The way I used them was to read the text, go immediatly to the associated questions in each section and try to answer the questions, and look up the place in the text where the information needed to answer the question was presented and highlight it with a marker. That allowed me to read back through the text material for review and take specific notice of the most relevant points (for test taking purposes) of the material. This made taking the actual exams a cinch. Others say they prefer the Gorden West series' question-oriented teaching style, and maybe it works well for them, but it is hard to argue with the results we have achieved with these ARRL materials, and some bit of the publishing profits will help fund the ARRL, which is a Good Thing.
All the manuals in this series include the printed questions in the current test pool, which is probably a cheaper way to get them on paper to study than printing them on your inkjet or laser printer.
Use this book, along with Gordon West's "Technician Class" book, and you're all set to pass the exam. I passed my exam with flying colors doing just that.
Book ships fast - good luck in becoming a Ham Radio Operator.
The technician test is not too technical, no electrical circuits or attenna design type questions. The test is more operating procedure, permitted operating frequencies, permitted wattages and attenna heights.
If you want to stay on the local voice repeaters, packet radio, or internet protocols on the 2m, 1.25m, 70cm and the other permitted bands; a technician's license is all you need.
