PCPG Review Course Participant / Future ASBOG® Exam Candidates:
The components of this seminar are aligned with the general subject areas contained in the ASBOG® Geologist Examinations.  However, the course is not intended as a sole-source for your test preparation. It is instead a proven resource and guide for your further preparation efforts. As such, the course provides a concentrated review and a general refresher for the practicing, Professional Geologist.
     During this seminar about one hour is devoted to review a full-semester, college course. The webinars are not intended as a "How to take the Test" review.  Seminar registrants usually take this course 6 to 12 months from their intended exam date with the understanding that significant, additional preparation will be needed prior to sitting for their examination.
     We are certain that you will find the provided information helpful to your preparation, enabling you to better succeed in the ASBOG® Examinations.
