Rated 2/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
good app for review what you already know, not for learning the material for the first time
Timur Dincer write:
Kaplan provides a good flash card review program for the iphone. Great for reviewing their material when you're away from home.
This app is only useful if you have their printed material. The app quizzes you on a whole exams, it is impossible to break the cards down into smaller manageable sets. For example, you cannot study HVAC flash cards in the building systems exam. You are forced to review all flash cards for that specific exam.
The multiple choice flash card section is a great concept but executed VERY POORLY. For example, a term such as downspout will show up. The multiple choice answers consist of a definition of a downspout, electricity current, means of egress width, and friction loss calculations. Only one answer makes sense. This happens for ALL multiple choice questions, making the multiple choice extremely easy. There is no challenge. Kaplan should look at their printed material and make the multiple choice questions more difficult. Maybe group similar concepts/definitions to test the user.
3 stars for the following:
- somewhat expensive price
- extremely poor multiple choice execution
- randomly doesn't save quizzes
- doesn't save quiz history (track progress)
- only 1 length of quiz (sometimes you don't want to do 160 questions at one time)
- you should be able to select sub-topic within a section (for example, HVAC or electricity within building systems)
- most people can't memorize 160 cards at one time
- no smart flashcards (show me the cards that I missed more than 5 times, to focus on where you struggle)
Poor layout/ app design
Kenny Grossman write:
The flash cards five half the screen real estate to the word, other half to multiple choice selections - resulting in the need to scroll in order to see all the answers, which in turn results in accidentally selecting the wrong answer. And that's the long story of my frustration with this app - poor layout (the word being defined doesn't need that much space) and it is way too easy to tap the wrong answer.
Aside from that, it's a pretty good app to constantly refresh terms and definitions, which is really the whole point.
Expensive for the basic programming
There are basics in the programming of the software that are missing. On the multiple choice, the answer options are so different that makes the exam extremely easy and we all know that in the real exams the answer options are often very close to each other. Once u click on an answer it blinks the correct answer for a minute but immediately moves on to the nxt question. It doesn't give u an option to go back & read the previous q/a. There is no option to change the txt & why do u have to touch right on the answers to scroll up & down? U can't even see what u r reading. Overall great idea but needs improvement but I haven't seen an update since I purchased the program last month. The content needs to get more thorough. Explanations are extremely short to the point they don't stay in memory and exams are too easy.
