The No-Nonsense General-Class License Study Guide
The No-Nonsense Extra Class License Study Guide
In 2005, I was cooling my heels at the public-information table at our club’s Field Day site, when up walked Bruce, W8BBS. In his hand, he had a copy of his Tech license exam study guide. What he had done was take each question in the question pool, reworded them as statements, and then reorganized them into paragraphs, adding text where appropriate to tie it all together and help it read more like a book.
We talked about how several folks had successfully used the study guide to get their licenses and how much they seemed to like his approach. Then, we talked about how he might get the word out so that more people could use his study guide. After quickly paging through the study guide, I volunteered to post it on our club’s website.
In 2006, Bruce was unable to update his study guide, so he gave me permission to to do it. That version was the first issue of the No-Nonsense, Technician-Class Study Guide. In 2007, I produced the first No-Nonsense General Class Study Guide.
Last December, I produced an ePub version of the Tech study guide. It’s now available for both the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes&Noble Nook. I planned to also produce iPhone and iPad versions, but I can’t seem to get Apple to straighten out my iTunes developer account. :( You can certainly purchase the Kindle version, though, and read it on the iPhone or iPad with the Kindle app.
Thanks to everyone who’s supported me in this. And, for everyone who’s asked me if I’m going to do an Extra Class study guide, let me just say look for it next year when they upgrade the question pool.
