The Best Way To Study

What’s the best way to study for the NCLE Test? What’s the best way to pass the NCLE Test? Preparing for the NCLE can be a daunting task. The Optical Nerd NCLE Prep class is designed to provide you with explanations of the major concepts of ophthalmic optics as well as ocular anatomy and great test taking tips. In addition to explaining how problems are solved, our goal is to help you understand why the formula works and how to apply what you know in your everyday work.

A Little Practice Everyday

In addition, the Optical Nerd NCLE Prep course includes daily practice quizzes to ensure that the concepts learned in the sessions will be easier to remember. A little practice everyday is better than LOTS of practice all at once. Doing a short NCLE Practice Quiz each day will help to reinforce the learning.
