I am glad my school recommended this application. I just graduated from my Graduate Program and I use this application everyday. This application is easy to use and easy to understand. I decide to go back to school to obtain my PhD in medicine having this app continues to help me with my prerequisites. I recommend this application

One word.... WOW!

I can’t believe the amount of information that this app has. Many students have to take tons of books to school and clinicals but not me! :) U-Central has infinite amounts of information that no book will ever carry at once. Do yourself a favor and get this. Very very useful.

Thank you for your kind review!

Amazing app

I'm a 1st year pediatrics resident and this app has been an amazing addition to my regular references. Harriet Lane alone is indispensable, but there's so much else on here that has enhanced my education: quick reference ebooks, journals, tables. Strongly recommend
