Why should you join the countless Airmen who have already been promoted using this app? Read on...
1. PURCHASE ONCE, USE FOR A CAREER! PDG PROmote provides lifetime free updates. Why should you have to pay for a new app every time the study guides are updated? You don’t pay $0.99 for these apps. You deserve lifetime updates. We know that your promotion is important to you but that doesn’t give us the right to take advantage of it. Should the Air Force resume testing for the SNCO ranks in the future, rest assured that we will include those ranks in the app too.
2. EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN ONE APP! This app contains everything you need to prepare for your WAPS testing. We're serious. You never need to leave the app.
3. ADAPTABLE TO EVERY LEARNING STYLE. Not everyone studies the same way. PDG PROmote provides all of the options you need to study in a manner that works best for you. Want to read the AFH 1 paragraphs? You can. Want to read condensed nuggets of information from AFH 1? You can. Want to study flashcard questions? You can. Want to study flashcard questions but with the answers always shown? You can. Want to listen to the slides, flashcards, or AFH 1 paragraphs on your way to work? You can. Want to listen and read at the same time? You can. Your mission is to master all the testable sections of AFH 1 and no other app offers you as many ways to do that.
4. JUST SIT BACK AND LISTEN. We made our audio even better. Sit back and listen to study slides, questions, and even AFH 1 paragraphs. Sure, it's synthetic audio but it’s a popular feature that many of our users use on their drive to and from work.
5. OUR SMART TESTS WILL SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS. PDG PROmote knows which questions you have seen, answered correctly, gotten wrong, how many times you answered correctly, how many times you answered incorrectly, even how many consecutive times you answered a question correctly. It uses this information to always put the right questions in front of you on tests.
6. OPTIMIZE YOUR LIMITED STUDY TIME. You have a full-time job. We know you need to get the most out of your limited study opportunities. PDG PROmote makes it easy for you to maximize the effectiveness of your study sessions.
7. INTUITIVE DESIGN. PDG PROmote is simply the most intuitive and least frustrating AFH 1 study guide you will find. Experience the difference a great designed app can make.
8. OUR QUESTIONS ARE SIMPLY BETTER. Many of our users have commented to us that our questions aren't as simplistic as other apps. They make you think a little more. The actual exam seemed easier. PDG PROmote provides TOTAL COVERAGE of the AFH 1 based study guides.
9. DON’T BE TRICKED INTO PAYING SKY HIGH PRICES! You will be accused of selling yourself short. Don’t believe it. You will be asked to pay a small fortune for their "experience". Just remind yourself that you are being tested on a handbook (AFH 1) dated 1 October 2019, not 1987. You can easily find Airmen who have used our app and scored high. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE. Our users pay about half as much, get the same or better results, and get free lifetime updates. Doesn't that sound wise to you?

PDG PROmote 2019-2021 Positive Reviews
Best app around one big flaw!This app is a great tool to promote even if you have limited time. However right now the only way to test on more than one chapter is by Custom Test>select chapters and # of questions. The problem with that is that some of this chapters are fairly big and riddled with A3 sections and the test will try to pick an even amount of questions from each chapter. (Most chapters have more A3 material than any other material). Technically there is nothing wrong with that as it will still be testable information. But even the app recommends X1 (x being the leve of understanding; abc) the most and X3 the least. So you will spend most of your time on “less important material”.
If only there was a “Mock Wasp Test Option” where it selected from all the elegible chapters but in a rate that most of the material was extremely important; followed by Very important; and last the Important material. This option would make an already great app the best all around app. Adding a timer to said option would be the cherry on top..Version: 5.9
Review? Why not. I’m boredThis app is pretty good. Giving it 5 stars because I wouldn’t change much about it. It updates to the current testing requirements, and has very few issues. Perfect for getting up to E5 or E6.
Don’t get me wrong. It has its issues. I’m a little miffed that the ‘voice’ portion reads the apostrophes as “number 39”.. so that’s a little annoying. Studying or listening to it on a car ride and a sentence says something along the lines of “The numbered AF blah blah blah it’s own squadrons.” It doesn’t read like it should, it reads “..blah blah blah it number 39 S own squadrons.”
The text is fine, but the voice in the app makes minor errors like that. But again, that’s minor.
