The Science Behind Mobile Learning:
Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about.

Take your credentialing studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Good for memorization, not for the test.

Purchased the ultimate version with all 700 questions about a month before my exam. The app is good if you want something you can carry with you to test your knowledge via memorization of topics. Outside of that, the app was essentially useless when it came to preparing for the CISSP. None of the questions come close to the format of the exam, most questions it is very easy to pick out 2 wrong answers right off the bat. If you got an answer wrong, the explanation was good and it told you why the other answers were incorrect. I was testing at an 85% overall score with 90+% in most of the domains. Not to mention the app is very buggy, it frequently would take forever to upload my question of the day, lag when I tried to take a custom exam, give me error messages that I had completed no questions in order to create an exam despite having taken all 700 questions and it would rarely show my completion of domain by percentage. Ironically as I moved closer to the exam, the issues with the app increased, forcing me to close the app 2-3 times to get it to load properly. If you are reading the Sybex book, this app is a good choice as it pulls the questions directly from the book. But overall, I’d say in terms of the quality presented to save your money and buy the sybex practice tests at a lower price.

Cissp test training

I am a disabled veteran with TBI. I have trouble retaining information which on one hand is excellent for IT and any job that takes into account changing tides of technology because it changes every 3 months and along with it so does the compliances, regulations and techniques to manage it. Requiring individuals in IT to research it. Yet some of these associations or organizations create their selves avenues to make money by creating tests to take to make their selves prominent and boost of look what I have. Regardless of the certification. In a couple weeks everyone forgets it. Yet for me i need it to get a job. Because ignorant companies think it makes a better employee. So this app helps me practice and remember a little longer the correct answers. Although I graduated magna cu laude in 2 IT degrees. Also created two inventions in which my professors stole and used in the companies they work for even using the same names of systems I created. These systems are currently the top rated security systems in IT! Talk about being robbed and not compensated or credited! They know As students we don't have the money to hire a lawyer so they get away with it.

Passed on the first attempt

I passed the CISSP today in 100 questions. My study materials were Eric Conrad’s CISSP Study Guide, CISSP Pocket Prep, & Cybrary’s Kelly Handerhan CISSP videos.

I would not have been ready for the test if it weren’t for the pocket prep app. The questions are different from the exam, but cover the same material so you will be ready to take the test. I definitely recommend and will recommend to my coworkers.

One area where the app can improve is to further elaborate on why the answers are wrong. I love the explanations as to why a question is right, but it is just as important to know some answers are wrong. I found that it took longer to load questions for the custom exam or quick exam as I answered all available questions, but the app never crashed so it wasn’t a major problem.
