As you might have seen, there are a couple of DLAB Study Guides on the market. Each one claims to be a complete guide that will help you score higher on the DLAB, however, which one is worth the money and which one will really help you the most? So, to answer your questions, we have started our own DLAB Study Guide Book review section so as to give everyone an in-depth and unbiased opinion on each of the DLAB Study Guides on the market and we assure you, we bought each and every one of them which was pretty expensive. To kick off our reviews, we would like to start with our “Editor’s Choice”, the Best DLAB Study Guide: Practice Test and More.
We don’t know much about the author, Dennis Rodgers; however, after reading his book, the Best DLAB Study Guide Practice Test and More, we have concluded that he must know what he is talking about.
The book is very clear, concise and very informative. It will help all types of future test takers to include the ones that haven’t read any of the other posts on this site or those who have already taken the test.
Of the four, this study guide offers the most information. To help you, we have included some of the more important specs to the book and what you can expect if you were to decide to purchase it:
- 88 Pages of pertinent information that we have vetted to be correct
- A Complete Practice Test to include all sections
- Explanations to go with each answer inside the book
- Practice questions in each chapter
- A Grammar review section
- Comes in a Kindle Version
But what really makes this book stand completely apart from the others is its price. As of this writing, it is the cheapest on the market. And we aren’t talking about a couple of dollars but $20-$30 dollars cheaper. Just like the Official DLAB Training Manual, this guide is in the lowest price range and yet offers the most information.
What Others are Saying About it
Looking at amazon’s reviews, it looks like almost everyone agrees with our assessment of this book. Currently, having the highest satisfaction rating of 4.2, the Best DLAB Study Guide Practice Test and More continually is a best seller for its category. There are two negative reviews however, looking further, we have reason to believe they come from the author of the “DLAB Study Guide.” As it stands, the two negative reviews came from amazon readers that almost two years ago wrote negative reviews for the study guide “Defense Language Aptitude Battery” and at the same time wrote positive reviews for the “DLAB Study Guide.” Now as we all know, no one would take the test two years ago and then take it again and buy more study guides. Doesn’t make sense right? Yeah, we are that in-depth.
Where the Book Needs Improvement
As it stands, the Best DLAB Study Guide Practice Test and More is our top choice, however, there are some places that it could improve in the future.
- 1. The words corresponding to the pictures are too small and a little hard to read
- 2. In the practice exam, the writer should include hyperlinks to allow the reader to jump to the answer with a click of the button. As it stands now, the reader has to either write their answer down and check later or turn to the Answer Key each time to see if they were correct.
- 3. Does not have a paper copy, only an electronic version in the Kindle format
So Our Grade is?
This is the number one DLAB study guide on the market. It offers the most information and comes with a complete practice test and answer key. Furthermore, it is one of the cheapest thus making it our number one recommendation. If you are interested, you can buy it here.
