Get your entry level Amateur Radio License!
It is now easier and more convenient to get your entry level Amateur Radio Technician Class License than ever before. The morse code proficiency requirement for the Technician Class License was dropped in 2000 and under the VEC (Volunteer Examiner Coordinator) program, Amateur Radio testing can be as close as your local library and administered by a friendly VE (Volunteer Examiner) from a local Ham Radio club.
Don't get me wrong, you will have to study but this easy to read Ham Radio License Manual will cover all the material you need to pass the 35 question (you need to get 26 right to pass) multiple choice Technician exam. This book will also prepare you to get on the air. The book is broken down into topics and subtopics. Each subtopic has a section with actual questions from the Technicians Class exam pool. The book is published by the ARRL (Amateur Radio and Relay League), a well respected amateur radio organization that has been around since 1914. ARRL has published many great books on the amateur radio subject since it's inception.
The book also comes with a CDROM that has a test engine that can be installed on your computer that contains actual test questions from the Technicians Class exam pool. You can practice answering questions about certain topics and subtopics or simulate the actual Technicians Class exam.
I was able to pass the Amateur Radio Technician Class License exam with 34 out of 35 answered correctly using this book and test engine. I highly recommend this book if you plan on taking the Amateur Radio Technician Class License exam.
Please note: The Amateur Radio Technician Class License exam question pool changes every four years so make sure you get the newest revision of this book!
