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.

Pleasantly surprised with this course
I was thoroughly satisfied with this course. As a flight and ground instructor I have used courses from other major providers. Honestly, I was very surprised by the quality of the content of this course. Excellent in every respect. Great job!

A very nice refresher
I enjoyed this course very much. It's been about five years since I've been IFR current, and this course, and the final quiz, has been a big help getting me back into it. I'd recommend it to everyone!

Great refresher with an excellent video presentation.
Excellent course and very well presented. It brought me up to speed for my IPC. It is not only superior to other online courses but also more reasonably priced. My only complaint is that they limit you to the number of times you can take it and you can’t keep it for future reference.

Information is solid, overall value not so much
First and for most, this is an easy to use, almost fun way to refresh your instrument knowledge before heading into an IPC. The information is all current and up to date as of 2015, and its just like all the other sporty's vids; a new school take on an old school idea of pilot training videos with your host, Rob Reider. What I have a problem with is that this is online course is not truly the same as the older Sporty's DVDs where once you bought them, they were yours and you could watch them as many times as you wished. With this course there is set limit to the number of videos within the course you can watch before you get a pup up saying your not allowed to watch anymore. Now, it is quite a few times, I was probably able to watch the entire course front to back at least 2 or 3 times and there are about 2.5 hours of vids (skip the intro it should save you a vid view and its not pertinent to the rest of the course) and that might be just enough for most people to get them ready for their IPC, I just think that this is a bad road for Sporty's to be going down where instead of having access to the information forever and worrying about purchasing updated material as it comes out, they are now putting a set limit on the number of times you can gather that information. Word to the wise, if your going to use this course make sure your paying attention, taking notes and possibly skip the topics you know you don't need any refresher on so that way you can re-watch what you actually need as many times as you can until the course decides that you've had enough information and cuts you off.
