Review for SPEC
Dr. Gold holds a three day class for the SPEC twice each year prior to the June and December exams. This intensive program is planned to be held in Boca Raton, Florida. With your early registration for this class, notes will be sent to you with the recommendation that you study these before arriving as there is much material to cover in the brief time allowed.

For additional assistance, and as it is available, if you would like to attend classes in more than one location to get the benefit of a repetition of the material you may do so during the same exam session at no charge. We suggest calling the office for help in scheduling.

Schedule and Venue
When we receive your registration, we will email you the detailed schedule for the classes with the site of the classes.
