How does the materials license work?

The “materials license” means that you’ll be able to use your custom-built materials as you need them.

Materials license includes:

1. Teacher Workbook
2. Student Workbook
3. Accompanying PowerPoint Lessons
4. Practice exams
5. Custom lesson plans (advanced and expert only)

All materials will be provided in digital form for you to print at your convenience. Hard copies are included in the expert package, or can be ordered separately.

When should I renew the materials license?

We recommend you begin planning your renewal at least 3 months before your materials are set to expire to avoid interrupting the test prep services that you provide your students.
