What Our Students Are Saying

The Cookbook was amazing for drills and making sure I had all the mechanical skills down pat. The practice exam was a wonderful prep for the real thing, comprehensively testing almost every conceivable type of question. In fact, there were several questions on the real exam that I know I crushed because Rising Fellow had very similar questions on their problem sets/exam! On exam day I felt like I knew exactly what I was doing on 90% + of the questions, and mostly what I was doing on the other 10%. Most importantly… I passed!

You truly care about us through the products you develop

I just wanted to say thank you for the materials you offer. I recently passed Exam 8 in the fall and Exam 7 to the spring and I know your cookbooks were absolutely the deciding factor after previous unsuccessful attempts. The steps are clear and concise and often explain information that I found very confusing. Plus several questions provide a new way of asking about the material that I just felt really prepared me for the style of questions the CAS asks. I could really tell that you truly care about us through the products you develop.
