Publisher's Summary

Memorizing answers is hard - and boring. Learning is easy!

If you've made the decision to open up your ham radio world by going for the General Class license, great! General is certainly more challenging than Technician, but The Fast Track to Your General Class Ham Radio License explains the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer on the General Class exam so you'll understand and remember the subject matter.

Created by an experienced ham and adult educator, it's like having your own, patient, experienced, good-humored mentor for the exam.

To get your General Class license, you must pass a multiple-choice test. The General license test consists of 35 questions drawn from a pool of 462. Memorizing the answers to 462 disconnected questions is difficult, but The Fast Track makes getting your upgrade easier by explaining the logic behind each correct answer. It's simple: When you understand the material, and you have a context for the material, you remember the answers and pass the test.

Best of all, once you've passed your exam you'll have a solid grounding in ham radio basics.

  • Includes every possible question and every answer
  • Correct answers clearly marked in bold
  • Precise instructions for how to locate a testing session, how to prepare, and even what to bring - and what not to bring - to the test
  • All technical topics explained in clear, plain language
  • Step-by-step instructions to solve all the math problems
  • Test taking strategies
  • Hints to easily solve many questions and avoid the traps in the test
  • Written in "learning order", not just the order of the official question bank
  • Covers questions that will be used until June 30, 2019

Magnificent!!

I started out listening to "The Fast Track to Your Technician....I did exactly as he suggested, found a test sight the first day I started listing and committed to that date. It gave me three weeks. Passing practice exams at 93% with two weeks to go, I decided to go for the General license. So I got this audio. I just passed both tests. These audios were awesome.

This is the one to get! Kudos to the Author!

These audio books (and ebook) are simply awesome and my favorite way to study for FCC tests. I purchased his technician audio book and pass with flying colors. I'm now studying for my General and the first thing I did was to search for his General Class fast track book! The author reads and is very entertaining and explains things VERY well without going into mind numbing, sleep inducing detail that other books and videos do. If you are studying for your general get this without hesitation!

Passed all 3!

I used Michael Burnette’s courses and passed all 3 exams in one day. Michael presents the right amount of information: enough to understand the answer to the test questions and the “why” behind them, but not so much to overwhelm the listener.
Great intro to amateur radio.

Excellent Guide

I enjoyed it very much. Provides some context, so that it isn't just a bunch of boring facts.

Really great

Michael does a great job of making the material interesting by providing history and context for each question. It really makes the material more memorable to have real life examples and historical information surrounding it. Thank you, Michael.

Excellent

This recording should be mandatory studying for the general exam. Well presented, concise and redundant to enhance memory retention. I can't endorse this enough!! I will be taking my general in 7 days and I know I'll pass when this help. I'm anxiously waiting for the amateur extra audiobook !!

Worth every penny.

Michael does not only prepare you for the exam - he gives you the background so you understand the answers. I listened to this audio book driving to and from work. It made the tedious Atlanta commute enjoyable and it prepared me for the exam. It was a lot of fun listening to Michael. I scored a 35 out of 35 on my General. I also had his Technician audio book and had a perfect score on that one as well. So glad that I found Michael's audiobooks.

Great way to learn the material

I was originally licensed as a Technician in 1999. I had some years of inactivity and then got back into the hobby a couple years ago. I stumbled across the author's Technician book and used it to help me get back up to speed.

I had hoped that he would also create a General book, but I ended up getting impatient and studied using a different method (I used a website that helps you just memorize the correct answers). Then, 2 days before I was planning to take the test, I discovered that he had made this book. So I listened to it as much as I could, took and passed the test, and then kept listening so I could understand all the questions and answers that I had memorized.

This is a terrific book for learning the material. I can't recommend it highly enough. I've since also passed the Extra test, but am looking forward to the Extra book so I can learn everything I memorized for that, as well. ;)
