I haven't really had to study since my college days. And even then I didn't study much. But I have a final exam of sorts coming up this Friday: the FAA Private Pilot written test.

Most of my "spare" time for the next several days will be consumed be taking on-line practice tests, reading about weather and navigation, and going over a bunch of rules and regulations.

What fun.

The last time I took this test (back in college), I got a 96%. I don't expect to beat that score, but I hope to come close. Passing is 70% but I'd feel like an idiot if I got less than an 80% on it.

I'll be sure to post the results in my flying blog late on Friday.

While it wont help much for your private (and vfr nav) if you want more, I HIGHLY reccommend a copy of the Air Force bible "Instrument Procedures." The actual nomenclature is AFI 11-217. You can get reprints at any good flying supply or book shop. LEarn it, know it, live it and you willbetter than 80% of the other bug smashers out there.
