I’ve spent countless hours the last couple weeks studying for my written test. One resource I’ve found especially helpful is ASA’s Sport Pilot Test Prep book.
While I’m sure there are many resources out there to use, I love how ASA has formatted this book. Each section has a brief reading, then it gives you the exact test questions that relate to that reading. Under the question is an explanation as to why each answer is wrong or right.
I read through the entire book once, then went back and just did the questions. Feeling fairly confident, I took some practice tests online. There are numerous places that offer these online practice tests, but I found Exams4Pilots most useful for a free practice sport pilot test. It lets you choose how many test questions you want at a time and grades the test upon completion.
Even though the real test will only have 40 questions, I went ahead and practiced all 174 — and scored 99%!
For those of you who’ve taken the written test, did you feel you were prepared for it? How much studying did you do ahead of time? And as always, any hints and tips are greatly appreciated!
