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 NCE studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

  • Blank flash cards

    The flash cards are all blank. What a waste of money.

  • Thank you to the developers of this app!!!
    by letty0311 on 2020-07-13 at 5:37 AM

    Thank you for developing this app! It was a great help in the studying process! I score 24 point over what I needed on my first try!!! Yay!!!🥳🥳🥳 Thank you again!!!

  • Ehh I didn’t pass but almost
    by HarlemChild117 on 2020-06-12 at 8:04 PM

    I had the app and payed for the advanced version but still can’t up short. It did help with some but way more detail is needed in some areas for sure. Kind of felt blindsided. Definitely use but in addition to another source.

  • A must have!
    by Johns92 on 2020-05-30 at 2:30 AM

    I am halfway through my masters degree program in clinical mental health counseling and I started studying for the NCE. I bought the recommended book. After reading the first 30 pages I was like ugh! So I searched the App Store and found this app! I love it! I’ve been using it for about a week and it’s a life saver! I love the fact that it gives me the areas to improve in and gives me a question of the day. Great app! I feel more confident in my study habits and I do not feel as anxious about taking the NCE! Thank you!

  • Crashes, deleted progress & no way to log in
    by wheredidyougetthatring on 2020-04-14 at 1:19 PM

    This app has been so frustrating, it regularly crashes on me, freezing or closing out. It also has frequently erased my progress so I can’t tell accurately what my percentage rates are because then I get repeat questions while never having seen other questions. The questions are repeated frequently and many of them seem outdated and sexist, homophobic or transphobic. The question of the day says it will be unlimited new questions but it has always been questions I’ve already answered. Overall I do feel this app has helped me study but the issues are so frequent & irritating it almost isn’t worth it for $35. The developers suggested I delete & re-install the app and when I did so my account could not be recovered- there is no way to log into the app, only to create an account, so I now have no access to my progress or the upgraded account I purchased. My exam is in 19 days and for three weeks now I have been trying to get my account back up and running but the tech support is so slow in helping. This app was very expensive and it does not even work well, and no refund has been allowed either. *UPDATE* I finally got my account recovered because they upgraded the app to have a login button finally, but when I logged in the upgraded version I paid for months ago was still not applied to my account. The developer is now saying it’s my fault for maybe using a capital letter when I logged in, which I didn’t. It has now been A MONTH of me trying to just login and use this app. Huge waste of money, my exam is in 5 days & I haven’t been able to use the app in weeks.

  • Passed the exam but..
    by redbrown dog on 2020-03-12 at 1:55 AM

    okay I have to be honest here.. the actual test was so much harder and detailed than the test questions on pocketprep. although I went through all questions and got high 90percntile scores on pocketprep. Actual NCE was way.... more difficult and barely passed. I recommend people to really know the details...

  • Best Tool to Use if your always on the Go!
    by Menotyou09740 on 2020-02-19 at 4:11 PM

    I liked this app because I would use this when I am in a waiting room, bored at work or before I go to bed. I used this along with the recommended book. I also used the Purple book as well and I Passed! This is app is very helpful. It has glitches and you have to sign in over and over but it was worth it.

  • NCE study
    by KCP27 on 2020-01-20 at 5:25 PM

    Great resource

  • Passed on my first attempt!
    by monicagtz28 on 2019-12-18 at 4:52 AM

    Highly recommend this app to study for the NCE along with your other study materials. I purchased all of the questions and it was well worth it.

  • Great for studying
    by Dark Guardian 9 on 2019-12-14 at 5:59 PM

    This is such a great app for studying for the NCE. I always use the Quick 10 Exam feature so I get a variety of questions to answer in less than an hour. The explanations at the end of the questions are helpful. To unlock the full benefits of the app, you would have to pay about $35. It’s a bit pricey to fully upgrade, but well worth the money if you don’t want to run out of practice questions.

  • Practice Tests Are AWESOME
    by Thrusthush on 2019-12-07 at 2:17 PM

    Helping me a LOT!!! Thank you

  • Passed

    I passed and only used this to study 🙂

  • Passed!
    by MommyFassio on 2019-11-16 at 4:32 PM

    Passed my NCE on the first attempt and this app played a huge role in that. It was wonderful to have a portable study aid with me, and I loved seeing my percentages creep up as I got better! Thank you!!

  • NCE Exam
    by Jherring05 on 2019-10-17 at 1:12 PM

    This program was the best study prep for the NCE.

    by roselovr on 2019-09-10 at 1:57 AM

    This app was really helpful in preparing for the NCE and you can customize tests (on the Ultimate version) to help improve your weaker subjects. I would definitely recommend this to everyone!! I used this app in conjunction with another study guide.

