As GP Educators and CSA facilitators, we know how to pass this exam with top marks … and we did! We want to share our experience and knowledge with you. We remember how overwhelming preparing for this exam was and we will provide you with many easy to use methods to help you achieve success. We’ve coached resitting candidates who have since passed with excellent scores.
