  • Pretty good

    By Dinging st
    I liked that you can see how other people have done on the questions. I feel sometimes the explications are not very clear. I wish I could highlight text. There needs to be an inverse to the stared questions to help me later recognize the bad questions.

    Concise,precise focused and straight to the point app
  • So frustrating... Technical issues!!!

    By Stifled Mage
    I purchased edition 4 a while back and have been reviewing the questions complete with notes, etc. (I had a system in place to review for my boards in two weeks). Today I opted to pay for the ed. 5 questions which were displayed in the app alongside the ed. 4 questions. When I opened the app all the ed. 4 questions are missing! I can find the ones I favorited (or wrote notes on, I'm hoping) but the rest are nowhere to be found... Please fix this!!! On another note, a LOT of the questions in edition 5 are duplicates from edition 4. Not sure what it was I was paying for when I bought 5.
  • Great question bank, but some technical glitches

    By mzl2102
    Great question bank for studying for the Anesthesia ITE and board exams. However, there does appear to be some broken code in the app that forces you to rebuy the entire question bank when you try to Shuffle All Questions (hopefully just a bug otherwise that would be very shady business on Elselvier's part). BUT! I have discovered a work around for the bug: Work around for shuffle problem - if you select "Select volumes to shuffle", you can select as many volumes as you want (you can even select the entire question bank) and shuffle them without having to purchase the questions again. I hope Elselvier can get their act together, but in the meantime I hope this helps people.
  • Shuffle feature failure

    By Bobarooniey
    After already purchasing the questions ~1 year ago, I shuffled the questions today on my iPad and was prompted to buy set II for $80, which I did. Everything seemed to be working, so I tried the app on my phone. Again, when I tried to shuffle the questions I was prompted to pay $50 for question set III. Everything seemed to be working on my ups for now, but how many question sets do I need to buy before I can randomize?
  • Horribly inaccurate and self contradicting...

    By Depakote
    I've used the app previously to prepare for ITEs. I wanted the new questions so I updated from the 4th edition. They do recycle a good number of questions, but what really bothers me is that a shocking number of the answers are wrong. You will select one answer, be told the correct answer is something else only to have the explanation support your original answer. It is frustrating, confusing and not worth the money. Very disappointing.
  • 5th edition RIP OFF

    By wspitz
    After paying $23.99 for a "discounted upgrade" from the 4th edition to the 5th edition I noticed the question ARE EXACTLY THE SAME except you get only 4 additional questions in the cardiovascular section. This is an absolute rip off. If you already own the 4th edition DO NOT UPGRADE to the 5th edition.
  • Good content, but doesn't sync

    By CA1 resident
    Good app except that it doesn't sync questions between devices. Like if I do questions on my iPad it won't reflect that on my iPhone even though there is a version of this app for both the iPad and iPhone. If they could fix this the app would get 5 stars, because the content is good. Just weak on the execution....
  • Doesn't sync

    By 54xenon
    This is an app that is just the Hall question book. All questions are the same. It does not sync between devices so you're better off using a library copy or photocopying a friends book.
