Good refresher
I agree with several other reviewers that it could be more challenging. But it was a valuable refresher and reduced the ground time I would have spent with a CFII.

It was OK. Needed more video.
They indicate an "AREA FORECAST" still exists. They say it was an up to date group of video. Not so. Not enough depth and breadth to be a real IPC review. All that said I like it.

Good General overview
I'm a rusty instrument pilot. After 18 years I'm back in the cockpit and now am working to remember instruments. this was a good general overview but didn't cover what I would want to make me feel comfortable shooting an approach again. It's missing those details you forget about with charts and approach plates.

Some info out of date
Some of the info in the course is out of date, as well I expected something much more thorough and in depth for this price. This is a course that is maybe worth $10

Not enough of a challenge.
The course was well laid out, but the content was weak and too simple. Questions were too easy and do not match up to the demands of real world instrument flying. Coming away from the course with a high score may make some feel good, but I felt I did not get challenged and therefore did not get value from the course.

Excellent course but missing downloadable study materials.
It is a comprehensive course and covers all the bases. It is well presented and interesting with excellent graphics and video. The downside for me is that it does not come with any downloadable study materials or outlines. With that the course would have been complete. That said it was a great help to me in brushing up in preparation for my long overdue IPC. Thank you Sporty's.
