For nearly 50 years, it’s been our mission to bring you the best exam prep courses—courses that prepare you to pass with confidence. We’ve delivered results to the millions of accountants who have passed their exams with Gleim, and throughout 2023, we’ll be enhancing our courses to ensure we help millions more.
These enhancements stem from customer feedback, guidance from professional educators, and consultations with e-learning platform experts, which bolsters our confidence in delivering successful results to you.
Let’s take a look at the first batch of improvements coming to Gleim courses on January 3.
Study units are the core building blocks of our course. Redesigned from the ground up, our goal is to give you something simple to navigate and easy to use.
If you’re unfamiliar with our study units, you can think of them like chapters in a book. Our accounting experts organize 100% coverage of exam content into study units to make it easy to learn related topics or concepts that build on one another.
Our courses are adaptive, which means they automatically adjust to what you’re doing and how well you’re doing it. The best place to see that in action is in your personalized recommendations and highlighted in the brand new proficiency gauge!
When you complete an exercise, your recommendation and the gauge will update.
Know what to tackle next in order to make progress, and refer to your new proficiency gauge to know where you stand.
Recommendations are tailored specifically by your performance to show you the most effective way forward, but you have the flexibility to choose your own path as well.
Gleim breaks your studies down into three simple steps to give you a clear sense of what you know, where to focus, and how you are progressing. The steps are:
In order to complete a study unit, you’ll need to complete enough exercises (which are any exercises in the “Measure your proficiency” section) to expose you to all of the testable topics in that study unit. You’ll also have to do well enough on each of those topics to move the needle in your proficiency gauge into the green “proficient” section.
If you’re struggling on certain questions, your recommendations will direct you to the content you should review to learn the testable topics.
We moved all of the tools you can use to supplement your studies to their own section so they’re easy to find and near at hand. The course will not direct you use any of these items specifically because they aren’t required for you to progress, but you can and should use them if you find them helpful!
In addition to rebuilding study units, we’re improving navigation between different parts of the course so you can easily find what you’re looking for and get there quickly by utilizing the helpful side menu!
The course has always guided you toward your improvement areas to save you time studying. We’re making navigation simpler and faster for the same reason: Your time is valuable.
You can now access your study planner at all times, and there’s a new section for course tutorials and help videos.
The first time you log in to your updated course, you’ll be asked if you want to take a tour of what’s changed. We definitely recommend taking a look! You’ll also now receive in-course notifications when there are new updates.
Many elements of the course also now have tooltips that help you quickly understand their benefits. They’re accessible at any time for your convenience.
We hope you’re excited for the release on January 3 and can’t wait for you to benefit from these enhancements! If you’re already studying with us, please let us know what you think. Your feedback will help shape future updates.
