Ratings and Reviews
Needs better functionality
The questions seem fine. Haven’t taken the exam so I can’t say how close they are to the real thing. However, the app is horribly designed. You are unable to go back and see a question after you have already answered it, unless you clear the statistics or “favorite” the question. If you favorite the question, it will show you what answer you originally picked even if it’s the wrong answer. There should be two modes: practice mode where you can flip through the questions and answer them or not, and test mode where it actually keeps track of your stats.
Good but Not updated frequently enough.
The cards have not been updated in 2 years. Guidelines have changed and some of the questions do not reflect those updates. For example c.diff treatment has been updated to remove metronidazole as primary form of treatment for cdiff and recurrent cdiff.
You can’t go back and review the question after the submitting your answer. That functionality would be a big help when reviewing your answer.
The cards have helped me review and test my knowledge when I don’t have time to sit down and study.
Tough, but thorough
Much harder questions than the Preparatory Book. App works well on iOS 10. I like that it links out to the literature. Would recommend.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
