    They Help Review by Amazon Customer
    These cards helped me study a lot when I couldn't focus on reading chapter after chapter of the textbook. They bring up great key points that you can expand upon in the book if you don't fully understand each card. They do not provide enough material alone to pass the exams - you have to at least skim the book and understand concepts rather than just answers to questions. They're broken down into 3 colors - one for IDFX, one for IDPX, and one that covers topics found on both tests. I would definitely recommend using them to figure out where your strengths and weaknesses are so you can better utilize the book. (Posted on 1/19/2016)
