What Our Students Say About the Course
"Previous experiences with the exam from the instructors really helped me understand the exam better. Practice problems worked during class periods also were very beneficial. Instructors were excellent and provided detailed insight into health physics practical knowledge and application!"
"[instructors] organized all past part 2 exam questions by year, topic, and frequency, allowing students to strategize their own approach to studying. Their incorporation of these questions into the classes based on what we learned was an effective way of us exercising the concepts while building our confidence with Part 2"...
"The classroom experience: accountability, instructor physically present, ability to ask questions in the moment. Being able to access the PowerPoint slides [is a] valuable resource. Having the instructor solve problems on the board allowed student brains to catch up with the instructor's"