  • Passed the NCE! App was very helpful!
    by JaAlah-Ai on 2019-09-07 at 1:18 PM

    I just passed the NCE on my first attempt Sept 2019!! I studied mostly using this app (along with Rosenthal app and a couple online free quizzes). I studied a full 2 months prior to taking the exam. I paid for the full version of this app in order to unlock all of the test questions and have an unlimited access to their custom prep exams. Although the questions on the NCE were worded very different than the questions on this app, the general content and areas covered were similar and prepared me for answering the NCE test questions.

  • Lost my account, progress, and money
    by mickiiiii on 2019-08-10 at 5:43 PM

    I’ve been using the app consistently and decided to take a break only to find that Im not able to log in anymore. It wants me to create a whole new account. Not only that, but I paid to have the premium features and it wants me to pay again! Now I feel like I’ve lost my account, progress, and money. I’m extremely frustrated. So much for studying using this app. I’ll be primarily using the purple book until this mess gets sorted out.

  • Awful
    by fashionista1299 on 2019-08-04 at 1:06 AM

    I purchased the $19.99 upgrade and it never worked. Nearly every day I tried to restore the purchase and it continued to say I never purchased it, however the money was clearly drafted from my account. I tried to reach out to the company, but of course it was unsuccessful. Do not waste your money on this. I thought I could rely on this app to prepare for my exam, but clearly not.

  • Horrible Support Service
    by Jaxs* on 2019-07-26 at 6:44 PM

    I paid 19.99$ money was quckly taken from my account and I cant even get what I paid for the Classical Edition. And no one is able to help or return a call the same day. Incredible!

  • This APP!
    by Gabrella! on 2019-07-14 at 1:55 PM

    I would like to say this has been awesome!! I love it! Anytime! Any day! I test myself! Then study! Then test! Thank you soooo very much!

  • Helpful!
    by susielovesdogs on 2019-06-30 at 2:10 PM

    Helpful way to do a few questions on the go as well as gage your progress. I just used the free version.

  • Passed!!!!
    by CCsMommie on 2019-06-07 at 2:52 PM

    This app along with Rosenthal’s CDs helped me pass my exam. I used this app many times throughout the day to quiz myself and I made it through all 500 questions when I upgraded.

  • Useful but buggy, inconsistent, and dated at times.
    by Onikaze on 2019-05-09 at 3:26 PM

    The app is a very useful tool for studying for the NCE but it’s not without its problems. The app is buggy at times in that it locks up and will not let you select an answer, most notably on the question of the day. Also bear in mind that your percentages on short tests will not necessarily reflect what you’d make on the actual test because the questions chosen by the app may be heavy in one area that you are weak on but will be a comparatively smaller part of the actual test. Also, some of the questions are inconsistent in the nature of their answers. For example, I have seen two questions both appearing to ask the same thing yet asserting different answers were correct. This may, however, been some nuance in wording, since quite a few questions are very poorly written. But, this will no doubt prepare the taker for seeing similarly poorly written questions on their actual exam. Speaking of wording, some of the questions use very dated terms and some outmoded concepts. For example, some questions refer to people as “transgendered” instead of the preferred term, “transgender.” Some of the other multicultural questions are particularly guilty of answers that seem like rather egregious stereotypes. All in all, a useful tool in your study arsenal. It’s usefulness alone would be about 4 stars. But the app as a whole gets 3 for its buggy issues. Good luck in your studies!

  • I passed with the help of this app
    by Deena67 on 2019-05-08 at 7:24 PM

    I downloaded this app and paid for the full version, it was money well spent. I had heard the questions on this app were similar to the ones on the test, they were right. I used this app a lot, not sure how many tests I took but it was A LOT!! I started doing 150 and 100 question tests as it got closer to test day. I know I sound like an infomercial but hey it really helped

  • App freezes up frequently
    by Poeticlibra23 on 2019-04-27 at 3:52 PM

    While it was initially convenient to have the questions easily accessible on my phone, once I answered a fair number of questions, the app got sluggish. Then it started freezing up. Then I was locked out all together. I had to reinstall the app, which RESET my usage statistics and my questions, and my QTD (required for the pass guarantee), TWICE. Now I have AGAIN answered about 420 of the 500 questions and it is almost non-responsive. When I open it to answer my Question of The Day it takes several minutes to load and I have actually had to CHANGE the settings on my phone to prevent it from going into a locked screen while the QTD is loading or an exam is building. Each time I reinstalled the app, it operated fine until I reached about 150-180 questions, and then it seemed to start ‘crashing’. Honestly, it’s so frustrating to use now, the only reason I bother opening it up anymore is to meet the requirements for the guarantee—but even that seems silly because I’ve already seen all of the questions, and many were so straight-forward that for me, they didn’t seem worthwhile and deserve replacing with meaningful content (since I’m paying to be challenged and there is a set bank of questions). Bottom line: It does NOT meet my expectations.

