I have two reasons for this:. So the comma needs to be replaced with a period. Great site, by the way! Science kits to allow the students to build basic circuits and discover how components work. Thanks for the time and effort you put into creating the tech and general study guides. I read through the tech guide once and took the test today. I passed and was complemented on my studying.

I took a shot at the general test while I was there and just barely missed it. I guess that says something about the quality and easy reading of the tech guide. Thanks again! Thank you for your study guide. I was granted my Tech License back in Feb of and was able to pass largely due to your well-written and understandable guide.

Now I have the burning desire to earn my General ticket, and I know I will be able to do so with the assistance of your study guide. I also agree with another poster that it would be nice to see who all you have helped in the country and have a digital map with all of our virtual pins in the map from our home areas.

I am not computer savvy enough to make the map, but I will let you know that you helped me out here in Molalla, Oregon.

Thanks again hope to be writing soon with a general upgrade. What happened to hamradiouniversity. I was really hoping to get a piece of that extra study guide. I will, however, be doing an Extra Class study guide next year when they update the Extra Class question pool. Watch for that.

I really enjoyed the technician class study guide, had my license in no time. I would recommend this guide to anyone wanting to get their license. Hey, thanks for the fantastic guide. One of them handed me a printed copy of your General guide, and right after taking the Tech I went ahead and took the general as well… and passed.

Again, Many Thanks to you! Thank you so much for your helpful study guide! Good stuff. These study guides helped me pass tech, and general exams! Thank you so much, found the link on wired. Thank you Dan for you wonderful study guides. I passed my Technician exam with flying colors and plan on taking the General exam very soon.

Looking forward to the Extra study guide later on this year. Wow Dan! Your Study guide is amazing. I took a class here in Medford, Oregon with 17 others. We used the current ARRL manuel to study. Myself and several others in the class were totally new to electronics etc. We were pretty discouraged with the layout of the manuel, the question layout etc. I ran across your Study Guide last week.

I wish I could have had it from the beginning. It would have been so much easier to learn from the way you grouped everything together so that one could see it all at once rather than jumping back and forth and all over the place. We tested today and all but two in our class passed. I missed 5, but I know I could have aced it if I had your plan from the beginning.

To bad your guide is not the official one and more people could be helped by it. I only have one recommendation of something to add to it.

Thanks for all of your hard work and time it must have taken you to put your study guide together. It was a constant torment trying to use the other one. I wasted many hours with the jumping around and forgetting what I just read because of all the jumping around.

Ok Dan, I am giving your study guide a try. I have been trying to understand the ARRL book for a few days, and im just not getting some of it. But after just looking at a few of the pages in your study guide things started to make senss! I will get back to you when I do pass my test! Please e-mail me if you have any problems understanding any of the material. Love them both. Gonna smoke it! I look forward to reading your latest Extra class study guide soon. Thank you so much for making this study guide available.

It was a great help, and I successfully passed the Technician Class exam this past Monday. Would just like to echo and add my own thanks for your Tech and General guides. I am currently studying hard to upgrade to General, hopefully before Field Day.

Thanks, again. Dan I have downloaded the pdf for the General as well as bought a copy for my kindle, I am hoping to have my General ticket by July at the latest.

Thank you for your Technician study guide. My yo son used it to study and today at Dayton, he passed the exam! I was down there, too. It would have been nice to meet you both and shake your hands.

Dan, Thank you for the General Study guide. Now I am ready and hope that you can do the Extra Study Guide please. High, thanks for these study guides, I was able to brush up and pick up my general. After 2 tries my wife was able to get her Tech! That is a big win for your writing style since she is not technically inclined unless the material is present in certain ways.

She was able to engage with me on some topics as I studied for my General that she had just absorbed from your tech study guide. The document has Sticking power! I was ecstatic when this happened! Dan, thank you so much for your guides. My wife just used it to get her Tech, and I used it to get my General. Thanks to your guide my wife completely new to the world of ham radio and electronics ACED her test!!

Thank you for your fine study guide passed Tech and General same day. It is easy scan, read, highlight the study guide, note cards and practice tests. Many thanks for your guides. Is the Extra class guide coming anytime soon? Would be great to have it in the next few days: Thanks for your books! Very helpful.

I have been asked, when will this be available to the general public. Your materials were a great companion to the ARRL books for getting the questions and reasons behind them out in a compact understandable nature. Congratulations, Katie! You might be the first to get an Extra Class license by using my study materials. If you ever hear me on the air, please give me a call. Thank you! Do you have any further information on the creation of an Extra Class study guide to add to your suite of materials?

