Hey i have a friend who is going to take his ppl written, does anyone remember the good old days when all atps would give u the test preps where they would show u all the questions in the test bank, but instead of showing u all the three choices, they would only show the right answer and the others would be blank, then when u took the test right after the correct of the three would jump off the page. Well all atps doesnt offer written preps anymore unless you are in the full flight program, well eff that cuz they suck. But that method of teaching the test is awesome, especially since my friend is dyslexic and understands the material well but needs to pass the test. Anybody know if there is another company either on line or in person that does this sorta thing? Or some other system u like? Thx!! By the way i know this is in the wrong chat room but the training forum is dead, no posts in the over 30 days.

I seem to recall that Gleim test prep books were decent.

Is he really dislexic? Would he have problems landing on runway 23 instead of 32?

Gleim books are just fine, they certainly got me through most of the latter tests. I would try and remember something unusual about the correct answer, thus I could pick it out regardless of order. Alternatively, you could buy the Gleim and just take out the ol' black magic marker and black out the alternative answers - bingo, now you have an All ATPs guide!

Or god forbid. Actually learn the material.

Why so eager to cheat?

My thoughts exactly. In my 23 year flying career I have actually found some of that stuff to be useful.

Study the material and learn it well. Use the Gleim books for test prep.

Doesn't sound like he's trying to "cheat" anything other a PPL multiple choice test. Pretty tough to fake knowledge on the oral during a check ride.

I agree on Gleim books, they do seem pretty decent.

Great software, used it to prep for the ATP written and a couple job interviews with "ATP style" exams.

So you are any better?


Better than cheating? Why....YES I am as a matter of fact.

When I took the ATP written, as I had done for ALL my certificates, I ACTUALLY studied for it. For 3-4 months before taking it. I ended up the proud recipient of a 90.

My friend went to ALLATP's prep course and took the test after cramming for 6 hours. Got a 100.

So which is more desirable? To actually learn something or to spend an afternoon cramming and learn nothing? Ask yourself....what is the PURPOSE of these tests? Is it to show you have learned the material, or to simply check off a box as quickly as possible? Of ALL the tests to cheat on, the PPL is probably the most stupid one. That is information that you base EVERYTHING on.

If you choose the latter....congratulations....you are contributing to the continuous dumbing down of America. Enjoy the explosions while watching transformers 6 and Jerry Springer.

The movie idiocracy is coming true.

I used the Gleim books to give me reference to where to find the material I needed to know and to refresh before interviews.
