Online learning is increasingly becoming the go-to method for students preparing for any sort of exam—from the ACT or SAT to the LSAT, as well as for the FE and PE. Students rely on the convenience, structure, and cost savings by enrolling in online courses to guide their prep. There are numerous advantages to preparing for important exams via eLearning, eTextbooks, and online instructor-led prep courses.

Many students have taken at least one college course via an online platform and are familiar with the benefits of learning from home. Taking a PPI Prep Course online allows easy access to materials and content from the comfort of their own home. By setting up a designated study space or area, students can achieve the benefits of focus and productivity associated with traditional classroom learning while saving time and money from not actually transporting to a classroom. Furthermore, taking a prep course from PPI allows students to watch a recorded lecture in case a session is missed, or they would like to rewatch it.

Online learning offers students with varied learning styles the opportunity to participate in class compared to a traditional classroom setting. PPI allows students to interact with each other and the instructor to facilitate class discussions and learning. Compared to face-to-face courses, online prep courses have proven to increase lecture retention rate. There are multiple ways for students to communicate with their instructor between forums, office hours, and email in order to receive feedback on work or ask questions.
