Guide Review - PrepLogic Audio Trainer
This is the first audio trainer I have tried and
I was impressed with the quality and surprised by how easy it
was to remember the information. My first thought when I
received it was that traditional practice tests would inevitably
be easier to use and the material easier to retain. I was wrong;
audio training is surprisingly effective. You must be able to
concentrate so I don't know if I would recommend listening while
driving, but I had no problem remembering key points. The only
downside is the potential to memorize the questions as you
study, as there is no way to randomize the order in which they
The best feature by far is the ultimate
convenience of having practice tests on CD. You can play them on
any car or stereo CD player or download these to .mp3 and listen
whenever and wherever. If you plan to track your progress and
incorrect answers, be sure to keep paper and pen handy. None of
the tracking and scoring features are available here as they are
with the software trainers.
I gave this a 4-star review based on a couple
of minor points. There are only 70 questions, which is decent
for the price of $34, but more would be nice. There are no
accompanying study materials and you will still need to buy a
book to really cover all the material for the exam. The $34 buys
you two CD's which cover the material for one exam. However,
bundles are available that cover multiple exams and come with
written study guides and start in the $80 range.
