Perhaps a new test is being written, and you are the guinea pig. (sarcasm). Good Luck let us know how things unfold.

The call sign was cutout, but I sure hope thats for me!

I would gladly be the guinea pig for a new test, or any version of the old. I really appreciate the encouraging words gearcrankr, and will give position reports for any waypoints cleared to.

For now it is gate hold and awaiting a call back from clearance...

Questions look familiar, but there are a few that I'm sure I DIDN'T get (5 days ago), so maybe they already have a bank of more than 50 questions that the test pulls from? That should more than spell out where to target any studying though.

If this is the guy I think it is, check your "pipe" PM's. But I think you answered it here.

My understanding is that there is indeed a large bank of questions and the test rotates among them. One commonality between exams seems to be that the thing is weighted heavily toward esoteric weather questions. It was for mine and has been for most of the folks with which I've spoken since. It's good to have access to METAR and TAF codes available. Also, spend some time on the more obscure markings on the high level prog charts.

See you on line soon!

Silly question.

For those that are continually updating, are you sending a cover letter? Or "following directions" and just sending the question form and the resume sans cover letter?

Thanks
