Leigh Tracy, RD, LDN, CDCES
The required reading and the self-study course contain a wealth of knowledge for all oncology RDNs. I learned things that I didn't know, even after 17 years. I think it's a great test of one's knowledge, especially as a pre-test to the CSO exam. The test taker will be very informed and a more knowledgeable practitioner after passing the exam. It covers all area from screening to palliation.
