REVIEW BY FORMER ANESTHESIOLOGY RESIDENT
"The review materials you prepared for the PTE exam helped my score TREMENDOUSLY! As a CA-3 resident I not only passed the exam, but scored in the 90th percentile! The format of the questions in your review book matched the PTE exam format very well, which made taking the test that much easier. I would definitely suggest to anyone taking the PTE exam next year that they use your TEE review book as a primary study resource." - Jake Saunders, M.D.
