The Exam Review is a test prep course, not a basic course. You should not be sitting for a board exam if you have
limited knowledge. Thus, consider purchasing Bernie's fundamental video courses as a supplement
before or together with the review. See below. Fundamental courses are not a substitute for exam.These cover the basics
but as an advantage you can watch over and over.Fundamental courses are like Bernie's night classes
with Bernie lecturing. You follow a power point outline with slides. Each has a self assessment examination with
answers...plus other helpful materials.
Fundamental courses are as follows: I seriously recommend one or more of the video courses (along or in conjunction
with the Review) if you are lacking knowledge...for example in Contact lenses. Take nothing for granted...even the optical.
Fundamentals of Optics $175
Ocular Anatomy & Physiology $175
Fundamentals of Contact Lenses $175 All three ordered at the same time
$425 + $20 s/h = $445.
Any Two $330 + $20 s/h = $350 Individually $175 + $20 s/h
Optical & Contact Lens Formulas $ 95 + $20 s/h = $115 (Separate course) (A video
The Exam Review is a course you must attend in person, is not on video and no recording ls allowed.
