  • Great!

    By TheNotchJohnson
    Great prepare!
  • Not optimized for iPhone X

    By Pilot JA
    It works on the iPhone X but app screen is smaller, it doesn't take advantage of iPhone full screen. I'll update this after checking the questions.
  • Inaccurate

    By apilottryingtopassatest
    I studied all of the question in this software, got high scores on the simulated test, but the day of my commercial written I noticed that all of the questions were different! This is not up to date.
  • Comprehensive but incomplete!

    By Ammo2awacs
    Commercial Pilot - Airplane: I enjoy the overall function once I figured out the nuances, like if you exit without saving, you resume at your last saved starting point and NOT where you left off. Frustrating detail, but manageable. IFR operations, only one question? Really? Also there are numerous incomplete test questions that force you to guess...this is why I’m reluctant to give a 2-star. Fix the database questions at minimum! As it sits I’m done with this app and going a different route...hopefully this will get corrected on the next update.
  • App needs one more mode

    By This-spuds-4u
    It would be nice if this app had a practice test that graded you on the fly.
  • Scored 85% on Commercial Rotorcraft Test Using Only ASA

    By Wolfchubb
    Today is March 3, 2018. Took my test today and passed with 85%. I answered correctly every question on the test that was similar to or word for word identical to ASAs question bank. Therefore, I'd say ASAs test bank is roughly 85% effective. This prepare did not cover dew point/lapse rate/VOR-HSI questions very well so I missed most of those. Overall this is worth the money.
  • Progress not saved and several other issues

    By Apfelmaennchen
    - I have lost my study progress multiple times by now which is super frustrating if in the middle of a long section where I want to be sure I saw every question at least once I switch to another app and then back to this app and it sometimes jumps back to the main screen instead of the active study session with no “Resume” button, so progress is lost. Kicking the questions off for that question again will randomly mix them up even in study mode so I need to start from scratch. At the very least default to no mix-up of the study questions, and if some users want to study randomly then by all means give them that option as a setting. - Also, jumping back and forth between the questions and the reference material is quite awkward when there are several parameters to be kept in mind; there should be a better way of designing the app on the iPad. - The section with the explanation of the correct response is too small and oftentimes requires awkward scrolling even for short explanations. - Lastly, the graded quizzes are not being recorded so I can’t see my progress over time. Such functionality should be a given in any training software. The only reason this software gets two stars and not just one from me is that the questions are being kept up-to-date.
  • Go with a different Prep Company

    By CFI Flier
    Two years ago the questions were spot on. This time only about 5 questions were somewhat similar. Don't waste your money on this app. The question bank won't help pass you. I barely passed only because I had studied the actual material through another company's prep.
  • Questions out of Date

    By Song757
    I just took my written today and passed with an 80%. The problem was that out of the 105 questions, the vast majority were not in ASA's app. I was easily scoring in the 90s on practice teats using the app. I risked failing because of ASA. I will never use ASA prep ware again.
  • Missing test questions..

    By SamNYC4870
    I just took my commercial knowledge exam and luckily passed by a hair because I depended too much on this app. I used this app religiously as a study aid. I was getting consistently 90% and above on the practice tests on this app. To my unpleasant surprise today, the actual commercial airplane knowledge exam had many, many questions that are NOT covered by this app! I am so lucky I still passed albeit not by much. So just a warning to everyone preparing for their written... don't rely on just memorizing test questions! Good luck...
