McMillan Study Guides gives three lucky winners their choice of prizes, including an HP® Envy and iPad® 2.

McMillan Study Guides Inc., the premier publisher of self-study materials for US Air Force members, today announced the winners of their GOLD MINE Sweepstakes’ second-quarter drawing.

Grand prize winner, SSgt Jarrod Nave of RAF Lakenheath, UK, won a high-performance Windows® laptop and a copy of McMillan’s best-selling PDG GOLD software. First prize winner, SSgt Zachary Cooper of Eglin Air Force Base, FL, selected an iPad® 2 with McMillan’s new all-in-one PDG Suite study app. The second prize went to TSgt Robert Wagner from Spangdahlem AB, GE, who chose an iPod touch® with McMillan’s new MP3 AudioBooks.

“McMillan Study Guides has one of the best software programs I have ever used,” said SSgt Nave. “I recommend PDG GOLD to all my troops and friends who are testing for their next rank.” SSgt Cooper added, “I used PDG GOLD to make SSgt the first time because it perfectly caters to my learning style.”

Since 2007, McMillan has awarded 54 Airmen with prizes totaling more than $50,000 through their GOLD MINE Sweepstakes. Each prize package gives winners the option of a Windows or Mac product, and a complimentary McMillan study guide, to encourage Airmen to use their new device while preparing for test day.

“Our GOLD MINE Sweepstakes give enlisted Airmen the chance to win great prizes for leisure and study. Together with our guides, Airmen can transform their new laptop, tablet or MP3 player into a powerful study tool,” explained Gayle McMillan Smith, president of McMillan Study Guides Inc.

Airmen who purchase and activate McMillan’s PDG GOLD or Master Your CDC software are automatically entered into the sweepstakes. Enlisted Air Force personnel may also enter without purchase. For complete sweepstakes rules, visit McMillan’s website at
