“I strongly recommend eatrightPREP for future candidates preparing for the RDN exam. I used eatrightPREP as one of my primary resources and it was very helpful in preparing for the RDN exam. The three practice exams that simulate the actual exam format and evaluation of progress with each session helped me to identify areas that I needed to focus on to feel confident taking the RDN exam. I passed the RDN exam on my first try with a good score.”

“The eatrightPREP quizzes and simulation exams helped me to feel more confident walking into the RD exam. The student forum made me feel like I wasn’t studying alone and the motivational messages that popped up as my scores improved or I completed various tasks kept me going. I have already recommended eatrightPREP to other students preparing to take the RD exam and will continue to do so. I believe it contributed to my success in passing the exam.”

“eatrightPREP was so helpful for me to pass my RDN exam. Its practical tests act as a simulator for the RDN exam.”
