How did you feel before taking the ESP Review Course? How did you feel afterward?

I was rather nervous about it as scoring well was important to me. After the Seminar I felt like I had a concrete strategy going into boards. 

Do you have any words of advice for future sonographers looking to use ESP to study for their SPI?

ESP helped me be confident and just find the right answer. The flexibility to have it at home and the anonymity of not having to have a camera on me the whole time. It is well worth it. The study materials alone were worth the price of admission.

Richie! He does a great job explaining things that make it stick so you don’t question yourself.

Any words of advice to future sonographers looking to use ESP to study for the SPI?

Take the course!! It really does help break down the important stuff you need to know and is explained so you will retain the information and not question yourself when you take the test.
