Re: Preparing for Test Outside of Regular Class Time

My sensei expects some preparation outside of regular class time, although it varies greatly. In early tests it's mostly vocabulary- knowing the name of that attacks ect. Whereas for the Shodan test I'm prepping for currently, I don't think I've even seen 1/10th of the techniques on the list taught before, although it's nothing more than advanced applications of the old basics, and a couple of us have gotten together with the videos outside of class to learn them.
