From the Author

"The bottom line is, be a success in whatever you choose to do with your life. People learn and grow as individuals and therefore need to find their own personalized system to achieve success. For me, making a career of the things I enjoy most was the only way to go. Lastly, remember that there is no substitute for studying diligently and effectively. Our ability to address the need for systematic, no-nonsense exam prep and study materials that get the job done right has contributed to the success of literally millions of accountants and pilots. It's fun to succeed and help others succeed."

When studying for the FAA Private Pilot written exam, you've got choices. You can grab a CFI and have him teach you the material, attend a weekend cram course, purchase a DVD/VHS study course, or use the Gleim prep book. Depending on your learning style, you should pick the one you think will work best.
This unique book contains the entire FAA written test pool with explanative answers. Each chapter focuses on a FAA requirement, presents the basic information you need to know, then the questions and answers are presented to the reader.
For students who like independent study, I think this is the way to go. Highly recommended.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David W. Groat on May 19, 2008
The FAA written test consists of 60 3-choice multiple choice questions that are pulled randomly from a bank of 600 standard questions. This book contains all 600 questions, the answers, and the answer explainations. Both my flying instructor and ground school teacher declared this book essential.

I really can't comment on the other study aids the previous reviewer mentioned, because this book was all I used for my FAA written. It's divided up into 11 chapters, each chapter starting with a brief summary of the important points covered in the test and followed by all the standard test questions on the subject. Systematic study of each chapter starting about a week before the test, coupled with free on-line practice tests [exams4pilots-dot-com] will almost guarantee a passing grade.

However, the purpose of this book is strictly to get you to pass the test. Each chapter begins with a warning stating that much more knowledge and information is necessary to fly safely. Everything that isn't specifically on the test is omitted. I passed on the first try with a 97%.

P.S. - This book is updated every year to reflect changes in the FAA testing material and proceedures. Make sure the one you're buying is at most a year old.

Obtaining an FAA Private Pilot's License requires:a) passing a medical exam; b) getting a passing score on a written, multiple-choice test; c) answering an examiner's oral test questions; d) successfully passing a flying test after practicing flying with an instructor and solo for typically 50 hours or so. This book can readily get you the memorization required to pass the written test. It's an excellent tool for that purpose.
Beyond that, Jeppesen "Private Pilot" provides the in-depth information that you will need. Finally, the FAR/AIM book of Federal Aviation Regulations and Aeronautical Instruction Manual will round out your basic Private-pilot preparation library.
