About Pocket Prep

Since 2011, Pocket Prep has led the mobile test prep category with our portable learning, smart feedback, and affordable programs. Our small, but growing, bi-coastal team is dedicated to providing the most effective, convenient and engaging test prep for more than 100 standardized exams.

We care about people passing exams because we’ve been there. Co-founders Ken Gillette and Peter Murphy faced expensive, high-stakes tests for career-promoting professional credentials while they were co-workers at Lockheed Martin. Like tens of thousands of other Americans, they shelled out hundreds of dollars to register and buy the paraphernalia they thought would improve their chances of passing. After hauling textbooks, flashcards, and study guides to costly test-prep classes, they founded Pocket Prep to more effectively and inexpensively help people prepare for important assessments.
