Students will benefit from a personalised learning experience, where they can:

  • Improve their understanding through a variety of practice activities including; revision flashcards, e-book reading assignments, short answer questions, audio downloads and video cases.
  • Measure their progress with a follow-up ‘post-test’ that ensures they have mastered key learning objectives – and gives them the confidence to move on to the next chapter.
