Comments: I just wanted to give my utmost thanks to the developers of this site. I scored an 82 on my PFE after only scoring a 60 the test prior (22 point increase!). I have used other pricier study aids in the past but this one works for me and produces results!

Name: Kevin R. Williams
Location: Schriever AFB
Comments: I used to study for TSgt. As it was my first time testing for Tech and keeping in mind that I only pulled a Promote (despite my heavy disagreement) on my latest EPR, I wasn't too confident of the results. However, with a committed study habit of at least 2 hours a day combined with review of my AFSC's CDC material and a competitive product, I was able to score a 91% on my PFE and a 76% on my SKT. I highly recommend this product to anyone testing.

Comments: As an instructor I would like to say that the way you have your studying set up is called the "chunking method." This is the most effective method of studying that has made me successful as well as many of my co-workers. Your site blows the PDG gold out of the water... Made TSgt using you and will make MSgt using you. Thanks!!!!!!

Comments: Hello, Against higher odds for this years 18% promotion rate, I'm a new MSgt select (2nd time testing and ZERO decorations! so yeah anything is possible if you put your mind to it). I used this website to help me (along w/ actually reading the book twice) and taking notes. This website is a force multiplier for people to use to test their knowledge. See you in a few years when I'm studying for Senior. Thank you!

Name: Chris
Location: FL
Comments: I purchased PDG Gold, but didn't really like it; so I tried out for the 2 months before WAPS testing (12E6) and I ended up scoring #2 of 78 on the PFE and making TSgt first time. I really appreciate the product you've made available! Keep up the great work and I look forward to using this website again in 2 years when I go up for MSgt. As long as this is available I'll keep encouraging all my coworkers to use it.

Just wanted to let you know that I made SMSgt this time around. My board score really propelled me into making it this time but I ended up with another solid score on the PDG by using your site. Actually, I exclusively used your site to study the past two years and scored a 71 on the PDG both years. I ended up scoring 20 points over the cutoff this year so I was pretty happy. Thanks again and I wish you well with your future. -M
