While the content was nice refresher on basic ostomy patient care and the speaker is an expert on the topic, I do not recommend purchasing this as a REVIEW COURSE for the ostomy certification exam. Not helpful for exam prep and a waste of time and money.

I agree. It would have been helpful to have the notes she was referencing.

Too many stories, not a good review for the exam. I wish I would have read the comments before purchasing. :(

Frustrated because I thought this course would help me study for the exam and there don't seem to be a lot of resources out there for studying. I am not sure how much this course actually helped. While I appreciate the course and the speaker, I wish I would've read the comments before purchasing.

Get through the beginning of lecture with all of the stories. The middle and end of lecture is awesome. She is a true expert and does a great job with the material
