Amateur Extra

Well, I had a somewhat arbitrary goal of getting my Extra license before the current exam expired. Since I've not cracked a book in months, I'll miss that target. Too much three year old and too much running to have time for studying... maybe this winter.

  1. You may not need to crack any books open to prep for the upgrade ticket... I grabbed one of the free apps from the play store (if you have an android) and started looking at it every opportunity I had: On the train ride to and fro, 5 minutes just before bedtime, 5 minutes before the usual wake time, you get the picture. In about three weeks I saw every question in the pool and was able to answer enough of them correctly after another three weeks. Within 7 days of the exam I took some tests on the PC; I passed eight of ten practice sittings. Bottom line for me, from zero to pass it took six weeks. Of course YMMV, but isn't it worth a try?
