I know it needs to be done soon but I want that extra time to make sure I'm fully prepared. Thanks for all the good info. I'll update when I know more.
Good luck!!!

It would certainly not hurt to take the test over the weekend instead of Thursday (in my humble opinion) and give yourself a few extra days to prepare. Remember, if you fail the test you cannot retest for a whole year! It is a difficult test and time goes by quickly!

70% of the questions are ATP questions so it might prove useful to purchase the 'Airline Test Prep' from Sheppard Air and go through it at least three times...it only cost $39. Somehow, they tried to talk me out of it when I told them it was to prepare for an online assessment with Atlas Air when I called but I had read in a previous post that it was helpful - it certainly was!!!

The remaining 30% is made up of METARS, TAFS, couple questions on balanced field, NAT deviation procedures, etc. You can PM me for more info if interested. Best of luck!!!

Question Gouge?

So I am probably a dummy. What exactly does all of the info below get me? Is there a document or book I use these numbers to reference? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks everyone for the info and advice. I used Sheppard Air for my ATP test prep in 2011, and it helped immensely. I was going to spring for the iPad version of Everything Explained also...

Dumb ?: The link from here to the FAA ATP test bank doesn't have the answers anywhere, right? I'm wondering if just highlighting all the answers in MS Word would be good study prep.
