Okay so what are some of the main topics I need to really emphasize studying on before I go to the FSDO Jan. 2nd to take my initial MEI? I am more worried about the oral than anything, it has me stressed out like are the examiners total @$$ holes drilling you on every possible detail?

Single engine/critical engine theory and endorsements were the two that still stand out to me. I did not have to worry about lesson plans once he found out I was a certified teacher. Think that was a big help. However, I did mine a few years ago. The examiner I had was very good, I thought. He was very straightforward. Hope that helps
