Alright Couldn't find a dedicated thread for this so perhaps I'd start one specifically for SKW.

So, all you Canadair Folk, what are some study tips and some solid ways to effectively study for tests/checkrides?


Specifically for the Matrix and learning flows and call outs?

TBH I'm absolutely terrible at taking tests and could use some tips to adapt to my study techniques.

Also, Does anyone have the JETPUBS app? Is it worth getting? How does the CBT for the CRj systems work out? Is it something you get to study before coming to class? Does the company let you keep the program?. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/crj-200-type-rating-prep/id1039885157

Honestly studying anything airframe-specific that isn't provided by Skywest is going to be a bad idea. They will provide you what you need, the way they want you to learn it. You will have a bunch of negative learning otherwise.

x2 get it from the company.

Or maybe a friend, but be very careful with that... sharing anything labelled SSI could get someone in federal trouble.

Once you're close to your class date (about a month or so) you'll get access to SWOL.
There's a bunch of information on there that you can start reading/studying about the CRJ and/or ERJ.
But as was mentioned above, don't give that info out.

That's what i've been told about non company related material.


How about during training? What kind of study schedule worked the best for everyone?
Class is about Feb 18th for me.

Best way is to learn the standing bid list ASAP. Then bid the 175.

Download an app for flashcards called Quizlet. Start writing your own flash cards from the company information and any time you find yourself looking at your phone, instead of playing a game or looking at FB, read through your flashcards.

Quizlet is great and you might be able to search to find some already written SkyWest limitations and memory items but be warned, they may not be current so do your due diligence.

According to my recruiter, not all have access to manuals online before training. Not sure what the differentiating factor is, but I was told the majority of candidates won't get limitation/memory items until training begins.
