"Just wanted to let you know that I passed the CAE exam! Thank you VSAE study group! It was invaluable to me and I don’t think I would have passed without joining the group. I learned best practices and tips for the types of questions on the exam and organizing my studying. I also made some great new professional friends and connections. Thanks!!"
