What worked for me?

“The CIH Review Course benefitted me the most in two areas: 1) It held me accountable – something I personally needed in my preparation. 2) It gave me access to hundreds of realistic practice questions. I like to tell my students that sitting for the CIH exam without having taken practice exams is like lining up for a marathon without having gone running.”
