Learn why students rave about Acupuncture Review Classes®. With over 17 years of experience, Linda Morse is the teacher students turn to for their exams.

Just take Linda's class.  Don't muddle your mind with "should I do this?" or "how should I study that?"  Just take Dr. Morse's class and do what she says to do.  Her materials are every good adjective you can think of--- thorough, clear, interesting, creatively presented, and her method for this madness is exquisite.  You learn several things each day so your brain never gets overloaded or stuck in one mode of thinking; you have a detailed schedule that tells you to go back and review while you are learning something new, so you are not likely to forget what you studied months earlier.  And here's this...I wanted to take the Nationals as I was studying for the CALE, but Linda said, "No, take the Nationals right AFTER the CALE, you'll never be smarter than right afterwards."  So, I took the CALE and two days later took Foundations, two days after that Acupuncture & Points, two days after that, Biomed. Then I took a few weeks to study 78 new herbal formulas and then took and passed the final module- Herbology.  I could say that Linda saved me tons of money, because I only studied once for 5 tests. Plus, she is funny, plus, she actually loves this medicine and it shows,  Did I say enough?  Maybe so, but I will add that the numbers speak for themselves, right?  Five tests in one month's time and I passed them all. It's a new world that Linda has helped open for me and I will be eternally thankful.

Linda's class is so helpful. In the short period of time after graduating, there is so much on a person's mind - sometimes it can be hard to know what to do or focus on in those 3 short months before the exam. However, If you take Linda's class there will be no confusion. With her guide there is very little on the CA board exam that will surprise you. Before the test, each student is assessed with a mock test that will let you  know where you stand. If you need help, you would know during those 15 weeks - and you could do things to ensure you pass. Take the class, it will help you be confident of your passing and you'll save time!

I took Linda's class as preparation for the CALE exam.  This course should be a requirement of any TCM school concerned about their students pass rate on the licensing exams.  Linda, through years of experience, knows how to successfully study for both the CALE and National exams.  Linda will provide a detailed schedule of readings to do and topics to focus on from the outset.  She provides the structure for you, all you need to do is follow through.  This course is not a simple study guide, it is a regimented plan that will give each student the most relevant topics to study as well as the amount of time one should devote to each topic.  Linda checks on the progress each student personally throughout the process.  This is done through mock exam evaluations and class participation.  If you follow Linda's plan, you will enter the exam with confidence, this is perhaps the best thing she provides her students.  The amount of information to cover is immense and necessitates a board exam class.  You would be well advised to invest in one.  Linda's preparatory class is the one all others should be modeled after.

I graduated at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2007.  I had worked really hard throughout the program and realized this was truly my passion to help people through Chinese Medicine.I happened upon this journey in a very personal way because I watched my mom suffer and die through conventional medicine so I believe my journey to become a licensed acupuncturist is as much me living her legacy as it is my own legacy because I know that she would have wanted more choices in the area of healing than the ones she was delivered. Pacific College of Oriental Medicine was tremendous with my journey through the program.  The amount of teaching and help and mentoring was truly paramount and I am forever grateful to them for their role in my success with graduation. There was a special person that brought my success to it's final fruition in passing the California State Board Exam. Her name is Linda Morse.  She was the best kept secret when I was finishing my masters at PCOM.  I had never heard of her.  Then one day when I was working at a foot reflexology place, I ran into an acupuncturist who was possibly going to be working there and in talking to him about my challenges, he told me about Linda. He shared about how Linda and her review class made a profound difference in his passing the exam as well.  I saved her information because at the time I was on a very low income and was not ready financially to invest in the time and money it would take. Then I was finally ready.  In 2016-2017 I finally was able to take Linda's review class.  I could not believe the gift it was! It was like my eyes had been opened to a whole new world of how to study and what to study. She cared so much for my success, that I felt as if she was an angel sent from heaven.  It was as if she was in my home personally mentoring me and always being there for me as I continued to work hard in my studies.  Linda closed the gap on the distance, as she was so present and always made herself available. The key is I still had to work hard which should be expected from every student, but as a true teacher, Linda delivers! She truly taught me things I can take with me forever if I ever need to take any other exams. Linda was the key to my passing those exams.  I do not exaggerate.  I recommend every student take her review class.  It enlightened me and was truly illuminating!  I learned more about myself as well.  I truly was not sure if I would see my dreams become reality until I took Linda's class. I will forever talk about how she changed my life 10 years after graduation!  I am so grateful and thankful to Linda.  She is a real GEM!  Linda made what I thought could not be possible,  possible for me.  When others said I would not do it, she said I would and I did!  Thank you Linda for believing in me and my potential.  Linda is the type of people I want in my life!

