I am less enthusiastic about over-presentation of material that distracts from clarity of understanding. For example, in the front of the book (1-2, repeated half-size on 3-7) is a Frequency Allocation Chart (also available on their web site) with a diagram of the bands, frequencies and modes. Because it's the generic diagram, it includes a lot of superfluous information such as the restrictions for Novice and Advanced licenses -- both deprecated in 2000 (15 years ago!) -- as well as changes enacted a couple of years ago. As a result, the chart is dense and less useful than it could be in this setting. It would have been super helpful if they included ONLY the bands usable with General privileges. With the extra room, they could add supplemental information relevant to several of the questions on the exam: power restrictions, sideband use, and relative position of data vs voice.
Further, the format (the tables and pictures) are unreadable on Kindle edition.
Another miss by the ARRL. Along with the digital QST debacle - I wondering who is running what should be one of the preeminent technology related organizations in the country, which seems to continually show it cannot master tech.
I tried another book by "Gordo" because it was recommended by a friend, but I found that just looking at the test material and the answers was not sufficient for my way of study. Yes, the ARRL manual reads like a text book, but with my college experience I just used the method of highlighting and page marking that helped me through school. If you want to just look at the questions and memorize answers then there are much cheaper books to buy, but again I didn't focus on pure memorization to pass the test.
