No Subscription and Pure Success!!!

Alan Raterink


I am just writing a quick review to express the fact that I was very pleased to finally have a learning app that lets you try it for free, then buy once. I feel like I'm going bankrupt with all the subscription software business models now, and wanted to give you guys a tip if the hat for making this affordable! It helped me tremendously with my testing this past Friday!

5 steps to a 5


This app is amazing even with just the free trial. This company has honestly been a lifesaver for me all year, so I highly recommend this company, for all of their products ARE VERY HELPFUL. If this app is doing its justice for you though, you should try the actual physical book!



The app is fantastic during the trial period of 24 hours, however after that you are locked out of the review materials. To pay the premium is 10 dollars, and honestly I feel there should be no cost to be effectively prepared for an exam. The exam itself is quite expensive, so I'm disappointed that students have to pay additionally for review materials to be successful on the exam. This is meant to help students, not to profit off of their ambitions to learn.
