Private Pilot Exam Preparation

brought to you by
taught by Steve Pomroy

Writing exams an essential step in education -- a process that we all need to go through. Exams or tests are usually a rite of passage to the next level in your learning. Specifically, multiple-choice questions can be tricky -- with answers that all look correct, or worse, all look incorrect. Even numerical answers can be very misleading and soon you may find yourself stressed and confused.

In our PPL Exam Prep course, we use aviation knowledge as a playground to introduce you to various multiple-choice question mechanics and test writing strategies that work. Using these strategies will make you more confident in your selected answers and may lead to higher grades overall. The strategies offered in the course can be applied to any subject matter. This is a very intriguing course, enroll now and we will see you in the course.

After covering exam and question structure, the course covers over 120 demonstrated Private Pilot practice questions. These questions are supplemented with 110 assigned practice problems so you can practice multiple-choice strategy and get more familiar with PPL-level content.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a groundschool course! It is a post-groundschool exam-prep course. The goal is to build test-taking skills so that the exam structure doesn't interfere with your knowledge on test day.
