McMillan Study Guides gives three lucky winners their choice of prizes, including an Apple™ MacBook® Pro 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’ third-quarter drawing.

Grand prize winner, SrA Brandon Alvarez of Key West, FL, won a high-performance MacBook® Pro laptop and a copy of McMillan’s best-selling PDG GOLD software. First prize winner, SrA David Tierney of Dayton, OH, selected an iPad® 2 with McMillan’s new all-in-one PDG Suite study app. The second prize went to SSgt Joseph Arnold of RAF Mildenhall, UK, who chose an iPod touch® with McMillan’s MP3 AudioBooks.

“PDG GOLD is a great tool to study for your promotion test,” said SrA Alvarez. “I highly recommend it to everyone!” SrA Tierney added, “The games and features make everyday studying a blast!”

Since 2007, McMillan has awarded 57 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 are just one more way we give back to those who serve. Together with our guides, these Airmen can make the most of their new laptop, tablet or MP3 player,” 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
