Preparation and homework.
Check out the course schedule to find your classwork and homework. There is also flexibility to adjust the plan depending upon your individual needs.
In class, we'll use the sample papers for the First exam and BEC Vantage which you can download here and here. We'll also use a course book such as the First Trainer by Peter May. If you need any more practice, you can look at the First for Schools papers. Remember that you should aim to get at least 60% on each question.
