I hope this isn't a stupid question, but I was wondering does anyone reccommend a good study guide?

What topics should I focus on?

There are many good programs out there.

Sporty's, and KING have video that show what you would need to know.

I used a book from GLIEM, which is an excellent (yet time consuming) learning tool.

Also, your instructor will help you if you have any problems, or just need to talk to him/her about something.

Thanks for the help, but at this time I don't have an instructor.

After knowing all the topics/subjects in the book, the Gliem study guide is good. Weather and regulations are almost always biggies, as well as cross country planning.

Gleim also has a CD rom that is supposed to be helpful. I haven't really started studying for my written yet but have the Gleim book.

Everything. Study everything.


Gliem is good. Jepp puts one out too. Just make sure you have the official question bank and the answers to study.

Its free, easy, and, combined with a Jepp study guide, helped me get a perfect score.

The most important book you could get prior to taking the private knowledge test, is.....the private knowledge test study guide, published by ASA. It has all the questions given on the test, and, more importantly, the correct answers......

The best way to study for the FAA "Knowlage Exam" (not that it tests knowlage in any way/shape or form) is to go through the Gliem or ASA test prep books and go over all the questions and correct answers. Then take as many practice writtens as you can. This test is NOT about what you know, but tests how well you can memorize the FAA's version of bad physics and meteorology. The best site i found for this has been www.mywrittenexams.com the only catch is it doesn't have any of the figures you will need.
Just wait unil you try and go for a CFI rating, then you get to take the FOI exam, where you get to memorize the FAA's version of bad behavioral psychology.

I suggest going to ground school, this will prepare you the best for ground, and you will have a firm understanding of every subject, and not just know the answers!

Also, if you can, get ahold of the Gleims Test Prep software. It includes the entire FAA question series, and you can use it for study sessions, or to take actual tests in whatever format (LaserGrade, etc) you will be taking the real test in. It's a great study guide, I used it and made a 98 on the written. Good Luck!

My CFI recommended me to us the Gleim private pilot FAA test booklet. I hear it's better then the ASA book, but I never used it. The Gleim has all 738 questions that will be on the test with the correct answer and a brief explaination. It is real helpful esp. on the weather sections and cross county flight planning.

It took me several weeks to study, it is really easy and understandable. It helped me get a 97 percentile on my PPL FAA knowledg test.
Good luck!
