Hello Esmond
Just wanted to let you know I passed the CDE EXAM!!! I worked hard but I have no doubt that your website gave me what I needed to pass. I would highly recommend your site to anyone studying for the CDE exam. Many many thanks to you for all your hard work, and making it affordable.

Hi Esmond,
I would like to sincerely thank you for your extremely helpful and thorough practice exams and pathology lessons. I am positive that I would not have passed had it not been for your study program. It really put me in the right mind set and gave me relevant examples of questions that did indeed appear on the exam! Thanks again! I will certainly recommend your website to anyone who is considering writing the exam.
Have a wonderful summer,

Hi Esmond Wong,
I just wanted to say thank you, I found the practice exam helpful and only wish I had found this resource sooner. I am also happy to say that I passed! The exam was hard and I wasn’t expecting to hear such good news but I am very happy and hoping to continue my education further in this area and hope that I can help others and explain diabetes the way you seem to be able to. Thank you again and I will be passing on this resource to other nurses that plan to take the exam!

Hello Esmond,
Thank you very much for all your help. I passed CDE exam 2018.
Your practice tests/ quizzes were very helpful in understanding the basic concepts.
I will refer to your website, as the New 2018 guidelines are in place and once again, my heartfelt appreciation for your hard work in helping me prepare and pass the CDE exam.
The amount you charge is indeed a very humble price for the knowledge we gain in return.
Thank you
Registered Pharmacist from Ontario

I found your website extremely helpful and there were at least a dozen questions that I came across in the exam that I know I wouldn’t have been prepared for if I hadn’t come across them in your practice exams. I’m a first time CDE examinee so I didn’t really know what to expect so it was very helpful for preparation and I’d use it again in the future.
Thanks again for a great resource!!
Registered Dietitian from British Columbia

Hi Esmond. Thanks for helping me prepare for my CDE. It has definitely increased my job satisfaction. Presently, I am more confident in my decision making, multidisciplinary collaboration, and patient education. I now host about 10 diabetes related in-services a month to nurses and allied health professionals and hoping to extend that to the patients themselves next year. You have been instrumental in my professional development and a great role model . Thanks!
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

Your website was extremely helpful. The exams were definitely worth the money. I have been a CDE since 2008- so this was my third re-certification. The exams were very high quality questions that showed me which areas I needed to improve. The explanations were very well done and helped me learn during the last week or so. I was very worried about the exam, as I had not had the same time to prepare but your website made the difference. I don’t know if I passed the exam or not but your practice exams made me comfortable writing the exam. I was panicking until I did the two practice exams.
I want to thank you very much for all the work you out into your website. I will definitely be recommending it.
Registered Pharmacist from British Columbia

Esmond,
Wanted to thank you again as I passed, and your site was a big help. Good luck making it better in the future and I’m sure I’ll be back in 5 years lol
Registered Pharmacist from Ontario

I found the exam to be pretty tough compared to when I wrote in 2008 and 2013. Having said that, your practice exams were so helpful and will definitely recommend this resource to anyone writing the exam in the future. Thank you so much!

Hello Esmond,
I’m a LPN who purchased practice examination 1 & 2. The lectures & practice examinations were really helpful to pass my CDE exam at first attempt.
Thank you so much for your great work !!!!!!

Your website was invaluable to my study process. the practice exams to help me gain more focus and understanding and I found your pathophysiology lessons very easy to understand. Thanks for putting together such a useful package of information.
Thanks again from the bottom of my heart.
Registered Nurse from Alberta

I just wrote and really am thankful that I purchased the exam !!! What a fantastic resource you have made. I actually found your practice exam and your screening / targets quizzes were more valuable them the $500 course I took through ubc ( and I did find it valuable but yours was so much more practical) thank you again
Registered Nurse from British Columbia

Hi Esmond,
I wrote to inform you that I passed the exam. Just received the letter last Friday. Thank you so much for your help! T’was all worth it. Your input has helped me a lot. I have a better understanding of the topics in diabetes as a result of your guidance and expertise. I have learned a great deal from you and
I can’t thank you enough!
May you be blessed more and be a blessing to the people around as you have been to me.
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

