I spent a considerable amount of time reading articles on InsNerds to gain confidence and prepare for CPCU. The study strategies helped me achieve what many of my coworkers deemed as "outrageously ambitious": completing all eight tests by the June deadline. I passed all tests on the first try, and InsNerds has truly been such a motivational influence, so thank you!
