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.

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

Excellent

This audio book is very well thought out and composed. The author's progression is logical and easy to follow. The most important aspect of this book (learning) is facilitated because of how the author relates information into practical context, making the concepts much more understandable.

Passed!

I used this audiobook as my primary source of study. I did do practice exams online and look up some of the formulas but this audiobook helped me achieve 100% on my exam after studying for one week

Fantastic!

What a great resource. I drive over an hour and a half every day and have been listening to this. Michael is amazing at helping you know why answers are right or wrong. Some answers have to be memorized, but most are either understanding the logic or just plain common sense! I haven't taken the official test yet, because I've decided to take both the General and Extra at the same session, but I've taken the online test about 20 times and passed with flying colors every time.
I HIGHLY recommend this if you want to pass your tests and really understand the material.
