The Science Behind Mobile Learning:
Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about.

Take your diabetes educator studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Became a CDE today! Used this app to supplement my study regimen! Enjoyed the ease of use and daily questions.

Do not recommend

I passed the exam yesterday with an 85%. I wish I could say this app helped me get there. I usually never scored more than 40 to 60% on any of the quizzes as most of the questions have answers that are based on expired recommendations. Some of the answers listed are just wrong.
The questions are phrased strangely, usually explaining a scenario that a nurse, CDE would experience in a hospital setting.
There are much more helpful and up to date resources elsewhere.
If still compelled to purchase this app, I would recommend reviewing each question and answer for accuracy, even if scored as correct.

Great concept, BAD questions

I love the concept of this app. It’s such a great idea! I’m sure it works well for some exams, but definitely NOT the CDE exam. I just passed with a 87% but when I would take tests on the app I would consistently get 40-60%. It made me feel like I was going to fail, so I stopped using it! The questions weren’t even close to what was on the exam. I should have stuck with using ADA and AADE resources like I was going to. Those are what helped me pass the exam.
