I studied from flash cards made by another company for four months before purchasing the study guide. I took the plunge when I did miserably on a practice test despite studying. I wish I hadn’t wasted my time and had gone straight for this study guide. It is very comprehensive with enough relevant content without being too dense. I’ve been out of school for two years and this was a good reminder of specific theories, medications, etc…
I read the study guide for one hour each day for a little under two months. The content section is about 250 pages, so I was able to read the book twice through taking careful notes in the margins. I passed the exam with a comfortable cushion- this guide prepared me well.
I will come back to this product line when I take the clinical exam in a few years. It was worth the cost for me!
