What to Expect at the Study Session
Study sessions give candidates preparing for the test a chance to discuss test topics with experienced moderators and others preparing for the test. Since each session is only three hours long, it is not possible to exhaustively cover all material for each test. It is recommended that test-takers study on their own before hand to take full advantage of the study session. Click here for test taking tips.

To enhance your experience the day of the study session, do a self-assessment of your strengths and weaknesses by using this test preparation tool. Jot down the KSAs you need work on and ask the moderator how you can best learn more about the KSA.

What to Bring to a Study Session
Paper, pencil, a calculator and a CWEA vocation study guide related to the topic. Study guides are available only to CWEA members. Log into our online service center to get your copy.