The questions hit everything and flows pretty well. The fact that it remembers everything you do in the app, has the ability to do missed question tests on its own, option to randomize the questions, it’s a good study partner. 5 out of 5 if going by stars, or 9.9 out of 10 on a real scale, because nothing’s perfect. Try it out. Worth the chump change to buy the app and you don’t have to re-buy anything or have in-app purchases..Version: 7.0.5
Helped me make Tech!I love this app! I made Tech my first time using it. Plus you can’t beat the price. The other apps cost way more and you can only use them for 2 years. Once you pay for this one you have all updates for life. Just study the MKTS and you are golden. Unfortunately, I won’t have to use it again since they took away testing for SNCOs. Please make an app for the SKT portion. I know that would require a lot of man hours, research, and resources but you guys have promotion testing figured out!.Version: 5.9
Great App to make it to the next Stripe...The app itself is amazing in terms of testable material to come in the tests and tracks progress. The only two setbacks I see is that:
1. It won’t save any progress made in the “Create Custom Test”. If you make a 1,000+ questions test and want to rest a bit, if you press “Pause” you just lost all the progress you have made until now and have to restart all over again, discouraging you from doing it again.
2. I have sent numerous emails asking this company how to use the app/material in another devices, for example a PC. I bought this app here at the AppStore and I want to use it on my PC, but I don’t see a way. They promote the “Now On PC....” but it’s just to use the Microsoft Store, get the app and pay for it again. Oh and they have not replied back to any emails I have sent. So there is that..Version: 6.1.3
Missed Questions TestSo they want to get rid of the missed questions test, prefer people test in smaller chunks and trust the algorithm but users like the specific “missed questions.” I don’t understand why they don’t just utilize the missed questions test more broadly in that case. As it is now, you hit the missed questions test and you only answer what you recently missed, then it disappears until you miss more questions. Just make it routinely test on the users weak answers rather than resetting every time. There’s way too many sections to go over, so that’s probably why people want to specifically focus on things they’re missing rather than going section by section again..Version: 7.0.5
Not bad but new update has bugs.Overall this app is great. Only rested for stars due to new update and possible bugs with it. On multiple slides in the new study feature, it will not register that I have went over the exact slide and remain blue. It leads to it saying I have completed 50/57 slides on multiple occasions. The only way I have found to fix it is sitting on the slide for over five minutes. There are other slides that have a different shade of green and I am unsure if this means something or if that is also another visual bug. Any response would be greatly appreciated on how to remedy this for everyone else..Version: 7.0.1
New update good but has some question bugsThe new update is very helpful with the applicable readable content (AF1 paragraphs) a click away from the study guides and test questions. My only complaint is that some of the questions aren’t worded correctly. There are a few that should say which of these is not the correct answer etc. With the paragraphs I’m able to read and make applicable question notes, which helps. It would be nice to see that’s fixed though..Version: 7.0
2nd time testing for MSgt and killed itI wouldn’t have made E-7 without this app. I blew the PDG out of the water. I say it was my second time but actually it was my first, due to the fact that I didn’t crack a book the first year because of “mandatory” EPME. Thank you guys for putting this app together. I’ll definitely be using it in two years when it comes time for me to test for SMSgt!.Version: 5.5
Clean interface and layoutI’ve been using this app to study for promotion for the last 8 weeks and it definitely makes me feel more prepared for the WAPS this cycle. Even though some of the hints for remembering things seem super random, they definitely help you remember the material. Good job with the functionality and easy to navigate interface. I also like the MKTS option to study topics of more importance. Excellent app and I have already recommended to my colleagues at work. Keep it up!.Version: 5.9
Great App! Apple Pencil Support?I love this app so far! I will be testing for E6 real soon and everything’s been going good with the app. The only thing I’d suggest is making it compatible with the Apple Pencil for note taking. I understand that it allows you to type notes but for some people it’d add to the experience if the user was able to write notes instead of typing them. Other than that this app is amazing and seems like the developers take the time to continuously update!.Version: 5.9
Worth the purchaseVery useful and practical as well. Only minor mistakes here and there but none are misleading in any way. Would love the option to take a test over all chapters at once instead of just individual chapters.
