Description

Pass the Security+ exam on your first try! Create customized practice tests, view detailed answer rationales, and review your results with just a few taps. 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 CompTIA® Security+ (SY0-501) 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 CompTIA studies with you, no matter where life takes you. SY0-501 Content Areas: - 1.0 Threats, Attacks and Vulnerabilities - 2.0 Technologies and Tools - 3.0 Architecture and Design - 4.0 Identity and Access Management - 5.0 Risk Management - 6.0 Cryptography and PKI Get Started for Free: We provide a limited free version so you can get a feel for the app before deciding to upgrade. The free version offers 74 questions with detailed answer explanations. - 30 free questions available with download - 30 free bonus questions available through social media - 14-day access to the Question of the Day (QOTD) - Comprehensive test-taking strategy guide Unlock the Ultimate Mobile Learning Experience: A one-time in-app purchase grants full lifetime access to our Security+ app. - 500 total practice questions and detailed rationales - Lifetime access to Question of the Day (QOTD) - Unlock all social media bonus questions - Unlock Exam Builder to create customized exams - Priority in-app support Pocket Prep Features: - No internet required - Study Modes: See answers as you go or at the end - Retake past exams with a single tap - Study reminders and QOTD notifications - Automatic test saving and retrieval - Detailed history and results reporting - Exam day countdown - Multi-device ready Our team of writers and editors are industry leaders who have meticulously crafted Security+ practice questions and detailed answer explanations with you in mind.

    The dashboard is buggy (“Question Metrics” are never correct and the “Reset Progress” never fully works), but the app is a decent “bathroom” study. While the questions look NOTHING like the real exam, they do get to the heart of a lot of different concepts. Would recommend adding failure metrics and quantitative risk assessment content. Do this for quick exams, read Darril Gibson’s book, and watch a lot of Professor Messer (free on YouTube). That’s all you need.
  • I really enjoy this :)

    I love this! It should not be used as your only reference, but it provides you the ability to do quick quizzes where ever you have time. It can help you solidify some of the core concepts. Good luck to everyone:)! P.S. Even after completing the test I still use the app for quick review during down time.
  • Not even close to good prep

    The SY0-501 is nothing like these questions. The questions on the exam are scenario driven. Given this data, what’s the best choice, or given this output when and what happened. Pocket prep questions aren’t even close to this. Complete waste of money.
  • Lasted update breaks app - Updated

    Happily used this for weeks until the latest patch. The patch resulted in lost credentials and an inability for the app to run on my iPhone unless loading directly from the App Store using the “Open” option. Won’t save my credentials and keeps reporting that I am on the free version - not the premium version that I had been using pre update. Restore purchase doesn’t fix the issue, nor does a phone reboot. It appears that the issue resolved itself within a couple of days. I can’t now recreate the problem so I don’t know it it was the application or phone - but neither was updated prior to the issue being resolved. The app performs as expected and was a very useful tool in my personal experience. I used the daily question as well as the quick 10 questions (at least once a day). The app then kept a calculation covering each area of the exam and my overall correct percentage for each topic. I could then use those indicators to determine where to focus my studies.
  • Great app not so sure about the content

    App is great but I believe the content is not exactly what you need to know, however is a great app and the idea of refreshing the knowledge on your mobile is very convenient!
  • Do NOT use this app as a main study engine

    I am very disappointed with the questions on this app. The 4 star review on this app befuddles me because I truly and objectively think it does not merit such a rating. I would argue that almost 25% of the questions on this app have NOTHING to do with the actual exam. For example, this app asks you all the different classes of fire extinguisher classes (A-K) and asks you all the different steps of the SDLC and what number each step is (that’s not directly tied to IT Security!). I foolishly wasted so much time on this study engine thinking it was legit. It’s absolutely not! If you want real study material and preparation for the exam, spend your money on a book. Buy Darril Gibson or watch professor Messer videos (free). Those sources are excellent study materials. This app deserves to be in the bin. I strongly recommend to not spend the $15 on it as it will be a waste of your money and, more importantly, your time.
  • So many mistakes!!!

    I paid for the premium and regret it so much. I want my money back. Some questions do not even make sense, filled with grammatical errors and there are wrong answers.
  • Fantastic App

    Numerous bugs in these PocketPrep apps. Repeated (daily) prompts to create account; I’m already logged in. Repeated (daily) prompts to purchase; already made purchase (and logged in). Repeated (daily) prompts to purchase a tutoring service; app needs to take no for an answer! Nearly continuous “refreshing user data”. This blocks the entire UI , makes app unusable for 45-120 seconds. This occurs on every app launch, and occurs even if the app was only put in the background for a few seconds. Refreshes should run on a background (and not block the main UI)! I’ve purchased ISC2 CISSP, ISACA CISM, ISACA CISA, CompTIA Network+. I’ve also tried CompTIA CASP, CompTIA Security+, and CompTIA A+. All seven of these PocketPrep apps have the same buggy issues.
