Not worth the price

Too expensive!!!!

Disappointed by quiz

I was impressed by the example case study enough to purchase this app for $40. Upon my first use of the full app, I discovered that the quiz was a measly 2 questions. I expected much more. If an update/upgrade to the quiz content is made, I will also update my review. I am reviewing for the OCS and expect a quality product for a $40 app.

Worth the money!

Great for students. I wish I had bought it sooner. It helps a lot with patient cases. They are very comprehensive and informative. Excellent preparation for clinical internships in PT school
