Description

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 NSCA's Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS®) 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 strength and conditioning 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.

  • Excellent when it works

    The functionality of the app is very useful as a study guide. All the the questions and answers are referenced in the text. You can specify the content of the practice exams. I would give this a higher rating but it does seem to suffer from stability issues, randomly crashes or freezes. I still enjoy this app and recommend it , but I wish it was less buggy.
  • Good but not Great

    Used it on iPhone 6s. The app is good but crashes a lot, I would get the “error finding questions” a lot, and it was slow at times. My biggest gripe was that I paid for the $20 version and received 400 questions and a 2 month membership. If you take a 10 question quiz it reduces your total questions left by 10. This is regardless if the questions are new or ones you have seen previously. There were probably about 250 different questions out of the 400 that I had purchased. Out of the 400 questions I averaged a 91% and I just took my exam a few hours ago and passed with an 84%. I say the questions were very appropriate to the exam but the hefty price tag and performance issues were big problems I had with the app. I have no problem paying $20 for study materials but would like the app to work flawlessly. It worked as well as a free app.

    This app does not do what you say it does. I can’t create exams from flagged questions because it doesn’t remember that questions were flagged. It doesn’t keep up with how many questions you’ve actually answered correctly and how many you have remaining out of 800. I always get some random number. Dial up internet had faster loading times. I’ve tried uninstalling and downloading again like you suggested and it didn’t help. I want my money back.
  • Great content but the app is very slow

    The Good: I just recently took and passed my CSCS Exam and this app was one of my 2 study tools. The questions on the app are more similar to the questions that were on the test than any other questions I found on the internet. Being able to keep track of the subjects you were weakest in and being able to focus study time on that subject was a crucial element for me. The Bad: The app started out ok, but become slower and slower and the app frequently crashed. The bright side is the the app on my MacBook worked very well so I studied that way, but that kind of defeats the name of app if I have to use my computer.
  • Great. Please stop crashing

    Not sure the exact issue I have had the app for a while. Was great at first. Very responsive, now all it seems to do is stop me mid- exam or not switch from interface to interface ( bottom of screen). Please fix this as quickly as you can. It’s very frustrating when studying.
  • Great tool

    Very easy to use and extremely convenient. A great app for finding little moments to do a quick 10 question exam.
  • Repeat questions

    By Nick @ lofatlabs
    I have only had this a short time, but have already seen several repeat questions. While this is fine for the repeated exposure learning phenomenon, those repeats ARE counting toward the total number of questions. IMO, when a question is repeated, it shod not count toward that total.
  • I like it, but...

    Been using the app for a couple months. I love how the breakdown of the answer tells you where to find the information on the book. I’ve been using both to study. I love the convenience of this app and how I can change how many questions I want to run through at a time. My only issue is the app will freeze when I open it and has been crashing often. It’s been getting worse the longer I’ve had it. Today I haven’t been able to run through any questions because the app just will not stay open.

    This app is good to quiz yourself on basic physiology, programming, and exercise science but the knowledge level of these questions is a step or two below the actual NSCA questions. Do not use just this app to study!
