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 CEN studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Truly a great study tool

I previously added a comment that this app was great but it was slow and kept crashing. Since then I have gotten a new iPad and it works great, no problems! Also, I did not get an updated iPhone but had to replace mine because of battery issues and now no longer have any issues with this device either. Maybe a combo of newer device and bugs that were worked out but this is the best study app! Tons of questions, able to customize anyway I want. I love the 10 question quiz option, the question of the day, being able to choose specific content and how many questions I want to answer. I really like flagging questions I’m struggling with and being able to just study those flagged questions. This is a great app!!!!

VERY glitchy

It seems that the more questions that I complete, the worse the app gets. It is very laggy and always shutting down. It will randomly restart while I’m in the middle of a test. I have never paid $50 for an app, so I expected something that would work seamlessly. I was wrong.

In terms of the content, the questions and rationales are good. I can’t speak to whether or not it correlates with the exam, as I’m due to take it in a few days. I really am not a fan of the fact that questions were constantly repeated. There is no option to turn repeat questions on or off. This is even more irritating when you get to the end of the “800 questions” and it says that you completed all questions but actually have 200+ questions that you haven’t even seen.

Overall: content is promising but the technicalities definitely need a lot of improvement.

Content is great. App not-so-much

I echo some of the other reviewers here in that the content for the CEN is excellent and well organized. But the app itself is buggy, unreliable and often very slow. Like others I paid for the premium content but it often does not load the content or takes minutes to load. If I happen to be without an internet connection the content doesn’t load at all. I would hope that it wouldn’t have to verify my purchase every time. Additionally the exam builder is very buggy in that it will frequently not have any content on it at all. Bottom line though the app is useful and very helpful and if the app itself is tightened up this will easily be a five star product.
