Because of HB Kim I have passed all 4 National boards (the first time) before graduating this Friday. And I just passed my 3rd year final with A’s (and rewatched a few videos). I have the other Review videos as well and I much prefer HB Kim because he explains and gives tips on HOW to memorize rather than just reading through the materials. If I wasn’t in the mood to study, I would start watching an HB Kim video, and I kid you not, within a few minutes it would be so interesting that I couldn’t stop watching another and another. I will never forget some of the explanations and clever tips and I will be buying and studying the top 50 most popular formulas for practice as I love herbs. We all wish you had Biomed videos! Thank you, once again, forever grateful! – Ronel C.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for you lecture via the video. I am a 3rd year acupuncture student and you lecture are clarifying so so many things for me. I am understanding Chinese medicine much better now. I have wanted to master this medicine to help others, but often get frustrated with the schooling I am getting, my instructor tell me “memorize this, memorize that…doesn’t matter that you don’t understand now, you will understand later.” But the clarity never come. With you lecture the clarity, the understanding is coming!!! The way you teach it make SENSE! I am so happy that I purchased your videos, thank you for making this available. You are changing my life for the better. – Dean C.
I knew about the Handbook and Minibook even before I officially started my education of Chinese medicine, how it’s a must have for every student. After nearly three years of school, I must agree, having the Handbook is like carrying three books in front of you, the CAM, Giovanni, the Deadman and more, all in one, full of information presented in tables and charts packed with meticulous details. Now imagine all that information can be conveyed to you in a personal classroom setting, where H.B. himself ‘explains’ the ins and outs of each topic. The webinars never feel rush as H.B. takes time to address each attendee’s questions, and he always emphasizes important concepts with images, graphs, and live drawing to really enhance the learning experience. I’m still awe how he seemingly effortlessly cross references a subject with herb and combines with acupuncture points or prescription, this really enables you to fully understand and appreciate the importance of each idea. He also shares his real life clinical cases that just make you appreciate the medicine that much more. Personally, I feel these webinars helped me to connect the dots where I knew there was something missing but wasn’t exactly sure where, this is the place where I get to fill in the missing information that I could never quite get a satisfactory answer from my professors in school. If you’re a student, you know you have been there. I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart that these webinars are a ‘must-watch’ for anyone who’s in serious pursuit of this beautiful ancient medicine, yet abundantly practical in today’s society. Thank you H.B for making these spectacular videos to help all of us learn, and to heal. – Tom C.
I recently purchased your book and also your full webinar package for NCCAOM board prep, and I want to tell you that these are enormously helpful for my studies. Up until now I’ve been trying to do everything on my own, memorizing and making flashcards from source texts, and the book helps me study way more efficiently. The videos are a great companion to the book, pulling everything together and giving more life to what I have already learned. I feel for the first time that I’ll actually be able to remember all of this material! It is easier (and more fun) to learn this way. Thank you! – Catherine H.
I just wanted to thank you for providing such great and well organized material. I just finished and passed all of my NCCAOM exams and would not have been as confident and successful without your Handbook and review videos. – Joshua H.
I was a bit nervous to take my national exams since it has been a while since I graduated from acupuncture school. I didn’t even know where to start with my studies. I attended the Acupuncture Media Live Review classes, which really helped me to get focused on key study areas. The classes were fun, and I enjoyed the live format because the interaction between teacher and students helped me stay focused and alert. I felt like I absorbed so much material during those three-hour blocks of time, and yet I never felt overwhelmed by information overload. HB’s memorization tips are invaluable. I am so glad I attended the webinars — I passed all of my exams on the first attempt! – Alyssa W.
Just wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to you for the fantastic lectures, videos and material you provide to help us learn oriental medicine. I studied long and hard for the tests but know, without a doubt, it was your instruction that made the defining difference in my passing those exams. In all fairness I’ll say, my study skills are very good, I’m very disciplined and put a lot of effort into “understanding” the material I study. I do not take these tests lightly and spend months preparing for each one. But even with my diligence I still feel your instruction, tips, and pointers made all the difference in passing the exams first time around. By the way, when someone asks for advice on how/what to study for board exams my answer is always “HB Kim EVERYTHING!!” – Diane H.
