FSOT!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the long absence. I’ve been working on a personal project and this blog has, unfortunately, temporarily fallen by the wayside.

Some time ago, I took the FSOT (Foreign Service Officer Test – basically it’s the test you take to become a US diplomat) and thought that there was a dearth of (good) available material for studying. Since I didn’t find anything satisfactory outside of just browsing Wikipedia, I decided to write my own app. As most of you know, I’ve been teaching myself programming for a while now. Well, it’s finally culminated in this: FSOT!

Furthermore, I’ve also just started a new company, called TestPrevu. (There’s not much happening at that page right now, but hopefully that’ll change very soon.)

If you are currently preparing for this test and would like to have the ability to study and test, as well as knowing where you stand in comparison to other FSOT-testers, please have a look! No purchases required, promise!

I’m just starting out with this, so any comments or suggestions for improvements would be highly welcomed.

And, lest I forget, if you’ve already passed the FSOT in the past but currently know someone who’s preparing for it now, please let them know about this. You’ll have my thanks.

* Sorry. Only Android devices for now. 😦 I’ll look into developing for iOS if I magically get more requests for that.

  1. I’ve looked at your apps in the past and I have to say they always have nice design, I haven’t use them (to study) because I’m currently not learning anything they teach, but I would definitely recommend them to someone in the future or use them myself!

    I noticed your companies site has a open source code tab, are you planning on releasing code in the future? If so, that is awesome and I look forward to that!

    Good luck! I hope to see a lot of people using your apps 🙂

    • Thanks for the vote of confidence. 🙂 I forgot that you’re also into computer science. What’s your focus (if any)? Maybe we could collaborate on something. 🙂

      • I’m at my best in Java, it’s the only language I’ve coded a full GUI program in but I can do a lot of really nitty gritty code in C and extend it with Python.

        This summer I’m focusing on Ruby on Rails and mobile development, I’m making an app with some friends (nothing to do with language learning unfortunately!).

        I would love to collaborate! I don’t think their is anything as good as being able to put two hobbies/passions together (:
