New! Easy CDL Hazardous Materials Endorsement Review

If you've got an iPhone, iTouch or iPad, check out our latest app:  BUMPER TO BUMPER ® Easy CDL Hazardous Materials Endorsement Review. Our first app was so well received (it got four and five stars from users), we decided to do another. We heard that applicants for the Haz Mat Endorsement are especially nervous about that written test.  The Easy CDL Haz Mat app is a great test prep aid. Nine "lectures" cover the information that endorsement applicants must know and the audio feature makes reading more enjoyable. Over 200 multiple-choice test questions give the student lots of practice. There's even a bonus Glossary of haz mat terms.

Look for the Easy CDL Haz Mat app and our first app, BUMPERTOBUMPER® Easy CDL, in the iTunes store or go to Study By App on the Internet. We'd love to hear your reactions (one reviewer called our first app "awesome"). You can also leave your comments right on the iTunes Easy CDL pages. And yes, we plan to do a third app before the year is out.
