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 CompTIA studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Ratings and Reviews
I have to say that pocket prep is worth every penny. I successfully used it to pass my CompTIA Network + exam a few months back, and I am confident that it will help me prepare for Security + as well. I have tried using websites with exam questions, (which provide the same function for free) but the intuitiveness and ease of use make this my go to choice. I can study comfortably literally anywhere!
For beginners ONLY
This app covers definitions of terms. If you already have some knowledge about the vocabulary for security+, it won’t be much help to you. The questions test your understanding of what the terms mean, but not how to apply them.
The questions provided are all much simpler than ANY of those in the actual exam. It’s partially my fault for buying the premium version before trying out the 30 questions provided, but the misunderstanding could have easily been avoided had the description provided been accurate. The app is presented as if it’s a way to test your readiness for the exam. It is not. I’m not really sure why there’s a money back guarantee if you fail the certification, because this app can not possibly provide you with the knowledge to pass. It’s got a great user interface and works flawlessly compared to similar apps, but the questions need serious work.
In short, DO NOT rely on this app to gauge your knowledge for the certification. Only use it if you’re a total beginner to familiarize yourself with vocabulary. For all others, I recommend Darril Gibson’s GCGA app.
Developer Response ,
Hi there! We appreciate your feedback, but we also wanted to mention that we get the opposite feedback from many other users. We offer Pass Guarantee because we are confident that our app helps you pass the exam.
A bit frustrated
This review is for both the app and the online version. Overall, I am fine with the set of questions and the answers. This app alone isn’t going to get you to pass the exam, especially if you don’t have plenty of real life experience in the field. I’ve been frustrated with this app and the online version. A while back, I even reached out via the app but no one got back to me. For the online version, over and over, when selecting a subject sometimes I am able to test on all available questions but other times I can only do 62. I know for a fact that 2.0 has 100 questions so where is the 62 coming from? I tried 3.0 this morning and I could only test 50 questions but now I am able to do all 100. I don’t see the logic. For the mobile app - I often use it on metro and I am convinced that the scoring is off at times maybe when signal cuts off and certain answers aren’t registered/ captured? The high score I would get wasn’t indicative of all the questions I was missing.
