It offers concrete data that can help identify which spheres of cognition are being affected
 
Allows easier access to cognitive assessments with good efficacy in a reasonable time frame.
 
Longitudinal follow up with repeat testing sessions is also one of its strengths
 
It's a peer-reviewed test that provides results that can be used to help improve care.
 
It allows for numeric and graphic comparisons both to 'normal' scores and also previous tests of same individual.
 
It lends the examiner credence when showing the results in black and white
 
Allows a more objective cognitive assessment and the results are often not obvious on interview
 
This is a valuable tool that gives insight into current cognitive levels
 
Results are immediately available and the data can be instantly absorbed.
 
People of a wide age range are able to perform this test with minimal to no computer knowledge
 
people appreciate having a time-efficient method of evaluating their cognition.
 
It's a convenient, on-site tool that provides a snapshot with a fair level of detail pertaining to one's cognitive abilities.
 
Provides a convenient, objective, cognitive assessment at low cost.
 
It is easy to use - it can be very time savvy
 
A more objective assessment of cognitive function
 
Good tool for establishing a baseline and tracking progress.
