Is the test included in the class?
Students will be given practice tests, quizzes, testing strategies, and homework assignments to prepare them for the exam. We do not administer the actual exam. The test must be arranged separately with a testing facility.
Do you offer a free practice exam?
We provide free practice exam links on each of our test preparation review pages. UCF Test Prep is not affiliated with these sites. These are references from the official testing organizations that administer each exam. We feel each will be beneficial in providing core concepts to students.
On the "Resources Tab" we have helpful tutorials to familiarize you with core mathematical concepts. These exercises are designed to explain concepts that you may have not seen for some time. There is an answer key to use with each exercise so you can check your answers.

Test Preparation Transfer and Refund Policy
All refund requests will be required to follow the Division of Continuing Education refund policy.
UCF Test Prep Administration will approve all transfer requests, and notify the student of the decision and any pertinent information. Instructors do not have the authority to make decisions on this policy. Notification to instructors does not constitute transfer from the class. The required UCF Test Prep Transfer Request Form must be completed and submitted for review.

1. Complete the transfer form: You, the student, must notify the Division of Continuing Education that you wish to transfer from the registered course. Download the transfer form from the UCF Test Prep website. This first step in the process is the most essential. We will consider your transfer request active on the day and time that we physically receive the signed form. Any transfer forms received outside of our regular business hours of Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM will be considered “received” on our next regular business day.
2. Payment: There is a payment required for transferring to another course. A percentage of your registration fee is applied as a credit to the new transfer course. The credit is determined based on how much of the course is remaining, and not on how many classes that you have attended or missed.
We determine the remaining time for the course from the point in time we receive the transfer form, not from the time it is dated and signed. Only class times that meet after we receive the transfer form will count as remaining course time.
The credit is applied to the current registration fee of the course being transferred to, and any remaining balance will need to be paid by the student. There is also an additional transfer fee of $50.00 (fifty dollars) that is added to your registration fee. The $50.00 transfer fee is required to be paid regardless of how much the credit is.
Transfers for LSAT and MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT will be handled on a case-by-case basis, please contact our office at 407.882.TEST (8378).
No portion of your registration fee can be applied to another DCE program or transferred to another person.
UCF Test Prep will not refund textbook purchases, nor will we supply the textbook for the transfer course.

Karen Ponder is an experienced and well-educated tutor with a BS in Education and over twelve years of teaching experience. She is very patient and encouraging. As the mother of three teenagers, (15 year old twins, currently in the IB program, and a 16 year-old son), she understands what students are facing. Karen attended The University of Tennessee at Knoxville, The University of North Carolina at Asheville, and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mars Hill College in Western NC. In 2001 she helped found ArtSpace Charter School, an arts integrated school, in Asheville, NC, serving as the Director’s Assistant. In 2007, she organized and started the Title I (tutoring) Program for ArtSpace. Karen has also spent a large portion of her professional life researching standardized tests and teaching children how to adapt their learning styles to improve their test scores. Karen says “I owe a great deal to Ms. Cynthia Tobias (Learning Styles Expert), for her mentoring and inspiration. I believe we all learn differently and the ‘trick’ is to discover how you learn best and apply that to your difficult subjects. I will offer you alternative ways to study that will help you retain information with less effort.”
