    Tips on Prep for NLE 3?

    We've come to the end of our ever-helpful NLE Prep Books from MP. Does anyone have tips to share about preparing for the NLE 3 (and up) levels other than just really knowing your stuff? Thanks!

    Hi Jess!
    My oldest two kids took 3 last year. They just did practice exams from the website, and did the practices that are available there. I remember E doing some sort of game or something that was on the website. A just did the exams. They both got gold medals. HTHs!

        Good morning Jessica,

        I asked Susan Strickland, who teaches NLE prep classes for MPOA, for her advice. In addition to taking all of the practice exams on the NLE website, Susan suggested that you and your student review the NLE syllabus, available on their website, in order to see what needs to be reviewed and what, if anything, needs to be learned. Finally, Susan still uses the 3/4 exams as preparation, though she omits some questions. Prior to the creation of the Level 3 exam, students went straight from 2 to 3/4.

        HTH!

            Jessica,
            B took NLE 3/4 Poetry last year and she is slated to take NLE 3 Prose this year (it seems they've now separated these into separate categories instead of lumping 3 and 4 together). As others have said, taking past years' tests for practice will give your guy a really good feel for this one. Also, Mrs. Strickland uses "To Be a Roman" in her NLE 3 online prep class - that is a super helpful book for covering Roman culture and everyday life - the nitpicky details kids don't get in the Forms or from FMR. :-) I snagged one fairly cheaply secondhand on Amazon. I have tried to paste the link here but I keep getting an error message. :_(

              I can't paste the Amazon link but here is the book. I'm sure that the good folks at MP are going to find a fine mess when they come back into the office in Monday and see that I've been left on the forum unattended. *cracks up laughing*
