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.

Great for auditory Learners!

I'm an auditory learner , studying a book for hours on end and memorizing questions is something i simply can't do!

This book was perfect for me , I passed my general class exam with no worries AT ALL!

Next Audible credit I get will go to his Extra class book!

Great learning tool!!!

I have achieved my technician license and general license in the same month. I enjoyed the technician course so much I also purchased the General course. This audio has been a great help for learning and to getting me to my goals! I could listen through my blue tooth while working . The author does great job explaining material and throws in some humor I appreciate;) The appendix review and chapter reviews were of great help too. I not only wanted to pass test but I also wanted to learn about ham radio. This helps you with both. I also purchased the paper copy to study while at home. It is very helpful with math part. Thanks for your great work Mr. Burnette!
