Description

NBSTSA's Certified Surgical First Assistant app is a powerful examination simulator that allows you to create customized practice tests with detailed answer explanations for every question. View your results and examination history with just a few taps. Study anywhere at any time without Internet.

The app utilizes the “spacing effect” to enhance your learning capability. You’ll space out your studying into shorter, more productive study sessions, which allow your brain to retain more information. Simply tell the app how many questions you want to take, enable the timer, and filter examination content to create the perfect study experience.

Pocket Prep Key Features:
• Two practice modes: simulation and study
• Automatic test saving and retrieval
• Detailed history and results reporting
• Intuitive navigation
• Question of the Day access

The questions in this examination prep app were created by the NBSTSA and incorporate the same stringent and secure practices used to create the CSFA examination. Questions were written and reviewed by subject matter experts utilizing the CSFA Content Outline to ensure that only the highest quality questions are published to best prepare candidates for their CSFA examination.
