Instructor was great at explaining the format and how to piece apart each question. This information is invaluable. He explained everything in terms that are on level with the material and also easy to understand. This course helped me understand how to study and test better. Having sample questions was really helpful - talking about them afterward also really helped. The materials provided with the course are excellent. Would recommend to any PT grad taking the exam.
