    I memorized all the questions and answers within a couple months. When i took the CST practice exam in our program i passed it with flying colors bc the majority of the questions from the app were on there. When it came time for the CST exam, i believe only like 3-4 questions from the app were on my exam. The questions on the exam were a lot more difficult than the ones from the app. Would i get it again? Yes, only bc it did teach me a lot of things with explanations. Some explanations were good, others just repeated the answer. Do not rely on this app to pass your exam!!
  • Incredible

    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
