"Great review. Detailed. High yield. Comprehensive.  I liked the online platform as it allowed me to go back and review dense sections and make clear and useful notes. Definitely, the highest yield review I did prior to last year's test. It’s a lot but worth it."
  - Dr. Todd Davis, MDS Certified Year-2021
