot of valuable material that will assist you with the exam.
