Ratings and Reviews
No Thrills Design
Due to the no-thrills design of this app, lack of functionality and user-friendliness I am giving this app 2 stars. The app provides hundreds of questions taken from The Institutes course material quizzes. You pay $10 to unlock the questions in a course which isn’t a bad price by any means.
My main complaint is with the app’s UI, which is archaic and lacks any functionality. There is no way to sort the hundreds of questions in a course, you have to tap back or next hundreds of times to get to a question you were looking for. Also there is no way to flag your wrong questions and look at them all at once to review weak spots, again you have to click back or next through the long list of questions and manually find the ones answered incorrectly. The questions are not separated into topics by section which is frustrating.
ADVICE: I also purchase the The Institutes recommended CPCU course material for each class (the package with the most content). I would say this app shouldn’t be your only method, as it doesn’t give reasoning behind the answers and could leave you confused on topics you are unsure of. The online courses, textbook videos, flash cards, etc are really great!
The app does well in providing study resource while on the go and can build your performance level for multiple choice format exam.
950 Questions in order by chapter
The design itself isn't bad.. however for $10 you're getting ever online quiz question smashed into one giant test with no way to sort or filter through chapters. I like the concept of instantly knowing if I got something wrong or right. The app doesn't seem to have any glitches either as well. This is nice if you don't have the online smart learning center with the practice quizzes/exams and is a cheap alternative.. but if you have that, then it's not worth the price. I think if there was a way to filter the content by chapters or retake all the questions you got wrong.. it'd be a lot better! I'm rating two stars as personally, it wasn't with the buy. But for someone who doesn't have the online tool, I'm sure they'd rate a lot higher.
Not terrible, but could be better
This app is a bit clunky. I used it to help me study for AINS 21, 22, and 23. Each class was $10 to unlock, so $30 was spent total. I noticed that for AINS 21 it didn’t give a reason why a question was wrong, but it did for most of the questions for the other two classes. I like that after answering questions for each chapter it told you the percentage that you got right. However, it’s a pain to go back and review the questions that you missed. Overall, I highly recommend this app as a study guide for AINS. The tests are in the same format so it helps you know what to expect. Besides reading the chapters, I didn’t use any other study guide and easily passed all of the tests. I went through the questions for each chapter until I scored 95% or higher.
