Is the free trial really free?

Absolutely free - no credit card required. Just sign up and you'll get access to our platform and the first chapters of the content for each test, no strings attached. Other programs require you to pay blindly before seeing what you're buying, and that's not cool. We're confident that our courses speak for themselves.

What are the system or browser requirements?

Achievable works on all major browsers, including smartphone browsers. Adobe Flash is not required.

Can I use Achievable on my smartphone or tablet?

We've built Achievable to be mobile-first, and about half of all studying on our platform is done on-the-go. Spending five minutes here-and-there on your commute, during lunch, in-bed, etc. really adds up as you're studying, and we want to help you make the best use of your time. There's no need to download an app - just browse to https://app.achievable.me on your device and sign in normally. All your progress is synced up so you'll always pick up where you left off.

What if I have questions that are not answered by your test material?

Our content is written by experienced subject matter experts and follows the test outline(s) provided by the test providers. We follow a 99% approach: in certain cases we may omit that 1% of content that is unlikely to be tested but takes a lot of time and effort to learn. That said, if you feel we can go into more detail in a particular area or if there's a more clear way to present the content, we're always open to feedback.

How does the guaranteed pass refund work?

As you study on Achievable, we use learning science to create a model of your memory. This allows us to create very accurate estimates of what you know and how you'll score on the exam, before you take it. It's still up to you to decide when you feel ready, and sometimes we haven't prepared as much as we wish we could have. Regardless, if you've studied with us but didn't pass your pass/fail exam, we'll honor the refund, no questions asked. All you need to do is send us a picture of your exam scores along with a valid state ID, and once we've verified the documents, we'll issue the refund.

How does the GRE score guarantee work?

Please visit our score guarantee page for more information.

Does Achievable offer refunds on other score-based (not pass-fail) exams?

Achievable currently only offers refunds on pass/fail exams and the GRE. However, if you do not feel satisfied with your purchase, please contact us.

How can I get a refund for another reason?

We know that life can get in the way, so any other refunds will be awarded on a case-by-case basis. We do our best to be accommodating, so if something comes up, just reach out to us.

How long do I have access to the site and materials?

Achievable accounts last forever and are free forever. When you purchase a license for a particular exam program, your premium access is valid for one year, unless otherwise stated. Study schedules differ by person, but rarely last more than a few months for any of the exams we offer.

Can I share my account with a friend?

We strongly recommend that you keep your account to yourself, for your own sake. Since the Achievable method and learning algorithms are based on your individual memory strengths and weaknesses, the effectiveness of the site will be greatly decreased if an account is shared.

Do you have an affiliate program?

Yes, please email us at hello@achievable.me and let us know a bit about your audience.

Can I use the same Achievable account for multiple exams?

Yes, you should use the same Achievable account for multiple exams. We offer substantial discounts for being a loyal customer.

Can I select the topic of my review questions?

Yes, you can select the topic of your reviews by clicking the sliders icon in the top right corner of the review quiz start screen.

How close are your practice exams to the real test?

Our practice exams are specifically built to mimic the real question phrasing, difficulty, and weighting of the actual test. While each exam may differ, in general we provide a very accurate representation of what the real test will look like.

Do you provide tutoring services?

Achievable does not provide tutoring services ourselves, but many of our authors are professional tutors. You can learn more about their tutoring services on our about page.

Do you sell access to practice exams or review questions separately?

No, we keep it simple: Achievable is an all-in-one study program. No need to wade through a menu of confusing options. One price includes everything you need.

Are the practice exams different every time?

Yes. Our practice exams are randomized and pull from a large bank of questions, making sure to add the right amount of each type to match the weighting of the actual exam. While our question banks vary per exam, they are generally so large that you can take a dozen tests without seeing duplicate questions. And on top of that, many of our practice exam questions are built with randomized numbers so you master the underlying concept of math problems, rather than recognizing the correct answer when seeing the question a second time.

When is [exam] going to be released?

We’re always building programs for new exams. If you don’t see the exam you’re looking for in our catalog, contact us and let us know you’d like us to carry it. This is great information to help us prioritize which course to build next. Maybe you'll be lucky and can get early access to it :-)

What is the best way to study using Achievable?

Achievable’s memory-based algorithms are most effective when you log in and complete your reviews every day. Of course, we realize that you probably have a life and other things to do besides study, and it's ok if you aren't able to perfectly follow the schedule. Our learning engine is smart enough to handle it whenever you study and adjusts accordingly. That said, the closer you can get to making a daily habit of Achievable, the more effective it will be and the less time it will take you to complete the course.

Does the course include videos?

Most Achievable courses have supplementary videos sprinkled throughout the textbook material to reinforce crucial concepts or offer a more visual explanation of a complicated topic. This is not a video course.
