Catherine used Pocket Prep to study for the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s (CDR) Registered Dietitian (RD) exam. She used the app on-the-go and tapped into the study insights to help her readjust her focus in studying to where it was needed most.

After passing the RD exam, she shared her story of how Pocket Prep helped her get there.


“After not passing my first attempt at the RD exam, I wondered what else I could do to study and grasp the breadth and depth of material on the exam. Thankfully, Pocket Prep was right there to help!

Many other RDs that passed the exam before me recommended this app, so I gave it a trial run. After deciding this app could be a game-changer for me, I downloaded the full version and immediately got to work.

Pocket Prep’s real-time way of showing me my progress with mastering the different domains helped me to tailor my studying both inside and outside the app. I found myself depending on what Pocket Prep graded me at over my own judgment and readjusting my studying as needed.

There are so many things that are great about Pocket Prep: the customization of the domains to study, the instant feedback, the little details to make studying more efficient…all of it was there! But I have to say, what I love the most about Pocket Prep was the ease of using it on the go.

Whether I was out and about at a doctor’s appointment, in bed at night winding down or on my lunch hour at work, the app was right there to use when I didn’t have access to any other resources. Just having something like this be available for my use when I needed it was huge.

Come test day, I was nervous but ready to go in and tackle the exam again and came out an RD! Couldn’t have done it without Pocket Prep! If you’re an intern studying for your exam or even an intern a few months off from your exam, get this app ASAP! You’ll be so thankful you did!”
