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.

educational and enjoyable

I used this to study for my technicians licence and now my general. I put it on while I sleep and then listen to the last chapter that just has the info while I drive and do other things. I've learned a lot from both and when I study for my extra license, you bet I'll have the next book. He put in little funny bits that keep your interest, he doesn't read in a monotone voice, I highly recommend this if you want to study for your general license and learn rather than just study to pass the test.
