We strive to make studying more efficient by redefining how you prepare for the latest CompTIA® Security+ 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.

  • Don’t waste money

    By EKR43
    Who ever wrote the questions has clearly never taken a comptia exam, I even doubt he knows anything about computers. Terrible short questions that don’t match the exam. A large portion of them are horrendously worded, and at least 10 that I have seen had wrong answers. There is at least 10 questions about fire extinguishers, even a question about cooking oil fires, really? Don’t waste money on this trash.
  • Navigation is weak.

    By KB4MLW
    Needs a few more buttons to move around. Not have buttons that move around. Consistent navigation set would really help this app. The question pool, I’m not overly impressed so far. Need better wording. Additionally the answer explanation could stand to be more detailed.
  • Question not updated to 501

    By grfghjkigff
    Same questions as last year- not a large pool of questions
  • Good app on the Go

    By M Vig-San
    This app is good to use when on the go, but definitely not something you want to solely rely on. Great for supplementing with other test prep, it has tons of questions and keeps good metrics on progress. I passed on my exam on the 1st attempt using this app, and tons of other resources. Also hey, The money back guarantee is a good assurance, that’s what got me to buy the full version. Good luck !
  • Not even close to what’s on the actual exam

    By Guy Db
    I see a lot of positive reviews about this app but unsure if they’re from users who passed or not. I purchased the ultimate edition and must say I’m disappointed. I took and passed the live exam and used this app maybe once a week. My primary sources were Darril Gibson and Professor Messer. I would Highly encourage anyone to read his book and purchase his premium content. Most of the questions on this app aren’t even covered in the Comptia objectives! The live exam will mostly consist of scenario based questions, not factual based as they are in here. I’ll give them this, this app is good for brute force memorization but again, that’s about it. Lastly, I found that most of the questions and answers were completely irrelevant and not covered In the objectives. It’s more of a nice to know but not necessary. Please don’t waste your money on this! Save yourself some gas money and use the free edition which is useless as well.
  • Passed!

    By Alex_Reyes86
    After my first failed attempt, I decided to purchase PocketPrep Security+ to help go over areas I was weak in. After consistently scoring in the mid 80s, I went for my test and passed on my second attempt! To anyone who is studying for the Security+, this will help you in areas you are weak in. I highly recommend reading a book and taking as many pretests as you can.
  • Prep

    By Bajandan
    This was was good practice for, really builds your knowledge along with your other study materials.
  • Pretty good prep for Sec+

    By Gregory F. Miller
    I write questions for the SEC+, CEH, CISSP, CASP, CCFP, CCNA and some others so I know good questions when I see them. It’s also easy to see that questions are recycled from other exams, which isn’t a bad problem but it distracts from what is actually on the Sec+ exam. Some of the questions’ answers are incorrect but for the most part, they’re on target. They’re well-written and we’ll-composes questions with minimal errors in grammar and punctuation. The questions are simplistic and explanations don’t go into much detail. No big deal there. The app and web portal interfaces are pleasant and nicely-presented. Overall, they have a good system of app, web portal, questions and exam setup process so I’m satisfied with my purchase of ultimate version. **** Update after Exam: Failed the exam by 3 points after repeated study of the 500 Sec+ Questions. They don’t seem to honor their money back guarantee because they don’t respond to their support email.
  • Go buy other app! Waste of money! Irrelevant Questions!

    By eroodit
    Do not waste your money for this app. Old and useless questions, overpriced. For this price you can buy 3 Darryl Gibson app which is way better than this! In addition after you purchase, there is no way they will return your money back, do not make my mistake that I maid. No customer support at all, do not reply to your requests!
  • dev needs to read crash logs and fix threading

    By aitrusnc
    All versions of the PocketPrep apps display the same problems. Frequent hangs/freezes, crashes, and lost data. Reading the device/app logs (by connecting device to Xcode) shows most of the problems are due to poor thread management. Long activities on the main thread being system halted after timeout is exceeded, or threads trying to dispatch work to themselves. This is sloppy coding. And, it’s obvious they reuse the same code across all of their apps. If I put my device in airplane mode, these apps do behave better... further confirming most of the freeze/crash occurrences are within the thread management of network calls and SQLite data updates (which is clearly indicated in the crash logs). I contacted PocketPrep directly about data loss from app crashes, provided details, got an automated reply, followed by absolutely no response from them. As much as I like the idea of these apps and the progress tracking features, it’s nearly addictive when it works, the reality is these apps aren’t stable and the metrics data is gibberish. In hindsight I should have spent the money purchasing additional books and avoided these apps like the plague that they are.
