Pocket Prep is your award-winning tool in mobile learning and exam preparation. Pocket Prep allows you to study anywhere, anytime, right from your mobile device. We strive to make studying more efficient by redefining how you prepare for the latest CompTIA® Security+ exam. * Academics’ Choice “Smart Media” award winner * EdTech Digest “Cool Tool” award winner 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. Get Started for Free: We provide a limited free version so you can get a feel for the app before deciding to upgrade. The free version offers dozens of practice questions with detailed answer explanations and limited access to the Question of the Day. Want Even More Practice?

  • dev needs to read crash logs and fix threading

    By aitrusnc
    All versions of the PocketPrep apps display the same problems. Frequent hangs/freezes, crashes, and lost data. Reading the device/app logs (by connecting device to Xcode) shows most of the problems are due to poor thread management. Long activities on the main thread being system halted after timeout is exceeded, or threads trying to dispatch work to themselves. This is sloppy coding. And, it’s obvious they reuse the same code across all of their apps. If I put my device in airplane mode, these apps do behave better... further confirming most of the freeze/crash occurrences are within the thread management of network calls and SQLite data updates (which is clearly indicated in the crash logs). I contacted PocketPrep directly about data loss from app crashes, provided details, got an automated reply, followed by absolutely no response from them. As much as I like the idea of these apps and the progress tracking features, it’s nearly addictive when it works, the reality is these apps aren’t stable and the metrics data is gibberish. In hindsight I should have spent the money purchasing additional books and avoided these apps like the plague that they are.
  • Almost 5 stars... almost.

    By Berklee Music Student
    Wish it had explanations for the right answers AND the wrong answers. Also, this app would be THE BEST if it had a simulated flash cards for acronyms!
  • Very good

    Small selection but similar to testing questions
  • Even if you pay for more questions they repeat

    By Marckthew the 9th
    I paid $15 for the 250 question version, thinking that I would get 250 completely random and different questions. Instead, out of every 10 question test I took maybe 1 or sometimes no questions were new. Didn’t help me study very much.
  • Garbage

    By qrweasdq
    The app crashes every time you open it
  • Not enough

    By Tristan bi
    This app has a nice GUI but it is not difficult enough nor does it have sufficient questions and depth to bring you successfully through the exam!
  • Great app

    really helpful for preparing for ny Security + exam
  • A bit frustrated

    By Boncuk12345
    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.
  • Wonderful and affordable

    By Matt83)
    This (along with other forms of studying) gave me the confidence to pass my exam. Obviously, you shouldn’t use this as your ONLY study method, but this app helped me a lot when it came down to practicing the material learned. Loved that I could use it on my laptop as well. Thanks for making this app, really, thank you!
  • Returning customer!

    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!
