Ratings and Reviews

Pretty good

Dinging st

I liked that you can see how other people have done on the questions. I feel sometimes the explications are not very clear.
I wish I could highlight text.
There needs to be an inverse to the stared questions to help me later recognize the bad questions.

Excellent and convenient


One might hope that purchasing the hardcopy of the book for $80 or so would entitle one to free access to the app. Unfortunately this is not the case. Coughing up another $90 for the app itself was difficult to swallow initially, but I have no regrets. It is a much more convenient way to review questions due to its portability, and much more engaging due to the automatic feedback that liberates one from having to flip back to the answers after each question.

One quirk that hopefully will be fixed by the next update is that to answer a question, you have to hit "answer" at the bottom of the screen and then choose your answer from the row of A-E that appears. Really, Elsevier? The app is otherwise sleek and user friendly.

One caveat: you can use this for free across multiple devices. Just hit "buy book" when you want to install it on your second device, and don't be dissuaded by the warning that you be charged $90. If you use the SAME iTunes account as your original purchase, it will be free.

So frustrating... Technical issues!!!

Stifled Mage

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.
