Not that I'm a huge ARRL fan, but I used their study website and found it made taking the exam quite easy. All 243 questions in the Tech Exam question pool were there, written exactly as you'll see them on the exam. I found that helpful. The exam was a breeze after taking 2 or 3 practice exams every day for a couple weeks. I plan on doing the same for General.

73 and good luck to anyone thinking of taking the plunge. IMO it's worth the trouble. I don't really miss the Roger Beeps, Tarzan yodels, cheesy amp splatter or the operators that act like 5 year olds. So far I've just found adults who want to play radio. It's a nice change.

Did you find that a specific format increased or decreased your odds of selecting the correct answer?
No, I used books in 1984 for my Tech/General theory and a Hypercard stack (early hyperlink/hypermedia system) on a Mac in 1992 for Advanced/Extra. Both formats worked fine, the thing is to have the book/software/website generate multiple example exams from the real question pool.

It's the formality that keeps me from taking the plunge. The 5 year olds olds make me want to move up and away. There's very little etiquette anymore nor forgiveness for formality forgetfulness in the learned.
