“I found Boardvitals extremely useful. I feel it was my primary review and what made me feel comfortable enough to take my exam. I like that you can set up your own quiz structure with number and types of questions. I was able to take 25 question quizzes throughout my clinical or 100 questions when I had more time at home. I did the questions over and over until I had then all correct, then passed my exam!”
