Loren is amazing and it’s always such a pleasure to work with her. Her help In the form of an actionable plan [and encouragement] helped me pass my board exam.
I have mentioned what you have done for me to a lot of people along the way. Without your program I wouldn’t be where I am today. I finished residency and now I’m practicing family medicine with my father just like I always dreamed!
Loved your test prep and personalized guidance! Made test prep and succeeding so tangible and accessible. Literally changed my life and boosted my confidence.
At a time in my life when it was so hard to prioritize studying, LAS helped me do so while still allowing flexibility when needed. Really enjoyed the accountability that LAS provided.
Great service. Helped me score well on my anesthesia board exam! Will recommend.
LAS was instrumental in my success as a physician and during my training. Board exams are flawed in that they cater to a one size fit all model. LAS helped level the playing field.
An outstanding program with fantastic teachers. They truly go above and beyond. Would highly recommend.
Thanks so much to my study coach - he has helped me in more ways than I can count.
Excellent service, has certainly offered insight into my problems and specifics on how to tackle them, if not which services to seek for additional support. I'm glad your services are available to us as part of the College of Medicine at UIC.
Thank you so much Loren Deutsch. She has been my coach since medical school. There is no shame in wanting to get better, and she has helped me do that. USMLE Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 and now the board certifying exam. She has been with me every step of the day, providing clarity in terms of studying strategies amidst my chaotic life. For my other colleagues or anyone doing standardized tests, I cannot recommend her and her business highly enough.

Yes! There is a significant memorial benefit associated with recall practice and spaced repetition. In other words, when practice questions are used and re-used (with some parameters) test-takers will remember information more accurately and efficiently and achieve at higher levels. This phenomenon is referred to as the testing effect.
