Read the Walkthrough Guides
Our Walkthrough Guides are short books packed with all the information you need to know for each NCEA external standard. We have more than 40 guides available, and all are available online for FREE.
Our Walkthrough Guides can be found on our resources page here. Choose the subject you’re looking for under the relevant level heading, and you should see a Walkthrough Guide option for each standard (along with our Cheatsheets, subject checklists and more!)
If you’d like to learn more or purchase a print copy of our Walkthrough Guides, you can find these on our store website here.
Keep track with the checklists
All the main points of a standard summarised in a tickbox. These help you organise your learning, so that you’re confident you’re covering all the necessary bases for your exams.
Our checklists can also be found on our resources page. Choose the subject you’re looking for under the relevant level heading, and you should see a checklist for each standard where one is available.
Test yourself with the Workbooks
Our Workbooks are an optional premium add-on in the StudyTime suite, designed to complement the Walkthrough Guides. Where the Guides teach the content, the Workbooks are focussed on testing the content. They include questions ranging from basic concepts to high-level examples, with tips and explanations mixed in to help you through.
If you’d like to learn more, or purchase any of our Workbooks in print, you can find them on our store website here.
Prepare using the Cheatsheets and Strategy Guides
Our cheatsheets pack some of the most crucial info you need for each exam onto 2 pages (or a single double sided sheet of paper if you want to print if off!). Our Strategy Guides and videos offer our best advice tailored right to each exam. We cover some common mistakes and thing to mentally prepare you for the exam.
These can also be found on our resources page. Choose the subject you’re looking for under the relevant level heading, and you should see a Cheatsheet and Strategy Guide for every standard where they’re available.
Trial the exam with a past paper
