COURT WRITTEN EXAM SEMINARS COMING UP:

|Subject: Seminar testimonial – I passed!! Sent: Monday, September 19, 2011 3:39 p.m.|
Thank you again for the overwhelming support you’ve given me in the transition to a new career. Below you will find my testimonial. If there’s anything else I can do to help others also pursue this career, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
“I’m writing this only a few hours after receiving my passing score of 89%! Before Joe’s seminar, I had spent countless hours gathering and collecting resources to help me study and prepare for the written exam. The more resources I found and gathered, the more lost I felt! I attended the seminar only 2 days before my exam. The seminar led me in the right direction from the get-go, within the first hour, I was able to realize what I had been doing wrong with my self-study plan all along. The information that is made available to you is targeted specifically for the exam from beginning to end. After the seminar, I no longer felt lost and confused. I knew what I needed to study and how, and I felt focused and driven. I left all the resources that I had gathered behind, and studied only from the binder that is provided at the seminar, and I can honestly say that the two days I spent studying from the binder did more for me than the three SAT books, two legal terminology books, and dozens of online resources I had gathered for months! Attend the seminar, study the material, and trust me- you WILL pass! – Martha L. Chavarin”

Hi, Joe! How are you doing? I hope great! I just wanted to thank you for coming to Fresno on 09/29/12 to offer the written examination seminar. I did the homework, went to each website, and studied after attending that seminar, and took the exam in Fresno on 11/28/12 and am very happy to report that my score was 97%!! I really appreciate the targeted studying you suggested and felt really well prepared. Thank you, also, for returning to Fresno on 12/01/12 to conduct the oral exam seminar. I thoroughly enjoyed it, have been studying, and am looking forward to taking and passing the exam in 02/13. What you offer is really necessary. Keep up the excellent work! Wish me luck! Have a happy day! Keep smiling!!

Re: California Court Interpreter Written Exam
I am writing to thank you for helping me to reach my goal of becoming a certified interpreter. I am happy to inform you that I passed my written exam with 99% score! Prior to taking the test I was nervous, but once I began the test I realized that I knew the answers from your seminar and from the workbook.
This is something I had wanted to do for a long time, but I was not sure how I could achieve it. Given that I must work to support my family, I could not afford to take prolonged courses which also were too expensive for me; but your program is different and it got me ready in less time and cost than I imagined. I honestly thank God that I was referred to your program and I have no reservations about recommending it to my bilingual friends.
Thank you and God bless!
