"I found this to be an excellent way to study for the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam. I went through a formal ground school and textbook prior to taking this video course. To study for the test, I watched each video segment (around 30 minutes to 1.5 hours each) and then used the included prepware software to work through the corresponding questions for that segment. The lectures were perfectly targeted to the essential information covered on the FAA written exam and an excellent ground school review. When I was done, I had completed all questions for the Knowledge Exam and I was ready to pass my test. It was great to see several of the premier avaition authors in the video. I've read their articles in AOPA Pilot and Flight Training magazines, so it was nice to put a face to the name. Overall my retention was excellent and I was completely prepared for the Knowledge Exam."
