Merchant prefers to communicate with Client through the "Student's Primary Email Address" received in the form filled out after enrollment payment is complete.
Guarantee and Mastery
The meaning of "mastery" on this site means the Client enrolled in a course will fully understand how to read and answer questions for the CARS section, will have gained the skills the Client needs to do well, and to understand the pattern of the CARS section. However, this does not mean Client will perform well. There are many factors that contribute to a good score (independent study time, the correct way to study, sleep, exercise, controlling personal stresses, test day anxiety, and other personal matters) that the Merchant can never fully control. Merchant does not guarantee score improvement.

Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the arbitration shall take place in the largest city within 100 miles of your permanent residence.
