Students said about the Second Look concept:
"The Second Look (files) have been a godsend. They do a great job of both teaching and quizzing you on the relevant material. Once I complete the Second Look, I know I'm ready to quiz."

"The Second Look files are phenomenal and were an excellent way to test my
knowledge after I had studied a bit."
