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

  • Hints to easily solve many questions and avoid the traps in the test

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.

I just passed my General exam. Thank you!!!! Without the audio and paperback books it would have been so much more difficult. I can't say thank you enough for putting them together.

Another helpful study aid

I listened to this audio book as a study aid for the General exam. I had previously used Burnette’s Fast Track to Technician and knew I’d be in good hands. He not only teaches you the right answer but he teaches you why. I found the last chapter in this book (the grand review) very helpful! Even though I passed my General exam, I’ll be listening to this book again. I also already bought his Fast Track to Extra so I can start on that endeavor.

fantastic audio coverage and explanation

Fantastic coverage of the material for the general class amateur radio license. Michael helps provide explanations for all questions with hints for memorization and mnemonics where necessary. His excellent sense of humor also makes it much easier to focus throughout the more tedious sections.

excellently done. this is how to study for your te

...your test. as well as actually learn the material- imagine that! the kb6nu books are very succinct & clean, but the down-to- earth, common sense manner in which Mike explains the concepts & answers makes it comprehensible, which is the best way to remember. even mixes in humor somehow. thanks! soon to be KG7VQI/AG
