As Directors of Jolley Test Prep, the Jolleys have established an internet-based, computer testing service. Diagnostic and Mock Board examinations are currently available for all USMLE Step and COMLEX exams, Ob/Gyn Certification, and the MCAT.
Their philosophy has always been that although they cannot make test-takers smarter, they can help them take standardized tests more smartly. They have an expectation that those taking In-training, Licensure, and Certification examinations can get a score commensurate with their abilities. Their methodical and systematic approach to test-taking ensures that with practice, it is possible to score well by training to be more thoughtful, systematic and timely in processing questions.
