Pros

Affordable, Positive environment

Cons

Own paced - teach self from text.

Other comments

It is a self learning program. There is a text (either a hard copy or electronic) and is supplemented with video lessons. There are also virtual "study session" conducted a couple times a week (these are optional). I think they now offer a program that includes remote classroom learning too.

Study the recommendations and use flash cards. Focus, I passed the exam in less than 2 months using a very targeted method of studying. It worked, but was challenging.

Online; you studied as much as you can/want at any given time.It's all online reading, reviewing, and testing. As stated earlier, it's all very high-quality material and I feel like it's a great, honest supplement to my training work with children in schools.