Hi Esmond,
I passed the exam! J Thank you for your awesome site. The questions on your practice exams were very close to the CDE questions in level of difficulty and content. I have been recommending your website. I am so grateful for your help. Very much worth the price.
Registered Nurse from British Columbia

Thanks for the screening quiz.. geez I need to brush up on that!!!
Thank you!!
Registered Nurse from Ontario

Esmond
I absolutely found the exam to very much worth the cost. I would have taken another one if was available. I feel that it helped me out very much for the exam- I will let you know if I was successful. I hope you will still be running your website if/when I re-certify in 5 years.
Registered Pharmacist from Saskatchewan

Practice examination package was really very helpful. I don’t know my result yet but your questions gave me good direction to read. I read only those topics that you included in package and I found all questions within those topics in actual exam. I had not enough time to read entire guideline. I read your three pathophysiology lectures. You used really very easy language to understand pathophysiology. Only suggestion for website improvement that I can give, If you can video record your lectures..!! I’m sure it will be more convenient and easy for exam candidates to understand concepts of diabetes management

Esmond
Firstly thank you so much for taking so much time to do this website and to make the quizes and the exam. This whole process has made me feel better going into the exam. I find i learn a lot better and retain more when im asked a question vs just memorizing something.
You seem so passionate about your job, (i totally get it so am i) to help out so many people. I’ve told some nurses writing the exam to do your study as well.
I do however feel you are charging too little. I think you have put too much work in this and you are making yourself so accessible and eventually once you get everyones feedback, you should be charging more. I don’t know of any other cde study resources out there esp this friendly and real! Im so glad you posted this on facebook otherwise i would have missed out on this amazing guide!
I think you’re so awesome! The thing i like the most is you have made this so personable and its eased my tension tremendously about writing this exam.
Thank you soooooo much
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

Hi Esmond! Thank you!
You are a genius in coming up with this site! I found the content extremely helpful. Just a couple words repeated or missing and I believe one question was repeated. Overall practice quizzes and the exam, with the explanations are excellent. I will be recommending this site. Good luck and thanks again.
Registered Nurse from Ontario

I thought it was great! You did a lot of work and I found it very helpful. I know I am not ready for the exam and wanted a good guide to shape my studying in the final weeks and it did just that. I have written the Certified Tobacco Educator and Certified Respiratory Educator exams but it was 2 and 7 years ago respectively and it helped to understand the format of these questions.
Thank you so much for your help with the exam prep. I felt it went well and I’m serious when I say that is thanks to the help you and your website gave me. Thank you for all the work and support
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

Hi Esmond I definitely found the exam helpful and yes, worth the price. Overall I thought it was very good. I’m part of a dietitian study group so I will let them know about the test. Thanks
You’re exam/Web site was the most helpful additional resource for today’s cde exam. Can’t thank you enough!!
Registered Dietitian from Ontario

Hi! Esmond I am writing my CDE exam this Saturday, and luckily came across your website today. Your practice exam has been a lifesaver (I hope anyway!) as I have been struggling to study and retain information while off on Maternity leave.
Registered Dietitian from Ontario

I am very happy to have the chance to know your web site and test me with all these questions for the exam. So, yes, it very helpful and fee is ok for me. If your Practice Examination #2 will be ready, I would have it done too. I hope that I will be able to try your quiz on screening before my exam in 2 weeks. Thanks to you, for many time you spent on this site.
Registered Nurse from Quebec

Dear Esmond!
I found the resources that you provided to be very useful I am very thankful that I bumped into your website.
So for feedback, all the content was very nicely put and easy to follow. The area I struggled was pharmacy. Lots of confusing questions. If you could include that section too like you did with pathophysiology that would be great!
And If I do know of any colleague or friend writing the CDE exam I will let them know of your website for sure. Its a valuable source if information.
Thank you so much for everything
Registered Nurse from British Columbia

Hello Esmond
I am very thankful to your practice exam tests and your hard work. You made my exam preparation easy. Your practice test cost was small amount compared to material you have provided. It’s very cost effective. And even you helped us with email questions answer very quick. So you have done more than enough to help me.
You are doing a great job. Please continue to help more Pharmacist to become CDE.
Once again thanks . I am very confident that I will pass CDE exam. 😊
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

