"When I took the CPH exam, I was looking for a resource that would cover all of the domains. The Study Guide had succinct outlines on each domain and recapped each section with sample questions so I knew where to focus while studying."

"I earned my MPH a few years before taking the CPH exam. The Study Guide was instrumental in reminding me of the content I needed to review. It set me up for success."
