Spring 2024 Exam-Crams
Live in PB/MB during junior/senior year!!
HOW OUR MAGIC WORKS: We have 3 experts working behind the scenes to make these exam-cram reviews as perfect as possible. (Our in-class notetakers provide us with all the information as to what will be on the exam.) We use FULL-TIME EXPERTS, not part-time tutors! We analyze Canvas materials, handouts, quizzes, in-class notes, PPT slides, and what the prof says will be on the exam. Then we carefully create an excellent exam-cram review and present it to our students in a small-group workshop format to help our students score as high as possible on their exam. We do NOT use PPT slides! We use thick black markers and white-boards. This old fashion method of learning really works. Hope to see you this semester. We are going all-out to help our students take all the top grades in the class as usual.
Be sure to visit La Jolla Shores often!
We help SDSU students (fact)
1. We offer to increase the success rates of students we work with by helping with their exam prep and homework. (fact)
2. We offer to reduce student anxiety by suggesting effective test-taking strategies and good study habits. (fact)
3. We mentor and motivate students to achieve greatness in their college years and beyond. (fact)
4. We are not affiliated with the university and we cost Sacramento essentially nothing for our incredible efforts helping their students! (fact)
5. Algebra skills and critical thinking skills of the students we are now seeing are historically low! Not sure why. The high schools are failing? The university is accepting lower skilled students? Not sure! But we continue to serve the local College Area community by getting both freshmen and transfer students up to speed on basic skills needed to excel AND helping prepare them for their exams! (fact)
A+ Review for SDSU 2024
We are the #1 College-based Exam Prep in San Diego!
One or two nights before the exam, we offer a small group, exam-cram (exam-specific) review workshop. We are experts on the exam material and we dumb it all down and spoon feed our students the exam material. Through our enrolled note-takers, we figure out everything that our students need to know to score high on their exam and we present it all to our small group at our exam-cram workshop. We are located close to campus!
The SDSU campus is beautiful!
We are dedicated to Academic Excellence in everything we do. That includes our teaching style, materials, and mentoring of our students. We encourage our students to set high goals for themselves in all aspects of their lives. "Reach for the Stars!" is an example of something we promote. We support a clean and ethical lifestyle, urging our student to stay grounded and focused on their graduation goal. We have 100's of thank-you cards!
PARENTS CAN NOW PAY! We have added a "Parents Page". It is a very popular feature. Using PayPal, your parents (or anybody) can pay for any of your reviews. Just remember to bring your ID so that we can verify that you match your PayPal name when you arrive at the review.
You don't need to have a PayPal account to use this feature, any credit card will work! Paypal just PROCESSES the card. No Paypal account is needed!
PROVEN FACT: The A+ Review students as a group perform significantly better (at alpha .05) than the students as a group that did not attend our exam-cram reviews. An SDSU grad student did their thesis on this topic to confirm this fact with extensive scientific research.
We do NOT use Powerpoint slides! We actually TEACH the material at our workshop with thick black markers on huge white boards. Its a LOT of work for us but this old fashion teaching style really works! Once again: our students LEARN IT AND EARN IT!
NOTE: GOOGLE PROBLEM: When you search on Google, it may give you links to old pages from months or years ago. Ugh! ... so make sure you the either click on our HOME PAGE and/or hit REFRESH... to get our latest page for THIS week. Lots of broken GOOGLE links we are trying to fix.
Our number one question is: How do you pay?
Answer: Use Cash, Check, or Card... just pay at the door. We take all credit and debit cards... at the door. (although parents like to pay in advance on our Parents Pay page on behalf of their child sometimes)
ADDRESS: 6784 El Cajon Blvd., San Diego, CA 92115
From the SDSU campus, head east on Montezuma Rd. to the very end of that road. Turn left. We are two blocks down on the left side, across the street from the Bank of America. We are one mile east of campus, just past Ralphs and Pep Boys.
LOCATED: 6784 El Cajon Blvd, 92115... From SDSU... go 1 mile EAST (away from beach) on Montezuma Rd. to the very end (at Ralphs), turn left. We are 1 block down on left side (directly across from Bank of America). If you ride your bike over here... just wheel it into the back of the room when you get here.
RESERVATIONS: No reservation required (usually), you can just show up at the door. Sometimes in bigger classes and also towards the end of the semester... we may fill-up. So reservations (first name, phone #) are sometimes required at that point. Just fill in your info in the boxes on the appropriate page if you wish. Also, once in a while a review time will slightly change (for example, review start-time may rarely start an hour later or something like that... we text message everyone on the list. If you are not on our list, we can't text message you!
SDSU Profs: Don't ask your prof about A+ Review (some don't like us for some reason. There are some that LIKE us, they told us this to our face! "I know your students score high on my exams which I'm fine with, but other professors as you probably know don't feel the same way") We help students LEARN the exam material VERY well. And at no cost to SDSU or the taxpayers! Amazing. Some profs seem to resent that we help their students ace their exams. Why you ask? Ask a psychologist... there are many theories. Pure politics is the top potential reason, we make Powerpoint-Profs look bad is yet another potential reason. "Why can't you actually teach us like A+ Review?!?"... makes blood boil! Don't say that to a prof! Then apparently these profs complain to the university and teacher's union... who then come after us we feel. Something like that. The bottom line is that it is best not to mention the words "A+ Review" to your profs or any administration person on the campus. (Except the student athletes and athletic programs... MANY over the years who apparently love us it seems to us. Student athletes LOVE us... they come in all the time.) Don't ask profs about A+ Review! Some profs may just lose it on the spot and shout at you! (We have many stories!). We also have recordings provided to us of profs horribly bad-mouthing us. (Seemingly damaging our professional reputation!!) It's very upsetting. But our students continue to score high on their exams (fact)... so we keep going, until someday, when the university may drive bulldozers over to our facility and smash it to the ground. With Gavin Newsom and Adela de la Torre at the steering wheel (sarcasm, parody intended). Our exam-cram workshops are just "too good" for them it appears. NO Powerpoint trash... just hardcore number crunching and learning. Never mind them... Look out for yourself and join us for 5-star exam-prep. GPA's matter. FUN FACT: The First Amendment protects both freedom of speech AND freedom of assembly without state government interference! Phew. Our Founding Fathers had us in mind! Otherwise they would have already bulldozed us into the ground. The First Amendment right of Freedom of Expression shall NOT be infringed! Period!
Air Conditioning: Our Air Conditioning is always running so bring a jacket! (No, we will not turn off the AC... always runs... even in the winter! We need the fresh, purified air being pumped into the room) "Hi, Can you turn down the A/C?" "No".
We have excellent AC equipment including a very expensive UV light filter system that kills germs and purifies the air! This same system is used in hospitals!!
Food & Drink: No smelly foods, drives us crazy. Stinks up the whole room. (So no Doritos, Fritos, Corn Nuts). Other stuff is FINE. We have a snacks table. We have a drinks fridge. We serve baked pizza!
Bring: We provide all materials. We provide pencils. Bring a calculator if you have one. TI83/84 seems to work best.
