Lambda School is a rigorous, immersive experience. To ensure that you’re well-prepared to launch your new career in tech, we’ve designed a series of short tests or “precourse work” lessons, depending on your chosen course.
Our goal is to make Lambda School accessible to everyone who is ready to make a significant change in their lives. But Lambda School is not for everyone. It is an extreme immersive environment that requires 40+ hours every week for 9+ months (or 20+ hours for 18+ months for part-time students).
For Full Stack Web Development Applicants:
To ensure that you’ll be successful in the course, you'll be asked to take a series of short tests to measure your aptitude, personality, basic computer and typing skills. These tests should take you about an hour to complete.
After passing the aptitude tests, you’ll be invited to take a brief coding challenge designed to test your problem solving skills. It’s okay if you’ve never coded before – the challenge is open-book and we will provide resources to assist you. For Data Science and iOS Applicants:
You will be required to complete "precourse" assignments, which will take about 30 hours to complete. The precourse work will help introduce you to (or refresh you on) the basics of linear algebra, statistics, and Python. Data Science and iOS Development are extremely challenging fields and your understanding of these concepts are paramount to your success.
The assignments are designed to challenge you a little, so don’t get discouraged if you don't understand everything right away. Getting started with the fundamentals early will help you be more successful in the full Lambda School course.
Working through the precourse assignments might also help you discover that you’re not interested in the material in your chosen course. If you’d like to check out a different track, reach out to us at email@example.com
and we’ll be happy to discuss your options.You won’t be able to select a start date until after you complete the tests or precourse work, but if you’ve got a specific start date in mind, aim to complete your precourse work at least two weeks in advance.
