How long should I spend studying every week?
This will vary depending on a number of things e.g. how fast you read. There are 52 lessons, if you complete one a week you will complete the course in a year but remember some weeks you will have to do an exam as well.
The most important thing is to be regular in doing your study. For some students two hours, once a week works whilst others may spend half an hour a day or even half a day once a fortnight. You need to find what suits you best. If you don’t study regularly you may forget what you’ve learnt in the previous lesson.
What is the most difficult section of the course?
Most students fly through module 1 (about faith and repentance) but struggle with module 2 (about baptism in water and in Holy Spirit), partly because it has 2 special assignments attached to it.
The subjects taught in module 3 (laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgement) are seldom taught in church and therefore interest causes students to speed up.
Which translation of the Bible do you recommend for this course?
Derek Prince used the NKJ but also adapted it for KJ, NIV, and NAS. If I had to choose, it would either be NIV or NKJ, the majority of students use NIV.
How are the modules are delivered?
When you enrol, you either choose to receive (and pay) for the complete course, or to receive (and pay) separate modules. In that case, initially you are only sent the first module. Towards the end of the module is an order form for module 2, which you complete and send to us when you have reached that point in your study. You will then be sent module 2. The same process applies to module 3.
