grandmaster pimp ,

The ISA is awesome!

This could be one of the best study tools I have found. I currently hold three ISA credentials and I am studying to become a board-certified master and in setting up my study outline, I came across these podcast.

You can CAST to the television, and watch the video clips, being able to see it and hear it helps me committed to memory so that I can easily reference to knowledge in my head while testing.

PLEASE KEEP THIS STILE OF PODCASTS COMING!!

I have six coworkers in my study group. We are all studying to become board-certified masters, and we’re going to be watching these repeatedly and thoroughly.
