Course Description

The Exam 6U 2021 CF Online Seminar provides comprehensive review and problem videos.  Review videos provide detailed explanations and examples of the major points in each paper.  Problem videos provide detailed explanations of a sample of questions (both original problems and past CAS problems) for most papers.  Some of the non-mathematical papers will not have a problem review video due to the nature of the content and the fact that very few past exam problems exist for them.  In addition, the seminar includes access to the CF study guide, two practice exams, and supplementary materials.  All material mentioned above is accessed within the online course.  Feel free to check out the preview version of the course by clicking on the button above!