  • Helpful at first but won’t restore
    by foxyfranny on 2019-04-14 at 4:34 AM

    Had this app and I upgraded to ultimate. It helped me pass my CPCE, along with the purple book. But when I went on to study for the NCE, I had gotten a new phone and when I attempted to restore my previously purchased ultimate access, it wouldn’t restore. Over and over the restore failed. Super bummed.

  • Doesn’t work
    by princess726 on 2019-04-09 at 3:31 AM

    While I find the study material EXTREMELY helpful, the app itself barely works. It freezes constantly and doesn’t allow me to take exams. It constant misreads data and it randomly closes out and logs me out. Today, the app randomly switched to basic mode (after I paid for ultimate) and will not let me restore the ultimate features.

  • Great idea but it has too many glitches
    by HRaydd on 2019-03-24 at 9:09 PM

    I love this app but it never works. It constant freezes, kicks me out mid exam, and doesn’t track scores properly. Your better off with the free Rosenthal app.

  • Prep Exams Don’t Refresh - Repetitive Questions
    by gabrielleb_27 on 2019-01-22 at 1:09 AM

    Exams aren’t refreshing. Same questions in every quiz I take.

  • I passed too!!!!!!
    by sdhobbs on 2018-12-19 at 3:51 AM

    On my second attempt at the NCE I found this app. I found out immediately that I was able to retain the information better through this type of study method. I solely studied through this app and passed. However, others may need more than just this app to prepare. It also helped me to understand what the examiners are looking for in the "best answer" scenarios. In short, you can use other study materials but this app gets you in the right mind frame for the test.

  • I PASSED!!!
    by VIRGO2006 on 2018-12-05 at 10:49 PM

    I took my exam this morning and passed with flying colors. I studied this app daily for 3 months prior to taking my test and many of the questions on the test I was able to relate them to many of the questions that were used throughout this app!! I strongly recommend this app!!

  • Internship student for mental health counseling
    by TigerTyrone on 2018-12-03 at 4:10 AM

    Excellent study tool I found it to be a great refresher of information

  • Good tool
    by vinillasweetpea on 2018-11-26 at 10:55 AM

    This is an awesome tool to help with getting your mindset ready for testing.

  • Excellent study tool
    by TianaMc on 2018-11-13 at 12:58 PM

    I wouldn’t recommend using this ALONE, however this was an excellent help. I passed!

    I’ve increased my knowledge much more....... I just knew the know but I’d trouble applying it & difficulty with differences in vocabulary

  • buggy
    by LisaTheBoss on 2018-10-19 at 9:18 PM

    The app is great when I can actually use it. It tends to quit on me, not allow me to take practice exams, and refresh my user data.

  • It WAS great
    by M_W17 on 2018-10-19 at 1:34 AM

    Then the app moved SUUUUUUPER slow the more I used it and would kick me off an log me out mid quiz. It is helpful when preparing for the test, it’s just irritating (especially after paying for it) that it moves so slow.

  • I’m about to freaking scream
    by Christavia Z. on 2018-08-10 at 11:21 PM

    The app updated today after I bought it and now it doesn’t work. I test Tuesday. I’m calling for a refund. It was perfect before today.

  • CPCE
    by Paigethegreates on 2018-07-14 at 12:18 AM

    I passed my exam using this app daily. It was help to see my progress after taking a test. The test taking technique also helped me reduce my anxiety while taking the CPCE.

    by Fitnikki on 2018-06-12 at 5:12 PM

    So I work a lot between my full time job and part time job! This app let me study on the go and was super helpful. I passed the first time around using just this app!

  • I Passed!!
    by cryonce on 2018-05-22 at 2:31 AM

    This APP helped me get familiar with the style of questions that would be seen on the NCE. I was able to study anywhere and it covered the CACREP content areas. I recommend using this APP in addition to your study materials as an effective and convenient study tool. Thank you!

  • Awesome study guide!

    So thankful for this comprehensive review!
