Just what I needed !

I’ve been looking for a podcast to listen to while I’m driving around so I can keep myself thinking ABA and studying so I’m ready to pass my exams and BCaBA exam.. thank you for filling the gap! This is exactly what I was looking for

Amazing and helpful

This has really helped me out. I take mock exams which helps me find my problem areas and then I can listen to the pod cast to help explain my missing areas that I could quite grasp on Cooper.
