Publisher's Summary

Memorizing 400+ random answers is hard. Learning is easy! The Fast Track to Your Technician Ham Radio License explains the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer on the amateur radio 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.

Technician is the entry-level ham radio license that lets you operate on all ham channels from 30 MHz up, which includes the very popular VHF and UHF bands. To get your license, you must pass a multiple-choice test.

The technician license test consists of 35 questions drawn from a pool of about 400. Memorizing the answers to 400 questions is difficult, but The Fast Track makes getting your license easy by explaining the logic behind each correct answer, and by arranging the questions, so they form a logical progression toward mastery of the material.

It's simple: When you understand the subjects, 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.

Wonderful combining audiobook and paperback

I passed my Technician exam after a week and a few days of cramming this stuff into my head both with the audiobook and the paper back. I think this is a winning combination. I wouldn't have ever guessed I'd want to keep going but... I enjoyed the process so much I'm moving on to his General licence study guide and audiobook! this is a seriously great example of how test prep should be produced! Thank you Mr Burnette you make it fun

super informative

Have been contemplating getting my license for several years but have always been overwhelmed by the study guides. This audio version was great. Kept me engaged and after taking a practice exam about half way through, against Burnette's advice, I had doubled my baseline score from 3 days earlier and was almost in the passing range. Excited to see how I do now. Also enjoyed it so much I am about to start The Fast Track To Your General Class Ham Radio License. Thanks AF7KB! Love the YouTube videos also.

Just what I needed!

I was hesitant to even get this audio book at first. I wasn't sure how well it would translate to just audio.
However, I also knew that I don't have much free time to sit and read all the information required to take my HAM Radio Technician's license exam.

Totally glad I got this!

The author is also the narrator and is clear, educational, and occasionally humorous.

Just by listening to it over the past 2 weeks, (to and from work, doing laundry, dishes, etc.) I was able to learn enough that I feel confident taking my exam next month.

If I can update this review later, I'll let you know of I passed. :-)

Best Ham study guide!

if you want to study for your Technician class ham license and dont have a lot of time you can devote to reading, this is an excellent, effective, entertaining and. yes, even amusing way to acquire the information you will need. Michael reads the questions, gives you the answers and then explains why the right answer is the correct one. A very good way to help with retention of pretty dry material. Highly recommended by this Technician class student.
