    Let us know how you did. What did you think of the test and the pilot questions?

    ABO prep info

    I also had the Optiprofessor which I took over and over again till I had memorized the answers. I thought it was very helpful. And there were several questions that were on the test that were in there. But the most important study guide that I invested in was from
    https://www.opticaltraining.com/html.../exam_prep.asp
    Absoutly everything to pass the ABO is in here. Well worth the money!! I down loaded the cds onto my phone and listened to them over and over again during my hour commute to work. If you want to invest in anything that is it. The TOPs book is also very good and I know you can get the info to order it on Optiboard. We Opticians need to share any information we can with others in our field.. I found the most information here on Optiboard. So THANK YOU OPTIBOARD!!! for helping me futher my optical career!!!!!
