Extra Exam – Study

Today I took my first practice test for the Extra Class examination.  I plan on studying now so that I can take my Extra Class exam and pass it when I go to the Dayton Hamvention in May.  As you can see from my first practice test, I didn’t do so well (CALL IN THE FAIL! WHALE)

I am studying for the Extra Class exam using Hamtestonline.com, and also using a study guide that was made by Jack Tiley AD7FO.  I think so far this is working fairly well even though I only got a 52% on my first practice test, I have only been studying for the past two days with diligence.

I used this same method to take and pass my General Class exam back in 2008, so as long as I spend at least an hour per day studying I should have no problem when the time comes to take my Extra at Dayton.

Taking an Amateur Radio examination at the Dayton Hamvention is free, however there is usually a bit of a wait since there are so many upgrading and potential new Amateurs taking the tests.

I will continue with my studies, but I would appreciate any motivational, test tips or other good advise you could provide me in the comments below. 🙂

    • Thanks Jeff. Im working hard on it. The math is what’s hard for me. I am terrible at math, so some of the questions that depend on it are really tough for me.
