Customer Reviews

So frustrating... Technical issues!!!

I purchased edition 4 a while back and have been reviewing the questions complete with notes, etc. (I had a system in place to review for my boards in two weeks). Today I opted to pay for the ed. 5 questions which were displayed in the app alongside the ed. 4 questions. When I opened the app all the ed. 4 questions are missing! I can find the ones I favorited (or wrote notes on, I'm hoping) but the rest are nowhere to be found... Please fix this!!!

On another note, a LOT of the questions in edition 5 are duplicates from edition 4. Not sure what it was I was paying for when I bought 5.

Shuffle feature failure

After already purchasing the questions ~1 year ago, I shuffled the questions today on my iPad and was prompted to buy set II for $80, which I did. Everything seemed to be working, so I tried the app on my phone. Again, when I tried to shuffle the questions I was prompted to pay $50 for question set III. Everything seemed to be working on my ups for now, but how many question sets do I need to buy before I can randomize?

Great question bank, but some technical glitches

Great question bank for studying for the Anesthesia ITE and board exams. However, there does appear to be some broken code in the app that forces you to rebuy the entire question bank when you try to Shuffle All Questions (hopefully just a bug otherwise that would be very shady business on Elselvier's part). BUT! I have discovered a work around for the bug:

Work around for shuffle problem - if you select "Select volumes to shuffle", you can select as many volumes as you want (you can even select the entire question bank) and shuffle them without having to purchase the questions again.

I hope Elselvier can get their act together, but in the meantime I hope this helps people.
