Extra Class Study Materials

My father-in-law loaned me this, so I could study for my Extra Class exam.

Maybe if I pass, I can reward myself by buying some new gear.

Ham Study Guides

I think I've pointed them out before, but I have a friend who is tempted by ham radio, so I will link to the the KB6NU study guides again. PDF versions are free, but paid versions are available for Kindle and Nook.

Free study guides, inexpensive exam fee, free Echolink, and inexepensive rigs... add it up and it is like the package a dealer gives you to get you hooked.

"Extra" Special License

A discussion about the value of the Extra class license.
"Second, I don’t think many people can go through that memorization process without learning something. I have a friend who always claims that he passed the Extra test by memorizing all of the answers. He’s just playing dumb, though. He knows a lot more than he gives himself credit for, and I think that you’ll find the same thing is true for the clods who claim to have passed by simply memorizing the answers."
I'm not sure how much I learned as I passed my Tech and General in less than about six months. I have to agree that I learned something. The "doing" will teach me more than the studying ever did, but you have to start somewhere.
