Sporty's Study Buddy will prepare you for the FAA written test like no other study tool available, with three modes of operation - learning mode, simulated tests and flashcards.

Learning Mode allows you to create custom review sessions by selecting exactly which categories you want to review. Each session randomly generates the question order, and provides instant feedback based on your answer selection. Each question also provides a detailed description as to why each answer is right or wrong. These explanations were developed by Sporty’s team of Master CFIs, based on their experience preparing students for the Private Pilot certificate

Flashcard mode tests your knowledge by allowing you to only see the question without the answer choices. After answering the question mentally, you can then select to show the correct answer, and self-grade your progress along the way. This is a great feature that keeps you from being distracted by incorrect answers!

Test mode randomly generates a 60-question session from the entire database of published FAA test questions, simulating the real Private Pilot test. After answering all the questions, you’ll be given instant results, and have the option to review either all the questions, or just missed questions. Included in the review session are the same detailed explanations for why each answer is right or wrong.

    Many sources for these questions. This app also was very badly edited. Grammatical and typo errors create confusing messages in explanations. Learning mode is nothing more than cursory reiterations of the answers. You learn nothing but answers. Won't understand them.

    Covers a good bank of questions in a better mobile interface than some of the free web pages. The interface does have a few bugs though. When moving between questions sometimes the previous answers are still slightly visible until you interact with that area of the screen. The other issue is that the cross county figures are out of date/different than Sporty's free online study buddy. For example

    The app has a decent amount of content, not what would seem like $10 worth. As far as the interface, I couldn't save or star the questions I wanted to look at later if I wanted to study a different section. You can save them for later as long add you stay in the same section. Also, there is an error where the app doesn't clear the display area while going back through questions you already answe

    A pretty complete study guide and question back for FAA exam. Learning mode with explanations is great for test prep and convenient for miscellaneous study time.
