Mr. Clem's book not only lives up to its title of being written in plain English, but it's also organized in a very logical manner with just the amount of detail needed to handle the test but not so much that it loses focus on its primary objective - helping the reader pass the test. To anyone who is able to resist believing that there is a strong relationship between test results and actual knowledge, this book is a great resource for getting past the test, getting the license, and then enjoying the real learning process. No, the book won't make you an expert on any aspect of ham radio, but it will certainly make it easy to get your general class license. It's well worth the price and the time it takes to read.
Study Notes Produced by KH6IR," the free Amateur Radio General License Class Syllabus" by Jack Tiley/AD7FO and an Android app called "Ham Test Prep" for drill. Clem's was my primary text, supplemented by the other books when necessary.
Each resource had its strengths and weaknesses. Clem was much less verbose than the ARRL General Class book, but also less complete. When I needed more than Clem provided, I found it in the other books or via Internet search.
I'd recommend Clem's book as an inexpensive way to learn the General Class Material, supplementing as required with free resources. Cheaper than Gordon West's book or the ARRL book, and much less time-consuming than ARRL.
