Which review course is best for my child?

Your child should take the review class that corresponds to the exam he or she will be taking. The best way to know which exam your child is taking is to ask your child’s global history teacher, the chair of the history department and/or the guidance office at your child’s school.  Every school is different and therefore there is no standard answer for this.

The good news is that Regents Review can help you prepare for either or both exams. As always, our complete schedule can be found on our website –
