2012-2013 PACE STUDY GROUP FORMING
November 27, 2012-January 15, 2013
One of many ways that you can study for PACE is to consider participating in a Study Group. This method of study certainly has many advantages, the primary advantage being that you can learn from one another, especially regarding areas of the law in which you need more study. You can glean the knowledge of other experienced paralegals in areas in which you have less experience ~ turn your weaknesses into strengths in a fun and positive environment ~ and they can learn from you. Everyone benefits ~ helping each other in achieving their goal ~ to pass PACE.
Not only can members learn together, marshal resources, and motivate one another, but they may be able to reinforce discipline and help the members stay focused. Group study can be more interesting than studying alone, and it allows the members to share their learning experiences. The group can be a sounding board in proof that "two heads are better than one.” They bring to the table each individual member's professional and personal knowledge and experience. Moreover, the group can utilize various media formats that may be unavailable in individual study. Finally, the group is there for support before, during, and after the exam.

Registered Paralegals (RPs), in the past, have HIGHLY recommended that PACE candidates take the online review course to better prepare them to take the PACE Exam; however, this is your decision. Participating in the online course is not mandatory to take the PACE Exam.
