Well ,made the journey over the hump bright and early for the study and test.
Kudos to Steve and Crew !!
I was the only one signed up and derived the benefits of that knowledgeable group.
Had taken the time to use the online self study/self testing guides for about four weeks prior.
That,and the study class (four hours) enabled me to pass the Technician test with a good score.
At their urging I pressed on and took a swing at the General test, with no exposure /study I hit a little under half the right answers.
My study guides for General and Extra have been on order for about a week now,shipped yesterday. And I feel confident that with the same study/test protocol I used for the Tech prep I should have the same outcome when I retake the General test.
Looking forward to the hump again soonest !

Again, Thanks Guys !!!!!

Was a pleasure meeting ya, check the FCC ULS site along about Friday, your call sign could be there as early as that.
Holler if you have questions about the general or extra material, radio's (YAESU!) Or getting on the air.

Dusty, Send me a PM with your e-mail and I can send you the current question pool , diagrams, etc. it's free on the ARRL web page. If the book you have doesn't say it is for the Technician class question pool valid from 1 July 2014 through 30 June 2018, then it is out of date and won't do you any good.

Hey @NYECOGunsmith can you post a link to the current exam questions? I have the ones you sent me maybe 18 months ago, but I want to make sure they're still correct.

Thanks

edit: is this it? http://ncvec.org/downloads/2014-2018%20Tech%20Pool.pdf

Default Current Link To ARRL Technician Class Question Pool

Sure, I can do that...............you gotta dollar?

The current question pool for the Technician Class License is good from 1 July 2014 through 30 June 2018.

It can be found at:

http://ncvec.org/page.php?id=362

Page looks like this:
2014-2018 FCC Element 2 Technician Class Question Pool.doc
2014-2018 FCC Element 2 Technician Class Question Pool.txt
2014-2018 FCC Element 2Technician Class Question Pool.pdf

2014-2018 FCC Element 2 Technician Class Question Pool Graphics Only.doc
2014-2018 FCC Element 2 Technician Class Question Pool Graphics Only.pdf
2014-2018 FCC Element 2 Technician Class Question Pool Graphics Only.jpg

Graphic T-1.jpg
Graphic T-2.jpg
Graphic T-3.jpg

I suggest downloading the .doc versions, going through them the first time, and erasing the three incorrect answers, leaving only the correct answer, then study the questions and just the correct answer.
The correct answer is shown in parenthesis just above each question, immediately following the question number. DO NOT memorize the letter that indicates the correct answer, it will be different on the real exam!

Remember to also download the THREE schematic drawings for the question pool!

The General Class Question Pool is valid from 1 July 2015 through 30 June 2019, and can be found at this URL:

http://ncvec.org/page.php?id=364

You want the file that looks like this:
February 11, 2015 FINAL REVISED 2015-2019 General Class Question Pool 2-11-2015.doc and the schematic .....
2015 G7-1 Diagram

Same thing applies to the General and Extra class pools, use the Word.doc form, and study just the correct answers.

The Extra Class question pool, valid from 1 July 2016 through 30 June 2020, is found at:
http://www.ncvec.org/page.php?id=365

And you want these two files, the questions and the diagrams

2016-2020 Amateur Extra Class Question Errata Pool with 2nd Errata.doc
2016-2020 Amateur Extra Class Question Pool Diagrams.pdf

Any questions, drop me a note.

Can't tell if that is it or not, since it doesn't show the revision level or the dates through which it is valid. Best to just download a fresh copy of the current one I think.

I've been trying to use this study guide and man.. I cant take it any more. Talk about dry.

https://www.kb6nu.com/wp-content/upl...-guide-v20.pdf

I think I'll back to just memorizing the answers as suggested. I was looking for a more comprehensive/concept based approach (I like to know the "whys and hows"), but that aint it!!
