Amazing app

I love the concept of an app that helps you get your certification. If I wasn’t home I could still learn and practice without any trouble. The lessons are well made and easy to understand! I liked how quick they responded when I emailed them, they truly care about their customers!

Good App

Is a great app for reviewing and learning what you need to know to work in a restaurant environment and it’s very easy to obtain your certification with it.

Didn’t help much

Good concept, but maybe 2 of their 400+ prep questions were on the actual exam. I spent hours and hours using the app for test prep and worked through every single question. Not sure how they say they have the most common questions. Maybe others have had better luck.
