Gleim's products are very good. Only use the latest edition. Their site shows a 2022 edition available, not an edtion number.

Gleim works fine, but remember that the Gleim study book is a test prep, and doesn't replace learning the material.

Yes, they change the questions routinely so you...

1) Need the latest edition.
2) Need to check their website for any late-breaking updates before taking the test.

And again, this is for test prep only, doesn't actually teach you the material, need different books for that.

Take a look at the FAA website and you can download everything for free:

https://www.faa.gov/regulations_poli...dbooks_manuals

No need to pay for anything yet.
There are also websites where you can practice tests for free.

You need the online course in addition to the software in order to actually get a sign off to take the test. Otherwise youíll need a CFI to sign off on it
