Go for it. You will be glad you did
Since the other review for this is so horrible, I'm going to go ahead and write one even though I've only used this simulator for about 2 weeks. I'll update as I learn more.
First off let me say that I am an electrician and also a student of industrial process control. So if you are anything along those lines from apprentice to engineer than this is going to be a good purchase for you. If you are not familiar with the function of ladder logic and the associated items that work with it then this is a good way to figure it out.
This product comes with programs for both function block and ladder logic. I am not at all familiar with function block right now so I wont comment on that portion.
You will need to understand the functions of the icons before beginning and they are all in the instruction manual that is included on the CD. The instruction manual is pretty decent and it does a good job of explaining what icons are what but you will have to take the time to read it carefully so that when you get into the simulator you are not confused by all the icons and how to address them.
This is a great setup for learning the basics but if you want to get to the "programmer" level then I would suggest taking a PLC class along with this to learn some of the more common programs like RSlogix, Siemens and Omron. For my purposes which is simply to learn the basics of PLC programming the simulator is an excellent choice for only 20 dollars.
If you do decide to buy this simulator and it works out for you or doesn't for that matter, please leave a real review and don't be one of those knuckleheads that only writes about how fast it got to you and the condition of the package. Were all trying to learn something here and that doesn't do any good for anyone

I tried it. Don't.
This is a primitive program. It's one redeeming feature is it's "cheap". The documentation is poor. There are better products out there for just a little more money. Look at EZ PLC as an example.
