Exam Study Tip:
From Brandi Ford, CIC®
(recent CIC® in the Spotlight):

"I created my own flashcards by taking pictures with my phone of all the questions...that I found to be the hardest, and every time I wanted to get on social media, I made myself look at the pictures first. The media "flash cards" became my new social media outlet!"
