Description

The Fast Track To Your Technician Class Ham Radio License 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 350. Memorizing the answers to 350 questions is difficult, but The Fast Track makes it easier by explaining the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer. It's simply: When you understand 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, most with illustrations
- Step by step instructions to solve all the math problems, complete with exactly which keys to press on your calculator for each problem
- 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.

    Burnette’s writing style is to present the test question, then provide the correct answer and brief explanation. My preference would be to provide information on the topic first, then give the test question. So many times I had to flip ahead to the discussion, then go back and answer the question. Perhaps that’s the best style to prepare for the test, but it occassionally left me flustered having to flip ahead, then back. There are a couple of questions with the wrong answer. The one I remember concerned the safety precautions when putting up an antenna. Michael, if you read the reviews, you might want to fix this answer. All in all, an easy read with enough information to make your head explode. Should I wait until I take the test until I pass judgement on the book? If I pass, I’ll come back and up my review to 5 stars.
  • Excellent!!
