ASA Private Pilot Prepware

Private Pilot Prepware from ASA
Now compatible with both PC and Macintosh systems!

ASA Prepware, the FAA Knowledge Exam software that has been completely rewritten to take advantage of advances in technology as well as incorporate feedback from customers over the years. As with all previous versions, users can take true-to-form practice exams and get immediate feedback on whatever test areas need more work. Tailor-made practice sessions improve performance in the areas you need to concentrate on the most to pass your test with flying colors!

Questions are supported by study guides and comprehensive explanations for correct and incorrect answers. Instructors can create pop quizzes of any length, on any subject matter, to supplement the study sessions. Each Prepware title includes all aircraft categories (airplane, rotorcraft, glider, lighter-than-air, powered parachute, weight-shift control). You tell the software which test you're preparing for, and the study sessions and practice tests are generated accordingly.

FAA Knowledge Exams Covered

  • Recreational Pilot - Airplane
  • Recreational Pilot - Helicopter
  • Recreational Pilot - Gyroplane
  • Private Pilot - Airplane
  • Private Pilot - Helicopter

Features Include:

  • Now compatible with both PC and Macintosh systems.
  • CX-2 electronic flight computer is built into the program, accessed by a click of a button during study sessions or simulated tests.
  • Make and save user notes while studying in a Notes field, for annotations and comments as you work.
  • "Google"-like search capabilities…search for a word or phrase in the entire database of questions, answers, and explanations.
  • Build a follow-up quiz from your airman test report. The FAA doesn't tell you which questions were wrong on your test—they only give you the subject matter knowledge codes. You can plug the codes into the program to create a custom post-test follow-up, which is required prior to taking your checkride.
  • Simulates the CATS testing center in screen layout, buttons, program navigation; replicates what you'll see when you take your official FAA exam.
  • You can choose to print results, or e-mail them to your ground or flight instructor to obtain endorsement to take the FAA test.
  • Built-in study guides are there at a click of a button for study sessions, with the same comprehensive text and figures found in ASA's popular Test Preps and Fast-Track Test Guides.
  • Performance history reflects individual tests, not just cumulative performance. View a performance graph depicting total score and a score for each subject, as well as review the test (shows your selected answer, the correct answer and explanation).
  • All figures are available onscreen.  The printed FAA Computer Testing Supplement (CT-8080) is sold separate.
  • Download and automatically update the database each time the FAA releases new or changed questions; also, the free email subscription service keeps you informed anytime a change is made.
  • Realistic test simulation, study and review models, detailed performance graphs, comprehensive study guides and built-in timers give you the confidence you need to ace your FAA exam. Whether you choose to simulate an actual FAA test, or study specific subjects and questions, Prepware has the tools you need.

Also included is the instructor utility, QuizMaker, to generate pop quizzes or exams using actual FAA questions. Quizzes can be of any length and on any specific or combination of subjects or subject matter knowledge codes. You can print exams, student answer sheets, and instructor master correction keys for quick grading, or save the tests so your students can take these electronically.

ASA's Prepware combines all the information applicants will find in the Test Prep Series. Prepware gives you everything you need to be confident and prepared for your FAA Knowledge Exams.

by Tony R from Dacula GA USA

Great drive-time prep
by Stephen from Houston TX USA 

Pros: Easy way to memorize while driving. Readers were great and alternated.
Cons: Although material with figures can't be covered as well, they do point out possible mistakes that can then be kept in mind.
Review: Coverage, delivery and pacing we're all excellent. Strongest area for me was on the federal regs and definitions. Completely painless. Never tired of the readers. Could listen multiple times and get something new each time. Highly recommended!

Extremely helpful
by Gary V from Dallas GA USA 

Review: Running through this over and over again is what I really needed to make it through this test...great explanations and diagrams.

Just be warned the actual test does not have the answers in this same order.

Make sure to go over every question multiple times.

by A Customer from Boerne TX USA 

Pros: To-the-Point
Cons: None
Review: Helped me get a 97% on my Private Pilot written exam. The two I missed is because I didn't read the questions carefully, no fault of the prepware. Just review the preware... and the exam answers will POP-OFF the page.

