The app is simple and the practice tests helped me know specifically what I needed to study. Passed my test with flying colors thanks to study.com!
Perfect for what I needed it for! The quizzes and lessons were thorough and I got in a few practice tests before my real one.
The lessons were relevant and easy to understand. I loved that I could watch videos and use audio mode to listen while driving or doing other things.
This website was a great resource for me when I was studying for my certification tests. Study.com helped me to pass my tests, and I don't know if I could have achieved that without this resource!
Excellent content. It was directly related to my test. Study.com really did a good job at getting to the meat and potatoes of the content.
This service is fantastic! Not only did I passed all the exams I was studying for, I learned something from my studies rather than just memorizing boring facts to be lost in a brain dump later. The content, context, and multiple modes of representation they provide is highly effective and enjoyable!
If it wasn't for Study.com I would not have known exactly what it was that I needed to study. It most DEFINITELY was the reason I passed my three super challenging tests!
