Best PDG study app!!

You cant beat this app! Study anywhere! While waiting to be called in for you hospital appt, during lunch, etc.. The best!

Forget that overpriced McMillan crap!

I was going to HYT as a SSgt, because my career-field has been one of the most competitive for the last several year (low promotion numbers & very high cutoff scores). The app was as good or better than the PDG Gold or McMillan stuff that my friends were using. Its all about studying in a way that you, as an individual, can retain the info for that ridiculous test. I used this to ask questions after I studied, and help me find the holes in my retention. Then Id go back to my notes and study everything I missed or wasnt completely sure about. This app didnt get me promoted, but it worked the way that I needed it to for a fraction of the cost of "PDG Gold" foolishness.

Never touch a PDG again.

Used this app and never even read an actual PDG. Made Staff my first time testing. Nuff said.

This is a joke -- waste of $$

This app maybe good for testing to SSgt and TSgt but it is obvious the creators were clueless when it comes to the higher ranks. The test and quiz questions were flat out stupid and read like they were formulated by someone who barely graduated high school. Dont waste your money and definitely dont buy into the "well update the content as the PDG changes" sales pitch.

Great app but 1 thing missing...

Great app!! First time investing in my future promotion with this app. Overall feels great and I love the layout. Only 1 thing that I wished you guys updated is the fact that the Acronyms are killing me Im not sure what some of them are. If at all possible could you make those clickable so we can at least see what the whole word is. Thank you very much and I hope I could help improve the app :) thx

Simple but good

I really enjoy having the PDG at my finger tips as well as being able to take quizzes. Simple but very helpful!


This app is awesome, the helpful hints may be corny but you sure dont forget them. Ill let you know next August if it did anything to help me make SSgt first time

Would give 5 stars if...

This app is really good and I like the learning format better than PDG gold from McMillan. I wouldve given it 5 stars if it gave me the option of multiple choice tests as well since I find myself saying that I was "close enough" instead of right/wrong. Also wish they would come out with an update to fix some of the annoying typos in it. Overall a great learning app that includes all ranks and a definite choice over the over-priced PDG Gold Suite. At $5.99, you cant afford not to try it out!

Buy it!

Cant beat the price, easy & simple to study on the go! All its missing is multiple choice questions.

Needs multiple choice feature

Good and simple, but needs a multiple choice option

Good app

Simple app that gives good overview of PDG. No excuses now about studying with it on the phone. Could have multiple choice feature to make it 5 stars but great app to have!


I love how its organized and remembers where you left off and the helpful Hints are awesome.

Almost perfect app

Great app and study guide! Really helps me to remember and retain the information. Cons: It crashes in occasion. Staff is quick to help or refund so it makes up for it. I use it everyday


Great study guide! Update to multiple choice and it is 5 STARS and would probably be the best app ever.

Easy to study!

Easy to go by, review and test

Good app

Very accurate...but do not have everything...in chapter 3...multiple choice would be nice...like the hits

Awesome app!

This is an excellent study guide and baseline to see where youre at. The "helpful hints" come in very handy. App crashes on occasion but overall its a great product. I highly recommend!!

To bad so sad

Nice update but crashes on my 1st gen ipad with ios 5.1.1. If it works the pages flip back to the cover page so studying is next to impossible. also, i cant take the test due the the cover page popping up as well. If it wasnt for that it would be a solid product for the money and 5 stars.


This product is garbage. I cant even get through a practice test without it crashing. Absolutely annoying and unacceptable. I want a refund immediately.

I suggest this app!

I had a problem with my app downloading at first and sent them an email, they responded almost immediately with great help, which I was not expecting but was definitely satisfied with. This app has been ideal for me for times I am bored, I can just open my app and study instead of wasting time on Facebook or games. I did not have this app to study with last year and this year, just by the use of this app, I am already more confident and ready to test! The only downside I found for this app was it does not save my progress between my iPad and my iPhone, but that doesnt bother me.
