"Stephanie's [TEP Prep] course really prepared for me for what to expect on the test, how to study for it, and alleviated my fears. I thought it was helpful to take a mock test using an old-school scantron. Thanks, Stephanie, for your enthusiasm and cheerleading from the sidelines. I felt more confident going in and felt this put me a step ahead for passing the exam the first time around. And I did!"
