    Very Helpful Review by Corey
    The wide range in the questions asked within a single chapter/topic is helpful. Questions cover specific items that you need to know as well as test on general concepts. I also found the answers to the problems, which provide reasoning for why other answers would not have been correct to be extremely helpful (Posted on 12/5/2019)

    Great product to pass. Review by Kyle
    I liked both the 4.0 and 5.0 study guides. 5.0 was more convenient having one study guide. Very helpful. (Posted on 12/5/2019)

    Nice mix of question types. I can complete quizzes quickly. Perhaps offering several short quizzes for each topic might be an improvement. (Posted on 12/5/2019)
