    I HIGHLY recommend your "Basics and Beyond" course as a primary resource for preparing for the CHT exam. I used this as my main studying source and passed the exam the first time
    I found it very helpful in studying for the CHT exam.
    Susan and Nancy- First of all, I would like to give you all a huge thanks for helping me to pass the CHT exam this year!! I used your Basics and Beyond CD as well as the "purple book" along with some other references and felt very prepared. The practice tests were also well worth the money.
