Descriptions


NBSTSA's Certified Surgical Technologist 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, anytime 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 Features:
- Two practice modes: simulation and study
- Automatic test saving and retrieval
- Detailed history and results reporting
- Intuitive navigation
- References to source material

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

    Had this app for about a week. My exam isn't until half a month. All of a sudden one morning the tests would not load, it just restarted the app. I looked under troubleshooting and it said reinstall the app. I did and reinstalled it but my account would not get recovered. Every time I tried to log back in, the app would just reset and reload the sign in screen. This is unbelievable for an app meant to fufill one specific function. For a $40 app, bugs like this should NOT be an issue. Now I have to create a new account and lose my progress. At least I did not have to pay again. Unbelievable indeed. Full Review

    These questions are hard! I am a surgical tech but I only do ortho! This is a lot of info for me to acquire after doing ortho for 14 years! I know I can do it but it's going to be hard! After I take the exam, I'll come back and write again. Full Review

    Not worth the money. Only 335 questions (none of which are on the actual exam.) Questions and answers are repeated in same order over and over. No options to wait to score practice tests until the end. Zero photos of instruments included. Lange Surgical Tech Review MUCH better value with more questions and more study options. Save your money on this one - way overpriced low technology app. If I could get a refund I would.... Full Review

    I was kinda screwed over by my school. My last 6 months of classes were full of interruptions and the school had my clinical coordinator doing multiple jobs outside of her job description at one time and it interfered with my class time. She did everything she could to get me prepared for the test. She got me the exam practice book and recommended this app. The combination of the two prepared me enough to make a 147 when I needed to make a 118 to pass. This app was very helpful, I must have answered over 10,000 questions on here. I was constantly doing tests. In my opinion, it's very worth it. Full Review

    I got a 110 you need a 118 to pass and all i used was this app this is a waste of money and time forget this company their money hungry. 06-29-17 Now 09-28-17 I used this app but 3 times before the test, but the main thing I did was just read the yellow book and rationales and the app didn't help at all. And I can say this with confident because I passed my test with a 130. So I still think y'all are money hungry. Like y'all don't go over the mask you shouldn't touch, or gov't agency that cancel surgeries, pic of instruments. Y'all should be ashamed of y'all selves cheating people out of their hard earn money.

    It was repetition on some questions. I had to use other aides because i wouldnt of passed the test without them. That's ok though. When i didn't have my other books it came in handy to use my phone. The ap should of been priced a little lower in price. Full Review
