I started to study the app about 5 months before the CST; the app works well enough to give a minute fraction of what you need to know. The only way the app was at all helpful was reading reasons as the why an answer was correct. Personally I wouldn’t have spent the money on the app, instead I would’ve just gotten the Lange Q&A book as it goes over every possible topic and gets you to a point to ace the test. The app only made me feel prepared for a while, but the Lange book proved me wrong. I studied the Lange Q&A 7th edition two weeks before the test and all of the descriptions of the answers were on the CST.
just sat for the certification exam & 3 of these questions were on there. 3. not to mention, it’s the same questions over & over & over again on this app. don’t waste your money like I did.
I studied this app everyday and took over 180 practice tests and purchased two practice test on the website for $40 each and maybe 15 questions from the app and the practice test were on the the actual exam. I feel ripped off by this whole ordeal.
I do like this app just wish it had more question less then 400 questions for $40
This is a great app to use for practice before the NBSTSA Exam. It shows what area you need to work on in your study and also how to study for the exam.
This app had none of the questions on the exam. It cost $34 and was useless. For it to be call NBTSA it was not anything close to what was need. Update your app to what might be use on the exam or use the Lange App. It was way better and cost less.
Unfortunately, the questions on this app are not on the exam so that makes me ask, “What’s the point?” It’s a waste of money and time.
This is a terrific study App! I highly recommend this!
I thought, because the makers of this app also make the exam, that the questions would be similar. The questions from the app are on the practice exam you pay to take, but not the real exam. The questions on the test are phrased completely different than these practice questions; it seemed like completely different test makers. The app was a little helpful for some of the questions, but I am kind of disappointed that I spent $40 on study material that wasn’t even phrased similarly to the test. The test is much more complicated than these questions. The app is good for review in general, but don’t expect the questions to match the test.
This app has helped ease the stress of preparing for the actual exam. Well made
