Review of "ATPL Aviation Meteorology (PC)"
I have undertaken the hugely daunting task of doing two courses at once: my university degree and my professional pilot training. My blog & web: thewebpilot.blogspot.co.uk www.merryfaceaviation.com
I have been having quite a bit of difficulty with my preparation for my Meteorology ATPL exam so I needed to do something desperate. There were no weekend courses available for meteorology so I decided to turn to technology.Oxford Aviation Academy are well known throughout the world for their top class training facilities and record high pass rates. That's why I decided that if I were to spend a lot of money on extra virtual tuition, it would be from them.
They claim that the CD is an interactive course teaching the ATPl meteorology syllabus. Instead I found myself confronted with a cheaply programmed software that gives simple animations of the course content with a voice over, and a handful of questions form the question bank. This nonsense for £65!Now to be fair the information is extremely well presented and well explained. It's still nevertheless just an animated textbook from my point of view. I was expecting it to have interactive tools to help you understand the information, instead it just presents it to you.
If you don't have a textbook or anything to learn it from then I would reccomend this software.if however, you are looking for some way to help you study, this isn't the software for you. It really really isn't.
I gave it two stars simply because of the misguidance in the use of the words 'interactive software' and the lack of features it offers for its exorbitant price. A better description would be 'a set of virtual lessons of the syllabus.'It seems severely overpriced for such hastily created software.
