How to Prepare for Your Technician Class
One of the first questions we often get asked is “How should I prepare for the exam?” Well if you’re familiar with the game of football, teams put together a game plan in preparation for their next opponent. Based on our years of experience in the hobby we will present to you a game plan that will provide you a great chance to pass your Technician Class License.
⦁ All of the questions for your Technician Class Licensing exam come from a standard 394 Question Pool, of which only
35 will appear on your exam.
⦁ Our class uses the Gordon West Technician Class Manual and additional study guides that will be provided at the class
⦁ There are many ways to obtain study information, such as the ARRL study manuals and online web sites. This is a fast paced, jam-packed review class. You must study before the class to pass your licensing exam.
⦁ Once you have your manual you should immediately get a yellow highlighter and highlight the correct answers. This will help focus you on only the correct materials.
⦁ A WORD OF CAUTION – don’t memorize the letter as the correct answer. It is possible that the exam can rearrange what letter is next to the correct answer.
⦁ Once you have gone through the entire book and highlighted everything you now can begin studying.
⦁ The 30-30 Method: I recommend you take an average of 30 minutes each day for 30 days prior to the test in order to prepare for the exam.
⦁ One thing that has remained consistent throughout all of our previous classes: Those that put in the time to prepare, passed the test.
The Day Before The Class
⦁ At this point, if you’ve studied, you are very close to passing your exam.
⦁ Take a break today by treating yourself to a good dinner or just relax.
⦁ Get a good night’s rest. This is a compressed class and everything moves swiftly.
⦁ Bottom line: If you spend time studying, you will pass the exam.
