This webinar is designed to help you develop a scenario-based (not memorization-based) mind-set for the computer-based Examination for Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) to enable you to apply your knowledge within the Examination context. Veteran APR Boot Camp instructors Bob Saline, APR, Fellow PRSA, and Jason Kirsch, APR, will walk through the multiple-choice format, help you analyze the Examination stems (questions) and distracters (answers), and share other strategies to increase your understanding of the multiple-choice environment. Participants should have a clear understanding of the family of knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs), and be prepared to take an active part.
You will be able to:
- Understand the scenario-based question format.
- Comprehend the multiple-choice environment.
- Get a feel for stems and distractors.
- Participate in demonstration exercises.
