NBSTSA's Certified Surgical Technologist app is a powerful examination simulator that allows you to create customized practice tests with detailed answer explanations for every question. View your results and examination history with just a few taps. Study anywhere at any time without Internet.
The app utilizes the “spacing effect” to enhance your learning capability. You’ll space out your studying into shorter, more productive study sessions, which allow your brain to retain more information. Simply tell the app how many questions you want to take, enable the timer, and filter examination content to create the perfect study experience.

Ratings and Reviews
Waste of time and money
I spent countless hours studying on the app and felt well prepared for the CST exam. Then when it came time to take the exam NONE of the questions were actually on the exam. I wouldn’t recommend this app as a study tool. You’ll waste your time and definitely waste your money.
Some might help!! And good to know
A lot of good questions.
Just submitted my renewal application. I’m hoping this will prep me.
