On how to pass the Amateur Radio exams

Join the club…

One more thing: Keep in mind that this study method is designed to teach you how to pass the exam only. Whether or not you learn anything is up to you.

Get yourself a fresh, unmarked, and printed copy of the question pool for the written test elements you need. You can print this off the internet or go buy a study guide that contains the current question pool. You can easily find such guides at Radio Shack or you can order from the ARRL, Gordon West, etc.

Make sure you have the appropriate correct answer list too.

FIRST: Read the very first question, think and understand precisely what it is that the question asks for
SECOND: Look up the correct answer letter (a, b, c, or d) and put a check mark next to that answer amongst the other choices.
THIRD: Read that correct answer and ONLY THAT CORRECT ANSWER!
DO NOT EVER, EVER, EVER, READ AN INCORRECT ANSWER!
FOURTH: It is so important and critical to your success that it bears repeating
DO NOT EVER, EVER, EVER, READ AN INCORRECT ANSWER!

FIFTH: Do the same thing with the second question and so on until you have read all of the questions in the entire pool and designated their correct answers.

Read the entire study guide –https://frrl.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/hamteststudyguide.pdf

Did anyone ever use this technique to get a college degree?  Or, perhaps a high school diploma?
