Great App, Helped alot
The app really helped me figure out where I needed to focus on my reading, basically as their disclaimer stated. This is a good addition to your study guide, but nothing beats the book and real world experience. I would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for all the support materials they can find prior to taking the test. I did find one issue wherein if the question allows for multiple selections, if you select one answer, then change it before you submit it, there is a chance that when the test gets scored, it doesn't reflect the change that you made. I plan on contacting the developer about this, otherwise, I'd rate it a 5 start like I did for the Server Essentials app.
**Important Note for the bad reviews** Read the disclaimer that was provided about the app. If you are expecting the questions in the app to appear on the actual certification exam, don't. You are going down a path of false hope. The actual exam focuses on the application of knowledge rather than just the knowledge. This app can help you identify your knowledge deficiencies and where to focus while studying the Certification Books and other materials.
This program is the worst.
I Paid for this program in hopes that coupled with my book, for the certification exam. It would help me get ready for the test.
When you take the practice exam the program will ask you questions based on information from the book. But when you take the certification it self.
NONE OF THE QUESTIONS ON IT WILL APPEAR ON THE CERT EXAM!!!. According to this program i was getting passing score of 80+ basically telling me that i knew the material on the book, and that i was ready to take the test. When I took the test, i failed it cause this program match nothing to the certification at all so it did not get me ready for it. I get's better if you try to contact apple and tell them that the application sold by them, approved by them in reference to a certification given by them did not help u pass the exam at all and that the application doesn't match their exam at all. Apple will link you to their legal website which basically tell's you that they have nothing to do with it and if you want to take the test again you have to pay for it again. Please know that if you buy this application thinking that just cause your passing it and passing the certification practice exam on it. Don't think when you get there you going to see this questions cause your not not a single question in this test got me ready for the 86 questions on the exam.
Good review tool.
This is a great review tool if you are chasing certification. Has multiple question forms, more questions than you see on one run through (giving you some questions that are the same as previous runs, and some new ones), multiple question formats, randomized ordering of answers, ertc.
An issue I've run across: it doesn't always record a changed answer. I'll pick an answer, decide another is a better answer and pick it, then finish the test to see that the question is marked wrong, with the first discarded answer still picked, and the better correct answer unselected. That's annoying.