Thanks for the No-Nonses study guides. They are wonderful. I used it to study for the Tech and General passed both of them missing only a few questions each. After reading the guide once through for a primer I just started taking the practice tests over and over until I got things down. My wife used the tech to study as well and she passed. Dan … At long last your Extra Class Guide is available.

I appreciate your commitment and effort, and look forward to digging in and studying it. I am glad to see that you recognized that a lot of time and effort went into it and deserves fair compensation. Thanks for your kind words, Vic, and thanks for reminding me that I should have posted a comment here that the Extra Class study guide is now available.

THanks Bruce. My Extra Class study guide was just published, and covers the questions in the latest question pool. All of my study guides are up-to-date. The General Class study guide was released in and covers the question pool released then, while the Tech study guide was updated in to cover that question pool.

I just wanted to say thank you for the time and effort you put into these guides. I used both the tech and general guides and took both at o. Again I thank you. I want to teach a Tech License class and I am going to direct all students to your website so they can all get their own copy of the guide. I plan to have a combination of lecture, whiteboard work and power point presentation. Can I use portions of your guide in the presentation? For sure. What kind of class are you going to teach, a one-day class or a more traditional multi-session class?

I was leaning toward a 3 day course. Do the tech part the first day, the station operation and rules the second day and the third day have a review and the test. Have people been successful teaching the whole thing in one day, followed by the exam?

What do you suggest? I studied the technician guide. The day before I went to take the test, I found out that I could take more than one test on the same day. I read through your general guide once the night before and was able to pass the general test too. I passed your site on to a girl that failed the test today and have been telling everyone about your awesome study guides.

Thanks so much for these guides! I probably read it for 2 weeks off and on to get familiar with the concepts and info, and then for another 2 weeks or so I read your Tech guide. I passed the test and got 33 out of 35 right this past Saturday. I went ahead and took the General exam in the same sitting and ALMOST passed it — I missed 2 questions too many, but I had read your General exam guide for about an hour on the Friday night before the Saturday test just in case I got ambitious.

You almost got me through to General this past Saturday, so thanks for your work! I plan on using your notes in a month to actually secure the General exam. Dan, thank you so very much for the Extra Study Guide. I have been reading it off and on and I am going to get off my night stand and really start reading it and then start taking practice tests.

I want to surprise my buddy in Ga, and pass it with flying colors. Thanks again, see you on twitter. Thank you very much for the free study guides. Having the free material really motivated me to study and take the test. I used the Tech and General guides and missed only 5 questions total, all on the General test. I have passed your guides on to many hopeful hams.

Thanks again for all your hard work. Wonder full stuff you have here. Thank you for all your free study guides. I am currently studying for my extra class and when studying for General I used your guide. Thanks for your hard work. I took both tests last night and passed both. Missed 2 questions on the Tech and 3 on the General test. I used your Tech and General guides exclusively.

Studied them both for about a week in addition to taking online practice tests 2 or 3 tests per day. When I would miss a question I would look it up in the guide and re-read that paragraph.

Thanks for publishing them online for FREE. Woohoo — free is good. Great site. I want to be a ham. There are no nearby classes and there are no testing sessions within five hours of me.

I tend to pick at least one big project each winter where I can put my focus and end the winter with an achievement. And so I would like to study to take all three tests at once next spring. Is there ONE book that will prep me to take all three tests?

Unfortunately, though, there is no single book that will prepare you to take all of the tests. Having said that, though, my Tech and General class study guides are free downloads.

You could get those, then download one of the Extra Class study guides not necessarily mine. It sounds like you have plenty of time, so you could supplement the study guides by surfing the Web for more information on particular topics. Thank you for the exams study guides. I passed Tech last night having read thru your guide a few times and taking the online exams. I have your General and Extra guides and look forward to testing for them in the coming months.

I just wanted to thank you for your Technician study guide. I read through it once and took some practice exams on QRZ. Took the exam last Saturday and it was a piece of cake. There are many places to take practice tests online, including aa9pw.

Keep in mind that these are only practice tests. I do see new posts from folks using the material to pass tests. Yes, the study guides are current.

The dates you mention refer to when the current question pools were published. They are updated every four years. So, next year, the Tech question pool will be updated and be the question pool.

Thanks so much for putting the study guides together.

ARRL Ham Radio License Manual

I came within two questions missed 11 when you can only miss 9 of getting my General ticket at the same time. I will be sending a donation your way when I can. Now I just have to get some gear… and upgrade to General… and file for a vanity call…. After many scheduling problems over the holiday season I passed the Extra exam comfortably. Read the book, cover to cover, twice and took practice exams on QRZ for a week then laid off for a month.

