Sporty's Study Buddy will prepare you for the FAA written test like no other study tool available with three modes of operation. Test material is expertly organized into categories based on subject matter and includes, questions, answers, correct answers, and detailed explanations.
• STUDY QUESTIONS BY TOPIC •
Learning Mode allows you to create custom review sessions by selecting exactly which categories you want to review. Each session randomly generates the question order, and provides instant feedback based on your answer selection. Each question also provides a detailed description as to why each answer is right or wrong. These explanations were developed by Sporty’s team of Master CFI’s, based on their experience preparing students for the Private Pilot certificate
• REVIEW QUESTION FLASHCARDS •
Flashcard mode tests your knowledge by allowing you to only see the question without the answer choices. After answering the question mentally, you can then select to show the correct answer, and self-grade your progress along the way. This is a great feature that keeps you from being distracted by incorrect answers!
• TAKE PRACTICE TESTS •
Test mode randomly generates a 60-question session from the entire database of published FAA test questions, simulating the real Private Pilot test. After answering all the questions, you’ll be given instant results, and have the option to review either all the questions, or just missed questions. Included in the review session are the same detailed explanations for why each answer is right or wrong.
After completing each test your results are saved in the app's Progress Report section, where you can review previous scores and and a detailed history of each question and answer selection. You can also pause a partially-completed session, and resume it at a later time here.
Includes the new upgraded test prep supplement (figures and legends) from the FAA, with new high-resolution images. This new supplement became effective February 10, 2014 and was updated in 2016.
Added and updated many questions and answers.
Fixed a bug where loading figures would cause an error when no internet connection is detected.
Ratings and Reviews
Great Test Prep Tool!
Just took my written and scored a 95%! Easy to use! The best thing about it was that it had the question on the top when you went to use the chart or figure so you didn’t have to go back and forth looking at the question. Save function was okay, but if you didn’t answer a question it took you back to the beginning of the test. Really a pain when you are going through all 800+ questions. Overall I would recommend this over ASA’s app. Thanks Sporty’s!
I used this to pass my written and it helped a lot. I had used a different online school but I needed something that can work without a connection and this helped.
Only recommendations are:
* Wish we had more sample test questions from the FAA. I did notice that one question from the FAA sample test is not in the study test (REIM GPS question)
* Wish progress and reviews worked across devices with iCloud
I used this app along with many other study sources. This app was my #1 study resource.
Because of this app, I scored a 97% on my written test. On the actual written test itself, I only found one question that I wasn't familiar with.
Some recommendations/notes I would advice everyone is to check if the figures in the app match your actual figures book, as the figures book in the app did not match the current figures book. Lots of questions are repeated in the section, which isn't a big complaint for me because it helped me remember the question, but could be annoying for other people.
If you want to be like me and score a 97% (or greater), I really recommend buying this app! Make sure you study EVERYTHING!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
