  • Test prep

    This app was not helpful at all with preparing for the test I would not recommend it.
  • Please don’t spend your money on this.

    By MilindaLuvsTonu
    I spent the money..... (and numerous hours studying)on this app. After all those hours of studying I felt confident about the exam. However, when I took the exam, there wasn’t even one question from the study app. That’s no exaggeration... NOT ONE QUESTION! I also paid for a practice exam from their site and passed it. But once again, not one question from the practice exam was on the true exam either. To sum it up, the material they sell you to prepare you for the exam does not prepare you. I truly believe they do this so you will retake the test and they get an extra $300 which is very sad.
  • Need more practice questions

    By Bjsharp
    Same questions over and over ( about 200). It helps you to see how test questions are formatted but I thought for $40 there would be at least 500 questions.
  • So frustrating

    By tech f
    I have used this app and I feel like it hasn’t helped me because I have failed the test 2 already. It is very disappointing and money wasted.
  • Decent study guide but could cover more.

    By Mr.Rictus
    I just recently took and passed the CSFA and I would say that this is a good study guide, but really I felt only a handful of the questions were covered in this app. Less than 15 of them I would say. And not really the direct word for word question, but like if you knew the question and it’s answer, AND what it’s wrong answers were, then maybe there was a question pertaining to one of them. It does hit most of the main areas that you need to study, so if you’re seeing a lot of cardiac or positioning or catheter selection or whatever type question, study in that area very thoroughly. Overall it’s not a bad guide, the app worked okay for the most part (on my iPhone 8) but you really need to supplement with some other study. Hope this helps, best of luck to you.
  • Not impressed

    By Stick to the books
    After upgrading the app and purchasing a practice exam through the website I was completely let down. The questions were no where close or similar to what was on my actual examine. I feel it didn’t even give me an idea of what would be on my exam. I would not pay for this app!
  • Unhappy customer

    By Bai_ratt
    I’m not very happy with this app. The reason is because in the middle for the test it keep kicking me out, and I have to start it over and over again. Very frustrating!!!

    After taking the CSFA exam, I’m totally disappointed! These questions did not match what were on the exam, this app did NOT fully prepare me to take the exam! I would NOT recommend this app to anyone !!! Would NOT pay to upgrade either!!!
