The application of Point Contact Spectroscopy to strongly correlated materials is reviewed. Results obtained on MgB2, high Tc cuprates, heavy fermions, pnictides and spin-active interfaces are reviewed, with an emphasis on the quantitative determination of the mass enhancement factor. The method of analysis presented is particularly useful when low temperature heat capacity measurements cannot be performed due to very high superconducting critical fields.
