  • Test taking techniques

    Love this app. I learned to read questions thoroughly and picked up on key points. Learned to problem solve the answers to get the correct answer. When reviewing my text books I am able to learn more cause I know now the type of questions that are given. You can quiz on a mixture of subjects or focus on a particular one.

    I get severe test anxiety so I wanted to be as prepared as possible for this exam. I liked the test questions, they were well rounded and gave me a ‘feel’ as to what to expect. This definitely helped because I was able to pass my CST exam the first try!! I would definitely recommend this as a tool to study from!!

  • Not challenging

    By tsaltsman
    I feel like 335 questions is not enough. I was certified 25 years ago, I hope the certification test is as simple as this app

  • Great Start

    By BlackGypsy21
    A lot of the categories have 20 or less questions and there aren't even that many categories. Took the test today and passed, this app was actually the best studying tool, most of the questions were on the test just worded a little different.
  • Not enough...

    By L7e7a7n7n7a
    All there are are 335 questions. Is it worth $40?? No way! I reaches all the questions in 3 days, and that was it, they started repeating. No new information. You could have stuck with the free app and never spent the money. Rip off.
  • It's fine

    Let's begin with the obvious. This app has everything you need to prepare for the exam to be a certified surgical technologist. But, only if it is working. The app regularly crashes and will not generate questions. It's annoying, especially when you spend $40 dollars.
