At EU Training we believe in the importance of a holistic approach to exam preparation. This pilot training session is designed specifically for candidates preparing for various EU Exams who are eager to master their mindset and navigate the mental and emotional challenges of their preparation journey.

Understanding that stress can impact learning, our primary goal is to help you manage stress effectively and maintain focus during both study sessions and exams.

In this training session you will

  • Gain valuable insights from neuroscience
  • Learn an effective mindset strategy
  • Acquire real-time stress management tools
  • Receive guidance on maintaining emotional and mental health
  • By optimizing your learning and exam performance, you will also enhance your overall well-being.

The training adopts an interactive approach with live activities such as polls, demonstrations, and self-assessments to help integrate these concepts. You’ll be able to apply what you learn to enhance your study strategies and improve your overall exam preparation experience. Join us to make your preparation journey smoother and more efficient.

Thomas always responded to our questions consistently and convincingly. I found the "hands-on" part extremely useful. This is not a training but a hand-in-hand interactive workshop. You're a part of it.

How many times can I use a question? And how many times can I revise a test?

Our questions have no expiration date, your question balance has no expiration date. You can compose new tests as long as you have new questions on your account, and you can revise previous tests without any time limitation.

We created a system that helps your EU exam preparation in the best possible way:

  • After you buy an exam preparation package, you can use these questions to create new tests in any composition and language you wish.
  • Once you launch a new test, the number of questions that you put in there will be deducted from your account and you can use each question once, similarly to a test book where you mark your answer options.
  • However, as a special gift to our customers, we created a system where you can re-take any of your previously composed tests as many times as you like (you can do this by finding the test you wish to re-take via the Practice Activity block of your Dashboard).
  • You can monitor your progress via the Statistics block as well.
  • After submitting or re-taking a test, you can revise all your previous tests in Review mode which includes an option to turn off the 'Explanation' feature to further improve the revision experience.
  • Moreover, revision is not limited in any way. You may revise previous tests and questions for an unlimited period and for an unlimited number of times.

How do I buy test questions in the language I want to practice in?

When buying question packages, you are buying a quota of questions from our database and not specific questions. This means that in the Start New Test block you can choose which language(s) you want to do your practice tests in. You do not pick this up at the time of purchase.

TIP: make sure you click on the little (i) in the table on the Products tab to see how many questions we have in a particular language per test so you don’t over-purchase.