It’s awesome! I appreciate all the hard work that you put into it so I went ahead and paid for the exam. It was a good review that really helped to increase my confidence and reminded me to read the questions thoroughly before answering…lol.
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

Yes!! found the exams package very very helpful. I bought both the exam 1 and 2 packages. The question/answer day was awesome.
Your exams were very much worth the $. I feel it prepared me well for the CDE exam. I will recommend to my colleagues. I am attending our DES chapter meeting in a couple weeks and there are new Educators attending. I will be giving them your website for sure – I had already done a printscreen of your site to handout.
Registered Nurse from British Columbia

Hello Esmond. Thank you for this. I know I have learnt lots and know where I need to focus.
Registered Dietitian from Ontario

I did find your exam very helpful and appreciate that there were many hours of work creating it. I haven’t written before therefore am very uncertain what to expect for the real one. To me it was worth the money.
Registered Nurse from Alberta

Yes, I found the practice exam very helpful. I’m just hoping that the actual CDE exam is similar in types of questions? This is the first time I am writing it, so I really don’t know what to expect. I really appreciated your comments/feedback throughout the answers in the exam. Ex) “there is always a question like this on the exam” – made me feel like the cost was worth it to get some help from someone who has written the exam before.
Registered Nurse from Alberta

Hello Esmond, I found your site easy to understand and liked your style of teaching, advising very much! Thanks
Registered Pharmacist from Ontario

I thought it was great! You did a lot of work and I found it very helpful. I know I am not ready for the exam and wanted a good guide to shape my studying in the final weeks and it did just that. I really liked your first pathophys lesson. It’s great and easy to understand. Thanks again for your help and for the work you put in! Very valuable
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

I found the Practice Examination package extremely helpful. I bought both Package 1 and Package 2 . It helped to focus on what I needed to study and the Pathophysiology write ups were excellent. It was definitely worth the money.
Registered Pharmacist from Ontario

Hi Esmond, I would like to thank for the effort you made to prepare the sample questions. I found The sample questions were very close to the questions in real exam. I believe it has a very reasonable cost.
Registered Pharmacist from Alberta

Hi Edmond,Thanks for this practice exam I found it very helpful regarding the types of questions and the hints that you provide for further study, it is very helpful to orient my learnings Compared with the high cost of the other study courses, I did not mind paying fee.
Registered Dietitian from Quebec

Hi Edmond , I really loved the site .
If I fail it’s only because I didn’t prepare in advance , but really loved
the website and the amount of work you put in it . I would definitely refer
candidates to you 100% it was well above the money I spent .
The Pathophysiology lectures were excellent and precise .
Registered Pharmacist from Ontario

Hi Esmond, I did find the examination helpful, it was worth the money.
Registered Dietitian from Alberta

I purchased both exams and they were extremely helpful in studying. Your pathology lessons were great. I found there were many questions on children in the exam. They used different food items on the exam. For example, one stick of a 2 stick Popsicle. I had studied the beyond the basics handout and i don’t recall that being an item.
Your best advice. Don’t stay changing your answers. I changed two and decided to leave hearing your words in my head. I’ve changed one to the wrong answer. I figured out on Sunday why my gut instinct was for another answer.
Your website was invaluable to my study process. If I do not pass, it will not have anything to do with the quality of your support. Thanks for all your hard work!!
Registered Nurse from Alberta

Thanks I found the exam very useful as a way to highlight areas that I need improving on. Worth the money for me as I love practice tests.
Registered Pharmacist from Ontario

Hi Esmond – I found the practice examination great – there are 2 repeat questions re insulin admin (arm/buttock/thigh) but aside from that it encompasses the cpg guidelines- thanks for doing this!!
Registered Dietitian from Alberta

I found the practice exams to be helpful and will use your service again. I
found the actual exam to be quite difficult and the questions confusing at
times. Thank you for providing a good learning experience. Fingers crossed
and hoping that I passed!
Registered Nurse from Alberta

Hi Esmond,
I just wanted to send you a big thank you! I received my certification for my CDE in the mail last week and was so stoked to see that I had passed and am now joining the diabetes team! The pathophysiology lectures are fantastic and your practise exams were really great preparation for the types of questions on the real exam.
Thanks again and take care