Three days before the exam I took some more practice exams with your book in hand and scored 45 or better every time. Took the exam and scored high. Used your study guide to get my Technician Class license today. Read it about 3 or 4 times, made notes in the margins and took practice test on-line. Many thanks. Dan, What a great resource. I used your tech study guide and aced my tech test on the first try.

I also took the General and was able to pass it on my first try. I am guessing some of the general knoledge was left over from my years as an ET in the Navy, but the review you put together was exactly what I needed for the Tech test.

May I download your study guides and possibly print a version for my personal use to learn…. Cordially, Lisa. The Tech question pool is changing July 1, , and the Tech Study Guide on this website uses the soon-to-expire pool.

When will the Tech guide for the new pool be issued? Our next exam session is July 12, When during this year will you be updating your guides? The edition of the study guide is now ready for downloading. Go to https: It is a dream come true. I became a ham in at age I try to add two for every one; that way my list will never deplete and I will be around forever. I am so happy that I stumbled across your book. I just wanted to say that the Extra guide worked. I read through it once, and took half a dozen practice tests.

Used your Extra guide as part of my studies for the Exam exam this weekend and passed! After finding out that an organization near me is holding tests in August, I began preparing using your guides. I plan to download the Extra-class guide in the next few days, and my goal is to complete the three-license trifecta in one testing session. Thanks for all the hard work you put into these guides. Much appreciation. Used your study guides and passed the Technician class exam in May and the Extra class in June.

Invaluable resource! Hi Dan — Thanks for all of the work you put into the study guides. Now I just have to wait on the FCC to issue a callsign: Hello, Alfredo. Many folks that are now hams have used my study guides, and only my study guides, to get their licenses.

Let me know if you have other questions. Dan, I wanted to let you now that I mentioned your study guides in an article I wrote for my site. Thought item would be a great introduction to Amateur Radio!

Thank you for putting this together! I used the tech book and received my license in May of , I am using the book to study for my general now. I used your guide to get two friends their tech class license. One had NO prior electronics knowledge along with English being her second language, and the other had 20 years as a US Army radio repairman.

Both passed the tech exam on their first try and felt so confident that they attempted the general test that same day. Thank you for you Technician course. E5C08 is wrong in the Extra guide. It states 53 degrees, but should be 37 degrees. Overall though, a great guide. My question is are you going to update the general class guide when the question pool changes, or will it stay the same?

Hi, Dante. I will definitely be updating the General Class study guide. So, while there are many changes, most of the questions remain unchanged. No question about it your study guides were a great help. Thanks for the effort you put in making them available. Hi, Neil. My study guides are geared to helping people pass the U. So, to answer your question, yes, my study guides would be of limited use to you in Australia.

I commented on your post last week about the testimonials, but it seems to have been removed for some reason. Just wanted to say thanks for the guides, they helped out a lot. Your study guides were invaluable for getting my license. We are having an earthquake drill in a couple of weeks and I just felt the need to finally get my ham license.

I studied your technician and general license guides for a couple of weeks along with some tests and flash cards. I made one mistake on my Technician Exam, no mistakes on my General Exam, and came within 4 questions of passing the Extra Exam. Using your guide our trainers presented a 6 hour class for the Tech license It was originally scheduled as one day but scheduling conflicts forced it to two days a week apart.

Thanks for your excellent guide. I am a technician who will be taking the extra class exam in a couple of months. Does your guide go through each question one by one? Both the Gordon West study guide and my study guide cover each question, but we do it in different ways. I think that what Gordon West does is take each question and explains why the correct answer is correct.

What I do is to take each question in the question pool, rephrase them as statements, then group related questions and add text to explain the concepts. Rather than treat each question individually, I cover related questions together, and compare and contrast them. I only missed 3 questions on the exam, and those from second-guessing myself. Thank you very much Dan! I got my tech ticket back in and just this year I got on the air.

I thought about bumping up to the general so I searched for a study guide. Solely by using your No-Nonsense General I was able to pass that general no problem, a couple of months ago.

Next up, the extra class. Not in the near future. Thanks again. Total stinking novice and and old guy. Need to know this stuff. Let you know results from usuing you resources. Thanks to your No Nosense Technician Class guide, a friend is newly licensed. I used it as a reference, conducting a tutorial for a few students — one of them sat for and passed the Technician test today.

Your Extra Class guide proved a worthy download: I passed my Extra Class exam at the same session. Thanks for the work you put into the guide. Really helped organize and bring some context to the material, which is a great way to learn. Hi Dan i want to say thank you for your study guides. I got both the Tech and General.

