Good Product but be careful with the updates

  • By Doug from Savannah, GA USA on Monday, October 20, 2008
  • Pros: Efficient Study Product
  • Cons: Be Careful with Updates
  • Review: I have used Test Prep for Private and IFR and it is a good product. However, I encountered a snag with the updates. First, if you update you will loose your history and have to start over in order to get the Self Study Certificate. I updated and had to start over. Two weeks later I took the test and passed but there were new questions not in the study material. I call Gleim and I needed to update again, but loosing my progress report previously, I was not about to update again. A good product but be careful.

  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: Needs updating
  • Review: There were 6 questions on the commericial exam that were not in the review questions. Most of them were about private pilot stuff and had very vague best of 3 answers will all being a little correct so hard to eliminate any answers so ultimately they were a guess. Still made a 88 on the exam so not great but still passing.

Good product overall, but don't waste money

  • By A Customer from Middleburg FL USA on Thursday, November 15, 2007
  • Pros: good practice before test
  • Cons: costs too much, considering what it does is available for free
  • Review: I only bought this cd because I couldn't get anyone to endorse me to take the written test. I needed it for the endorsement printout at the end. I still haven't found a good CFI yet. I have the book version, which was more than enough. The usefulness of this cd was in it's creation of practice tests. Although this function is also available on the internet for free. In the end, I got my endorsement to test (the only extra value of this cd), and received 99% for the score.
