Missing a Powerscore Practice Test

Postby 727813 » Sun Jul 15, 2012 12:25 pm

I will miss the 1st class of my Powerscore course. The hotline woman told me that I can simply take it on my own in the Student Login area. I do not see anywhere on the site how that is possible. Anyone know how to do this? TIA.

I have never taken Powerscore so I cannot help you there. When does your class begin? Is it online or in-class? If you're concerned about not getting work done today, insofar as you already have your materials then look at the syllabus and just begin working. If you don't have materials use your bibles (LG Ch. 1 & 2, LR CH. 1, RC Ch.1 I'm assuming would be what the first session covers). If you do not have your class materials or the bibles then log into your "student center" and surf around for tabs the lead you to ebooks, exercises with explanations, anything that would seem reasonable to work on/drill today. Now, here's the fun part (as all the above information was to help you get something done today): Tomorrow morning call Powerscore and have someone walk you through the proper steps concerning exactly how to get to where ever it is you need to go, and pull up whatever material students in your case usually pull up, all as a result of your missed class.

Here's an example of how the all-important Monday morning call might take place:

You: "Hello..."
Her: "Powerscore student services, this is Crystal, how can I help you?"
You: "Hey Crystal, I spoke with someone Friday about having to miss my first class, and they told me I could simply login into the student center and pull up recordings of session 1 from the achieves (say whatever it is they said to you Friday). Nevertheless, I spent the weekend trying to navigate through this thing and I can't seem to find anything..."
Her: "Ohhhh I'm sorrryyy..."
You: "Yeah do you mind if we go through the process step-by-step together, this way I can get this thing up in front of you?"
Her: She'll most likely - being the reasonable one assumes her to be - say either a) "Sure, I can totally do that with you. First, log into the student center and tell me when you're there...," or b) "You know actually don't but I can transfer you to someone who does."

Or... she might say c) C is something inappropriate about how she recognizes your voice from the 800-wet-xxxx hotline number she also works at (she's paying her way through college). Somehow she recognizes your voice and asks you why you you haven't called for over a month. You respond by saying describing to her how you want real sex and fake sex is not longer a viable substitute. Then, powerscore realizes that they've hired her and immediately move to fire her, under the argument that she is not performing her responsibilities at the standard Powerscore demands from their employees. But Crystal is very smart and soon discovers that a) not only were her evaluations higher than her colleagues, but little gifts she was given by her boss--all lead her to believe that she was one of the top employees at Powerscore. Crystal knows why she was fired and moves to file a lawsuit against Powerscore. Damn. Look what you caused all because you couldn't find where to get the recording of the session you're about to miss.

Either way tomorrow's phone call is important. Make it. At work. During your lunch break. As soon as you wake up. Whenever. And stay on the phone until they help you get to where ever you need to go. It's they're job and they're more than happy to do it for you.

Lastly, the Practice Test Powerscore wants you to use it probably the same as the one Manhattan asks you to take before class 1. June 07 I think. LSAC has it for free on their website. So, on top of having work to do today, also grab this diagnostic off the internet today.

Wow. It's like, helpful, snarky, condescending, but nevertheless helpful all in one.

Also, their job. Sorry, that bothers me.

"Also, their job. Sorry, that bothers me." - Hah. Yeah. I'm also not a fan of making so many grammatical errors sometimes. Really irritated me in college and not sure how to fix it aside from just reviewing everything I write, even emails.
