When will the site be updated for the 2017 PDG?

The site will switch to the 2017-2019 Air Force Handbook-1 edition on 15 Dec 2017 when the E-8 test cycle ends. Until then, the content completed so far can be previewed here: 2017-2019 Air Force Handbook Index


Are the 100-question practice tests under the Practice Test tab revised periodically or are they always the same?

The 100-question practice tests are dynamic and present a different test every time a test is started. The pool of 3,000 - 4,000 questions from which the questions are selected is updated periodically as needed.


Why am I unable to select or copy text in the section quizzes?

The inability to copy text is not intentional. Try using Compatibility View or selecting No Style (View, Style, No Style) in the browser toolbar.


&^%$#@!! FreePDG is not free any more?!

As many of you have noticed, the site has become a membership site. The change is necessary because the site has grown to the point where I can no longer support it alone and now need your help to keep it current and improve it.


What exactly is free on this site now?

Access to all the section and all the chapter tests is free for 30 days. However, two areas are not available to trial account (free) users: the 100-question practice test area and the miscellaneous test area. These are reserved for our members.


If I register for a trial account, do I need to cancel to avoid being enrolled in a paid account?

No, no action is required. Users are not automatically enrolled in a paid account when their trial account expires. Note that credit card information is not required for the free 30-day trial.


I paid for a membership last year but forgot my password and am unable to log in. What do I do?

Click on Login and then on Forgot Password and enter your e-mail address or user name. Or send an e-mail to admin@freepdg.com requesting a password change.


How can I change my password?

To change your password, use this link: http://freepdg.com/pdg-members/profile and log in.


The site asks for credit card information. Is the information protected?

Yes. The payment page, where credit card information is entered, is protected. The lock icon in the browser's address bar indicates the page is secure. Note that IE browsers on base may indicate an error due to their restrictive configuration.


If I buy a 2 year membership now and the AF decides to update the PDG to the next version in October will I have to pay for another membership? Or will that be included in this one?

The membership will end 2 years from the time of sign up. If the PDG is revised during that time, you will continue to have access to the current version (which will be kept around a while for out-of-cycle testers) and will also have access to the new edition until whenever 2 years runs out.


Are memberships automatically renewed after 2 years?

No. This site does not store credit card information. If you want to continue using the site after your membership expires, you'll have to manually renew your membership when it expires.


Is the site compatible with Kindle Fire/Android/Samsung smart phones and tablets?

Yes. If you want to test, sign up for a trial membership first.


I just upgraded to Windows 8 and I can't see the tests anymore. Is Windows 8 compatible with your site?

Try clicking the compatibility button on the browser's tool bar. It's the icon that looks like a sheet of paper ripped in half.


Does using this site constitute a test compromise? Have any official agencies contacted you concerning test compromise?

No. Using this site is not a test compromise. It cannot be a test compromise because the questions in the quizzes and practice tests come from the text of the PDG and I don't know what will be on the test. I have not been contacted by any official concerning this site.


I registered for a free trial membership. Why am I unable to access the practice test or misc test areas?

With a 30-day trial membership you can access all the individual section and chapter tests but the practice test and misc test areas are reserved for our contributing members.
