The UNP College of Criminology reviewees who attended the June to October Criminology Review Classes for October 2011 examination are the respondents excluding those who incurred more than half attendance during review sessions. Descriptive-survey design was used and the statistical tools employed were the mean, percentage ranking, and simple correlational analysis to determine the relationship between the independent and dependent variables of this study.
