Ratings and Reviews
Not working as designed
The question stacks will not update. This was the biggest selling point for me. I can’t work on the questions that I missed because the program is not working as designed. I also was not able to find an updated figure supplement from the program or website, and my test (FII) had a new supplement. It sure was a good thing that I used another company’s study software. I have used Dauntless in the past, and it helped me to pass the test, but I haven’t seen the same quality or support for this latest version. I did contac the support staff and let them know my issue, but they still have not fised the problem after two months.
My big complaint about this software is that there are many answers that are not explained in detail and are ultimately incorrect. It really seems like the developers are resting on their laurels and just interested in making a quick buck rather than helping people actually learn. And, in case you thought you’d like to point out some errors to their on-line staff in hopes that you can help improve the product and get the correct answers, be prepared for a curt and unhelpful reply. Save your money and go get a product from Gleim or Sheppard Air instead - you’ll thank yourself.
Passed my Instrument written test by studying this software. Not exactly but very similar to the FAA test questions.