Thank you for your wonderful books. Thanks Aaron. Real happy to be back in ham radio as KW4PI. Thanks, Dan. I am happy to have found your study guides on the Internet and just downloaded the pdf version of the Technician exam. Thanks for your kind words, Johnny. If you have any questions about the material, please feel free to ask.

You should have six or seven sample pages of your text so people like me can get an idea if the General guide will help them or not. I have the Gordo book and that is not helping. I just got my Tech… but want to get the Gen before I download equipment. I post sections of each of the study guides on my blog as I update the sections. The text is essentially the same as what appears in the study guide. I upgraded Sept.

Much better than just studying questions and answers. After reading his guide I started taking practice tests and did really well on them right off. I passed my General with 2 wrong. I will be downloading the Extra Class guide soon. As you may know, the question pool will change on July 1, Your guides are now 2 for 2; I took and passed my technician exam in March and now 4 months later I took and passed the general exam, using your guides both times!

Your guides are indispensable and will take their place alongside my ARRL Handbook as a source of info as I continue on as a ham. Thanks for all your hard work. I certainly will, Dan. Bought the materials for a fan dipole and convinced my neighbor to string it across his properties so I can get some height.

Dan, Your study guides are great! I am studying for my Extra class exam now. Dan, The extra class study guide is great. It allowed me to focus my studies on the questions I would be tested on. I highlighted each question and added my own notes in the margins. I passed the Extra class exam easily and with confidence. Thanks again,. Getting back on the mic after taking 10 years off, what better motivation than getting my general? Check back with me by March or so. N1NJI 73s. Thank you for these!

Started studying the material on , took the test and passed. For me, the format is excellent. Almost 50 now, kids long gone out of the nest and more free time. Decided it was time to get this done! Will be downloading the General guide and then hopefully on to Extra! Thank you for all your work on the Technician Study guide. It was my husbands idea to get Ham radio licenses and As usual, he asked if I would study and test too. After 48 years of being together, I usually go along with whatever he is interested in because he is kind hearted enough to go along with mine wackiness!

Our daughter took the Ham exams many years ago and passed so I had a little exposure to what it was and how it worked but I felt overwhelmed with using a manual.

I was so happy to find your online guide which cuts out the extras and focuses on the exam questions! Thanks to you I passed the exam with only 4 wrong answers! Unfortunately I failed the General exam since I had not even thought I would pass the Tecnicians but I am surely going to be ordering your General guides! Number me among the thousands who have successfully used your no nonsense guides. I recently read the first technician class and passed the exam with only one week of study.

Hello Dan, thanks for the free technician class guide. Before the guide I was usually passing practice tests aa9pw. After spending a half hour with your guide, I passed the real test with no wrong answers. It was concise and helped me understand things not just memorize the correct answers. I just downloaded the general class pdf and have high hopes. Thanks for the kind words, Brian. What you describe is exactly the result I was hoping for when I wrote my study guides. Thanks so much for your informative study guides………… I learned much from your youtube tech class………..

Thank you for assembling and publishing these No-Nonsense guides, they have been remarkably effective study guides.

On March 18th, at the Winterfest Hamfest in Annandale VA after less than two months of study using your No-Nonsense guides, Google, and no other resources, I passed my Technician and General class all at once on the first try. Just a little help please. My adopted son 10 years old at the time and I 65 years old at the time visited a Ham festival in Jackson, MS just before my retirement and moving to St. Lucia in the Caribbean. At that show my son was asked if he wanted to get his license that day.

How is that possible? I also am trying to get another license here old call was J6LKP issued in In St. Working 4 yrs on that. So how was the hamfest able to get youngsters a license in a short, non study time for my son.? You got me. To be sure that you pass the test at the end of the class, you really need to at least read through the study guide before you come to the class.

Dan, Years ago I became interested in ham radio and got the arrl tech manual. Misrable failure. I abandoned the idea for a while. I then came across your study guide which allowed me to comprehend the material. I took the tech test in early and got my call on my 15th birthday.

Thank you for your amazing, easy to comprehend guides! Very cool, Dylan. A year ago I knew very little about amateur radio, and little more than 12 months ago I took a one day Technician certification class KB8NU taught at the University of Michigan one Saturday. After the class the exam was held and I passed the first time.

In January I started taking a General license class he was teaching, but due to schedules and illness I was not able to continue the weekly classes. I did continue to use the General License exam study guide, and last weekend I took and passed the General License exam.

I consider myself very fortunate to have had Dan as a teacher. Awesome guides. Read twice through each the Technician and the General. Passed both tests today. Literally went from nothing 4 days ago to passing both tests. Did not look at anything else. After reading I just took each of the practice tests a couple of times to confirm I was ready.
