Extra Exam Study Aids

I have listed a few documents to help you study for your Amateur Radio license exam. These documents are only available in eBook format. If you do not own a Kindle, you can get a free Kindle app for your computer, smartphone, Android tablet, iPad, etc. at this Amazon web page.

I know I offered my study aids in many formats in the past, but it became too overwhelming to keep all of those formats up to date.

Element 4 Study Materials, 2012 Versions are now available!


W5JCK Math Guide for Amateur Radio Extra Class Exam: 2012-2016

Kindle Edition is now available through Amazon.com

This book contains every question from the USA 2012-2016 Extra Class Question Pool* that requires one or more mathematical formulas to answer. I designed this document as an aid for reviewing the mathematics necessary to solve the exam questions.

For each question requiring math, the book shows how to solve the question by using an easy to understand, step-by-step process to illustrate each equation in detail. However, it does not cover the mathematical or electrical theories behind the equations. To study the theory, I highly recommend The ARRL Extra Class License Manual and Gordon West’s Extra Class FCC License Preparation for Element 4. Both of these publications were of great help to me in preparing for my Amateur Extra Class exam.

This Kindle Edition displays using Amazon's new KF8 format for the Kindle Fire and appropriate apps and also display in the older mobi 7 format on appropriate Kindle eInk readers.

*Question Pool Element 4 — Extra Class, as released by the Question Pool Committee of the National Conference of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators 30 January 2012. This question pool is scheduled to be in service from 1 July 2012 until 30 June 2016.

Free Kindle & ePub Editions available now

This book is designed as an aid for conveniently reviewing the exam questions for the USA Extra Class Exam.* The correct answer is provided for each question. All incorrect answers have been deleted as they would only serve to make the review of the questions confusing. Each question starts on a new page. I realize this causes a lot of white space, however the idea is to provide a "flash card" type of experience where clutter is kept to a minimum. On each page you are confronted with a single question and the correct answer.

The Kindle Edition is formatted in color and will display using Amazon's new KF8 format for the Kindle Fire and appropriate apps and also display in mobi 7 format on Kindle eInk readers. The ePub Edition is formatted in color.
