Visual Veggies Software- RD Exam Prep program review
Along with the practice exam software was the "Hanging with Nutrition" program. It is a hangman-style game that helps familiarize you with vocabulary that you should expect to see on the exam. The game offers a clue and then you guess the word or phrase letter by letter. The cool thing about this is that once you solve the puzzle there is a detailed description on the topic. There is also a field where you can save your own personal notes.
We are talking almost 600 words or phrases in this software. That is a lot of hangman! Vocabulary is SO essential for passing standardized exams like the RD exam. Having a fun way to familiarize yourself with the wide range of terms that may come up is so helpful. Not to mention such a creative way to practice rather than boring old flashcards!
So now like I said...the proof is in the numbers! After spending a few days quizzing myself and working through questions I didn't know the answers to I have raised my test score to 72%. Granted that is not considered a passing score on the actual exam, but it is almost a 10% increase in just a few weeks. I am not mad about that one bit! In fact, knowing that I have this software to utilize as I get closer to taking my RD exam is extremely comforting. I am confident that with my education, my internship experiences, and this software I am going to conquer the RD exam come September!
If anyone has any questions about the software please feel free to ask. I am more than happy to brag about how awesome I think it is if you are interested in learning more about it.
Good luck to all my fellow future RDs!