Take Linda's class if you want to pass CALE the first time.  Her guidance about what to study vs what not to study turns a glacier of information into a small mountain.  Do what she says, do not omit what she says, study with a partner, take her mock exams, put the work into it and you'll be fine.

Dr. Linda Morse's review is comprehensive and personalized to ensure your greatest outcome. She really takes the time to get to know each and everyone one of her students so that she can help you strategize a workable plan for CALE success. Her study skills recommendations, tools and mock exams are exactly the guidance you need to be successful in attaining your license. Dr. Morse is a great mentor who genuinely cares about each and everyone of her students.

This review class greatly helped me organize the vast amount of material and guided me through studying efficiently and effectively. Dr. Morse provided excellent direction on which topics to study with particular focus. Students who follow the course schedule as well as Dr. Morse’s instructions will, by the end of the course, possess a solid foundation of knowledge and be more than prepared to pass CALE and national licensing exams."

Dr. Morse made it possible for me to stay focused and organized on what I needed to know to pass the CALE.  I was lost without her guidance and there is no way I would have passed without taking her class first.  I appreciate what I learned in school but it did not prepare me for the intensity of this exam.  I was completely devoted to her book and did not use other study methods or resources besides her class and study schedule.  The transformation over these months of preparation is intense and worth every penny. I am incredibly grateful for her knowledge and commitment to help us!"

Linda is an amazing teacher who really cares about each student passing the exams. She takes her vast wealth of knowledge and shares specific details on exactly what you need to know. Her workbook is fantastic - I wish I had it when I started TCM school! Don’t fool yourself - these exams are extremely difficult. Out of the 10,000 details I learned at school Linda cuts these down to about 4,000 that you need to know to pass. She has this wired! The weekly 'live' internet classes led by Linda definitely prepare you well and they kept me on track. With a detailed schedule on exactly what and when you need to study I would say Linda's program is a must. And she makes it fun!

Linda is absolutely amazing! She has clear, concise and has very well organized information that is all you need to master the board exams. Linda is completely dedicated to your process and will not recommend that you sit for the board exams, until you are truly ready! I was able to pass my exams in the first attempt at taking them. This offered a large relief emotionally, financially and energetically! Trust her, learn all you can from her, then become a Licensed Acupuncturist because of her!

Linda's course is a must! I could not recommend it more highly. It was absolutely crucial for passing the CALE and made the national exams feel like a breeze. Worth every penny and then some!

Could not have, in no way possible or left on my own , would I have been able to pass my exams. Her professional coaching, her insistence on staying on schedule, her support when it got tough, and ability to make such a large body of information easy to memorize was critical in passing this exam. Thank you Linda for all your support!

I absolutely appreciate all your hard work that you put into our class! Your book is concise and all that we needed to know for CALE. I wish I had gotten your book a lot sooner instead of spending money on other handbooks during school. The way you made CAM a lot more comprehensive to look at must have taken a lot of time! You were right that a lot of the exam is just pure memorization, and I am so happy that I have memorized all the tongues and pulses for formulas, and really knew all my CAM prescriptions. Thank you for the hard work you invested for the mock exams. They were a true guide to where we are at in our studying. The questions might seem a little harder than that I saw in CALE, but they served their purpose of telling me where I need to shift my focus to. Your class is fun, a lot of hard work, but worth it. Thank you, Linda!!

When it has come to the end of your MAOM program and you feel a great deal of angst because you know there's just one more LARGE hurdle to clear before you can exhale that long awaited sigh of relief - This is the class that is going to be your life-raft and map to navigate those choppy waters. Although the test itself is a mystery for everyone from year to year, this class gives you the structure and sense of depth necessary to approach each subject so that you have a clear sense of what you have mastered and what you have yet to internalize. Linda engages and supports each student in a personal way according to their individual needs and temperament. If you are on the fence about taking this class, stop hesitating, it's a MUST! Not only did I succeed in passing the exam the first time around, but so did all of my friends that were in Linda's class. It's difficult to describe just how good that feels, like resting at the end of a long journey. Thank you Linda!! It was truly a tremendous experience. Respect.

I would not be licensed had it not been for Linda's coaching. She zeroed in on where I needed to study and how to study the material so I was efficient with my time. I'm so thankful I found her and would not choose anyone else to coach me. Thank you Linda for your endless support and guidance to your students.
