I have only one minor complaint that is not a show stopper. I wish the book came spiral bound instead of perfect bound or was at least offered in a spiral bound option. While perfect bound is more durable and not subject to pages coming loose and falling out, the book does not lie flat on the desk and it makes it a bit difficult for me to cover the answers as I study. Otherwise I think the book is great.
Update 1: I took the element 1 and 8 exams today (I want to focus exclusively on element 3 next without worrying about the other elements) and passed both with 100%. Using this book in combination with practice sites on the web is a great way to learn the material. I want to not only know the answers but the reason for the answers and that is where this book comes in. Frankly, if you just want to know the answers and not the theory behind the answer then this book is probably not for you. But if you want to know the formulas and the reasons a particular answer is correct then this is the book to get. I expect to post another update once I pass element 3.
Update 2: I took element 3 in November 2014 and passed with a 99 out of 100. The one question I missed I actually got right on my scratch paper but I selected the wrong letter answer on the test sheet. The proctor commented to me that I was one of the best prepared testers she had ever had. I highly recommend this book.
The book itself is formatted poorly. You really can't look at the questions without seeing the correct answer. If they had put the correct answer in the margin, you could cover the answers with a piece of paper as you work through the book. Or, if they had put the correct answer down a line or two below the last sample answer, you could have covered it similarly. As it is, the "A" (or B or C or D) is on the same line as the last sample answer and it is jammed right up against the end of the sentence.
I didn't really want the software, but since you can't use the book to test your knowledge, I had to go ahead and get it.
The ideal package would be the "Plain-English Study Guide for the General Radiotelephone Operator License" plus printed flash cards for the test questions, but that doesn't exist.
If you are wondering, it does not go in depth about any antenna theory/transmission line design, but it will give you enough for an understanding of what is required for the exams.
The only question he missed was one that was in this updated version of the book.
He had studied from the old version we had gotten, some years back, when he went for his FCC GROL
He is very happy with the book post test... and looking forward to reading up on some of the things that are in it
that had not been in the older version.
