EXAM PREP WORKSHOPS (selected courses)

SMART's trained Peer-Assisted Learning facilitators lead a series of content review workshops focusing on core concepts from the corresponding course. Registration (via the link below) does not guarantee a spot but will help us determine materials needed. We can only seat up until the room's capacity is reached, so arrive early!
