It’s ok....some of the questions are poorly worded and just are not well formatted questions compared to the AST test which will obviously be better worded questions than these....but it does help you study a bit I guess. Makes you think. You’d be better of with a more professional book/material to study. Sometimes apps just don’t do it like a book.
I passed my CST exam today. I probably wouldn’t have passed if not for this app. There were only about 10-15 questions from the app on the test. My test was more operating scenarios... I heard there were other CST test versions. The questions on the app did help me study out things that in turn did help. It is a pricey app though.
Not free, would be nice if they were not misleading. Looked ok, gives you 60 min trial, but I did not find anything in it that you can not just find for free online. Also it’s all user submitted from what I can see, so it has a lot of errors. I found it ran terrible, offered nothing worth the price. Used it for 15 min, deleted it.... You’ll do the same, AST website has more free stuff.
Enjoyed using this app as a reference tool but on its own it does not explain enough. I would have been great to know why the incorrect answers were wrong (i.e. what was the purpose of definition of the answers that were incorrect). I would have also loved to start all the way over especially since I paid for this app and it was free.
Thank you for having this app available for us. Free. Thank you. It is very informative and it is just in compliance with AST. Highly recommended.
Trying to review questions and the questions will not load.
This is an awesome app to use to study with right at your finger tips
I am reviewing for perioperative nursing. This app is great for studying on the go when you want to use every extra minute you have . The explanations for answers are valuable teaching tool!
This is a very helpful app. The only thing I would change is some of the question are worded poorly and make the question a bit misleading and or confusing.
Great for studying and has a lot questions that focuses on each areas that you need help with and explain the question for you when you get it wrong.
