Our Students Have Something To Say

Shane New Jersey

It was very helpful going back through a variety of topics so I could get an understanding of all the information pertaining to the exam. When going through the multiple choices, being able to explain the other options even when they were not the right answer helped me identify why they were not.

Kelly New Jersey

The explanation of certain topics were executed in a way that helped me understand material better. I felt that the questions that were given really helped since they were similar to the types of questions asked on the exam.

Morgan New Jersey

Very helpful in explaining, in detail, certain areas that I have struggled with. Also, helped simplifying some of the math questions to better understand what to focus on.
