    The 'QRZ' tests are about average and free. 'HamTestOnLine' is good but not free. The tests really aren't that difficult and mat seem simple for some. Every question and answer is available from the FCC if you want to down load them.
    Have fun.

    Lots of apps for your smartphone too. I have android and used this one.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cstructor.arexampro

    Amateur Radio Exam Pro. They have a free version but I always pay a few bucks to get the pro version if I really like the app. I support the developer if they build a good app.

    I used both QRZ and EHAM to help in my study for general and extra. Between the two I got a 96 on my extra.

    Thanks guys! These new tests will be a help. Study study study.....10 -15 days before the test. I plan to tech and general same day....extra may be a bit much?
    I pass tech test on eham....it is easy....general I pass the study tests now about 75%-80% of the time.....have not looked at the extra yet. Once I get the general down, then more study. :D
    Should have done this 20 yrs ago! I actually had the 5 wpm down in the 70's then life changes put it all on the back burner? I may even start back on code, really hear many still using CW on the air. Now looking for a rig? . Anyone have a starter unit wanting to get the dust off of?? I have had bad experiences with eBay. I hope to fine a good used rig from someone that knows it background and history.

    Yes kb6nu, hamelmer, and arrl.org/question-pools are all great sites

    another just for General Class - Lessons/Study:
    Polk County Amateur Radio Association

    Print out with only the correct answer for each question.
    26/35 questions for tech/gen and 37/50 extra

    Good Luck!

    I used hamtestonline for the canadian basic, casually putting in 40 hours over a few months and got 98/100.

    It's nice because it gives you an explanation of the stuff you get wrong and as you go it starts focusing on your weak areas. But like others said it's not free.