Update: August 2018. The latest update on my phone allows me to create a custom test and cover all chapters. For me the App is now ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!.Version: 5.5
Helpful hints really not that helpfulI like the app the material is great but seems like it’s just more work trying to memorize the helpful hints to help you memorize the answers. At that point your not really learning just memorizing but hey at the end of the day the information is getting in. I could just do with out these helpful hints or atleast make them helpful.Version: 5.9
2 (M)SgtsThank you for your amazing app! Thanks to PROmote, my wife and I have been selected for promotion. I love the study guide material and the exams. Before my wife recommended this app, I had purchased the PDG Gold and it was straight garbage. I didn’t retain a thing and it was a struggle. With PROmote, it just seemed to be so easy. Glad she recommended it! Thanks again! Highly, highly recommend PROmote!!.Version: 5.5
App Creators were helpfulThe app crashed every time I tried to open it. as it was recommended by a friend of mine since he made staff with it his first time I wanted to give the benefit of the doubt. I emailed the app creators, they had a very fast response time, and looked right into it. I really appreciate it and am anxious to get to work on studying.Version: 6.1.1
Immediate SuccessI studied on my own an struggled my first testing cycle. That’s when a friend told me about this app, and I used it to study for the following years test. Needless to say, I was promoted! You can literally study any time or place, no matter if you do or do not have an online connection! This app is amazing, I really recommend it!
Switching between devicesI really love this app. I do have a question is there a way to make it where if I study on my phone that what I studied and tested over transfers over to my IPad or computer? Sometimes I study on my IPad but would like to pick up where I left off on my phone if I’m out and about..Version: 5.9
Finally made it !!!!!I would highly recommend this app for anyone trying to make the next rank. I like the fact that you get updates at no additional charge. It also has audio and allows you to sort by SKT importance which really helps a lot ..Version: 5.5
Buy it!!I bought this app a few years ago for E-5. And made it my first time. I think I made a 94. I used it again for 2020 E-6. Made it first time again!! Scored 26 pts over the cutoff without any promotion statement. Buy the app and apply yourself. I only studied for 3 weeks a few hours a day..Version: 6.1.3
Helped big timeA few little glitches here and there. Sometimes I didn’t save where I had studied last, but a minor inconvenience. Helped me make Master this time around by letting me study in sections and test at my own pace vs reading a whole PDF file the AF provides..Version: 5.5
Good but needs to be updatedThe app is good with some glitches that can be easily resolved, example unable to continue or return from where you left. The major issue is the line of question needs to be updated. MKTS priorities list is good but the questions were never revised. Example E7 MKTS Airman’s Creed questions should not be the same for E8..Version: 5.9
App Transfer to Different DeviceMessage to the creators,
I bought this app through the apple app store and now I’m being forced to purchase again through google play after i got my new phone. I was wondering if theres a way to restore purchase so I’m not having to buy again. Thank you for your guys help.Version: 6.1.3
Great appMakes it easy to study. Maybe you could add some simple jeopardy style or matching games with sound effects for those of us who find it hard to study by flash cards and quizzes. App still works great but if you’re still looking to improve and stimulate the mind, these are things other apps have done..Version: 5.9
Good but could be betterOverall the app is great, formulates great tests but I feel that there should be links the the PDG for questions so that you can read the source yourself. Yes I know you can go look it up yourself but a quick link in the app would make it a nice one stop shop so to speak. I would recommend this to a friend btw..Version: 5.9
Great setup, needs an added featureThe priorities and the set up is fantastic in this app, however it desperately needs a flash card function. Otherwise you read the same slide question with answer countless times. Makes learning extremely boring and difficult.Version: 5.9
Great AppI went through all the tests and quizzes in this app for a couple of months leading up to testing for MSgt. Without even reading the PDG and only doing the questions I ended up getting an 89 on the PFE. If you’re looking for a great study tool buy this app and don’t waste your time or money on PDG gold..Version: 5.9
Promoted to SSgtThis app is truly amazing, I only used this app to study and I got over a 90 on my WAPS test. Even going into the test there was not one question that I didn’t at least recognize a little bit. I definitely recommend getting this app to study..Version: 6.1.3
Great app!!The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the way the questions are read when you listen to them. It is hard to separate the question from the answer and it gets confusing. If the developer could change that, the app would be perfect..Version: 5.9
Buy It - It’s well worth it for the priceI’ve purchased other promotion apps - ones that require you to spend $80 every two years for their update - and this one knocks them out of the water.
It’s aesthetically pleasing, easy to use, and lets you study based on MKTS priority. I’ve had no issues with it. Plus, it’s only $25 with lifetime updates.
I’ve found that I’ve been more motivated to use this one over other study apps.
I won’t bash McMillan for their way overpriced and poorly designed app. I’ll just say that I highly recommend this one..Version: 5.4
The “study” tab upsets meI love this app and I appreciate the free upgrades. I don’t understand why they decided to work the study option in the question answer format. I only want questions and answers when taking a test! The study option should be in a factual note format taken from the AFH.
