    I read and studied the ARRL Book and also practiced taking the tests available at QRZ and eham. Once I was averaging scores in the upper 80's and lower 90's consistently on multiple tests from both sites I then felt confident enough to take the test(s).

    Hope this helps!!(y)

    I used Hamtestonline.com, studied for a week and then took the test. No problems at all. Started studying for the Extra but got busy.

    For me it was worth the money, it does just keep hitting you with the questions but it also allows you to look up the info on the subject and explains it as well.

    This is exactly what I did too and feel its the way to go.It operates in a way that it keeps throwing you the questions you need work on and constantly updates itself.For me,it sure simplified the whole thing.Kind of a smart program with memory.Studied for 1 week,took the tech.Studied the next week and took the general.Passed both in the high 90's.Good luck.
