The J Co Review website quotes a study that suggests students who learn something new in a visual manner retain six times more information than those who learned by listening or reading alone. And it’s that tenet—that visual learning is most efficient—that makes the test prep company stand out. Using illustrations and narrated animations, J Co Review hopes to make the learning process more entertaining while helping students recall information more quickly during timed tests. With courses that include prep work for the MCAT and AP science classes, students can learn everything they need to feel ready to take their upcoming tests or paint masterpieces of the endocrine system.

After forms have dried, pupils will learn how to glaze their pieces to create a completed work, which is then fired inside the studio's kiln. All levels of potters are welcome, and the cost of the class includes clay and excludes a muse, which costs extra.