Edit-definitely worth a five once that edit is made.Version: 6.1.1
Way betterThis update they just did made this app ten times easier to read and use to study. I appreciate y’all for looking out and helping us Airmen. And good luck to the Airmen seeing this and looking to promote..Version: 7.0.1
Absolutely Worth ItGot the app back in 2017 and used it religiously studying for E5 and then E6. Made it both first times. Material is always kept up to date, and updates are pushed regularly. Hands down, I recommend this app to supplement studying for promotion. Thanks!.Version: 6.1.3
Read the App Developers responses 😂100% bought it because of the App Developers responses to negative reviews.
I would say it was well worth it. I made E6 this year on my first try, and used this app to study for it.
Thank you for developing an effective app, please keep being a savage..Version: 5.5
Great app!This app has come a long way, and it is crazy how well put it is now. Not saying that it used to be bad, but it’s improvements to make the practice tests harder certainly increases the value in its ability to prepare..Version: 7.0.1
Made SSgtI said I would write a review when I got promoted and well that time has finally come. I finally made SSgt with the help of this app. It’s a great study tool if you want to do better than your peers..Version: 7.0.3
Just StartedThis is my first time actually attempting to study. I will update the review after I receive my scores. I have approximately a month and a half till I test and will likely only receive a promote.
Hopefully I can come back and write a decent review after the scores are released..Version: 5.9
IPhone X updateI’ve been using this app for a couple months now and I love it so far, I haven’t tested yet so I can’t comment on the relevance of the content but I wish there was an iPhone X update so it would fit the screen better. Right now I have big gaps at the top and bottom of the screen...Version: 5.4
GreatThis app is great to use in addition to other study methods. It is great that you can hear the test questions and answers being read to you while you are driving. No wasted time..Version: 5.9
OutstandingI had a small issue with this app and submitted a help ticket. The CEO responded and not only fixed it but continued to follow up to ensure the problem was rectified. Amazing customer service and a great app. This is my first ever review and highly recommend it.Version: 5.2
Not all information is correctI like this app I use it along with the hard copy to study but every now and then I come across question that aren’t correct and there isn’t a way to flag the question for the developers..Version: 6.1.3
Solid as “Gold”This is a solid app and it will help you with reinforcing what you study! I’ve used pdg gold for several test cycles in the past and I can honestly say this is just as good if not better. The choice is yours... $120 or $20?.Version: 5.2
Fantastic toolI have used this for the last 3 years and would continue to use it if E-7 testing wasn’t being retired. I recommend this app to all my troops, very well done..Version: 5.9
Best study material everTested for SMSgt out of cycle, using this app was beyond helpful for my promotion selection. After studying the book and using this app for practice tests, I scored an 82 with 60 days to study. I will never go back to McMillan products..Version: 5.5
Just one thing missingI have this app on my iPhone and iPad, it would be nice if they were in sync so I can pick up where I left off on my phone to my iPad or vice verse, rather than try and figure out where I left off. Other than that, I love it..Version: 5.5
Hats off to the developersThis is a great program. Every issue that I had was addressed with an update in under 24 hours. Hats off to the developers! I really enjoy studying with the application..Version: 5.9
Passed SSgt Test 1st TimeWhat I did:
-Prioritized what to make notes for based on MKTS chart
-Made Flashcards with the information found in app (very time consuming)
-Studied flash cards everyday for an hour or so
*I thought I failed considering what I saw as a priority in the MKTS chart versus what I saw on the Air Force Knowledge portion of the test was not there. In other words, I guessed a lot on questions/material I’ve never seen/studied.
Follow my advice. Study all parts of the Air Force Handbook/PDG, regardless of the priority. You’re welcome..Version: 5.7
ConfusedWhy when I take a test for testing for TSgt under the new update, Air Force history is all 2C stuff, there’s no questions from any other section.Version: 6.1.1
Great appI love this app! It’s definitely worth the money.. it’s so easy to use and is ready at any time. I can study anywhere! The tests are also a great tool to help you for promotion!.Version: 6.1.2
Developers please help!Every time I try to run this app it immediately closes! The app really help me raise my score last year and helped some of my friends make it (they used it more then me) wanted to get a good head start this year but I can’t get it to stay open! Developers please help!.Version: 6.1
WorthIncredibly valuable resource, allows us to study anywhere anytime. Using this in conjunction with pdg gold and will update this review based on test results..Version: 5.4