Simple and effective
by Cherokee 140 from Charlotte, NC 

Pros: Quick, Effective, A Great Tool to Supplement Your Book Study
Cons: none
Review: It's nothing fancy just the question the answers and a small explanation. It's easy to set up a large test on many subjects or a small quiz on just one, questions that use pictures have a link that opens the, for example, sectional chart, in another window. For me it's an all around link between all the books I have and it simulates the test taking atmosphere. Helps me to determine my weak areas.

Not for hot air balloon pilots
by Mike in PA from Doylestown PA USA 

Pros: I passed my test!
Cons: It would be nice if someone would sort this out for hot air balloon content.
Review: This is a nice alternative the the Private Pilot Prep book. Unfortunately, like the book, it doesn't differentiate between hot air balloon and airship questions. When you try to build a practice test or study session, you are burdened with sorting through material that actually applies to what you'll see on the test.

Excellent Study Tool
by Justin from Los Angeles, CA 

Pros: Isolating missed questions, differentiating ACFT categories, similar format to test
Cons: Have to buy another book you don't really need to get the testing supplement
Review: Prepware was a near-painless way for me to do well on the written exam. I'm a helicopter pilot, so I was very pleased that they break up the rotorcraft questions so you're not answering too many questions that don't even apply to your airframe (or will be on your test). The only downfall is that you need to buy the corresponding ASA book in order to get the "computer testing supplement" which has all the charts, graphs, etc that you need. you can get them on the program, but how are you going to measure angles and distance on your screen? A bit of money when all is said and done, but worth it.

I highly recommend this software for anyone preparing to take the FAA written.
by Louise from Salt Lake City UT USA 

Pros: Mac compatible, good price, easy to use.
Review: Great product! I have a Mac so I was really happy to find software that was compatible, it was easy to install and all the different study session subject areas were presented with clear & concise explanations. The practice tests were invaluable and just like the real thing, it made studying actually enjoyable!

Great help for FAA written
by Adam from Carlisle PA USA 

Pros: Flexible, thorough, well designed, top tool for exam prep
Review: Prepware is a great way to *test* yourself in advance the FAA exam; I still prefer books to study. Prepware lets you run through several different testing protocols, generating its own tests with random Q&A, or letting you design tests within specific knowledge areas yourself. It is pretty easy to use, and cross platform. The immediate grading is nice, and it's always gratifying to see color-coded results in the green. I think I owe a large part of my very nice FAA test score to Prepware. In addition, when I did have a tech support question, I go a response within hours.

by Dale from Roseville MN USA

Fantastic Training Tool
by Kenny Ray from Atoka TN USA 

Pros: Easy to navigate; Ability to do a quick short study session if that's all you have time for.
Cons: I haven't come across anything bad about this product.
Review: An invaluable tool for preparing for the written and for remembering things you need to know after the fact. The one thing that would make it better would to be having it linked to an item like my private pilot CD-ROM courses to go back for review of missed items.

Previous Customer Questions For ASA Private Pilot Prepware:
Ask Your Own Question
On Monday, January 21, 2013 a customer asked:
If I print out a quiz, will the software also print out the figures and charts necessary to answer the questions. ie. the VOR or ADF instruments
A: No, the figures will not be printed when you print out a quiz / study guide.  They are shown on-screen when you use it interactively, but if you are printing you have a few different options;
1.  You can print individual figures from within the software.  Select Tools | Figure Library and then select/search for the figure you wish to print.

On Tuesday, April 13, 2010 a customer asked:
is it possible to set up a practice test/quiz that just includes questions for the private pilot airplane FAA Exam? i've heard that when you set up practice questions for Private Pilot, there are other categories like Hot Air Balloon that are included. is that true? is there anyway to filter that out? i am only interested in the Private Pilot Airplane Questions.
A: Yes, absolutely.  You can setup a test for airplane, rotorcraft, glider, lighter-than-air, powered parachute, or weight-shift control.  When you choose the test, it will ONLY give you questions that are either general (apply to all tests) or for that specific aircraft category.  You can set it up to focus on specific knowledge areas such as Weather, Airspace, Systems, etc.
