  • I went into this afternoon’s CA exam with lots of confidence and I believe I did well (85-90%, is my guess). We’ll see in two weeks. I got a lot from your class, not just the test taking strategies, but I felt like I learned something. You did a great job in explaining things!



  • The test went OK. I feel like I did really well on international portion of the exam. For the state test, I didn't feel quite so good about it.  It really seemed like the questions were written to intentionally confuse you. Anyways, we'll see.

    Thanks for the great class!


  • Thanks for All the info .Got an 87 on the test and received my QAC card. I definitely will suggest this class to anyone.Jack

  • CCA International I should have passed for sure. The state was harder. I think where I lacked on the state was just the basic knowledge and understanding with in the industry. I was not nervous and felt i had a lot of preparation from the prep course. There was a lot of the same questions or basic knowledge questions from the course. I think understanding the basic knowledge of fertilizers and some of the conversation factors would have better helped me. I wouldn't have changed anything from the exam prep because I was adequately prepared from all of the readings that I had done prior. There was a lot of information for both international and state to know. 

  • I think the CCA class was very helpful. Unfortunately, I had an extremely busy work week and wasn't able to study on my own as much as I would have liked. I felt better about the international than the state. I will certainly let you know when I get my results.

  • I studied the book a day before I took my test and past first time great book. I wish they had the categories in a study guide.
