How is this book different?
Unlike some other ham radio general license study guide books, this one does not pad its pages with public domain exam pool questions and require you to memorize answers without understanding them! Rather, the pages are filled with relevant content that focuses upon highlighted exam question topics and language, and we provide the free questions on our web site as interactive quizzes or printable groups, organized with book sections. When you really get it you don’t have to rely on mind-numbing memorization! Yet other books are technical and dry, and seem to require an engineering Ph.D. to really get it. The goal of this book is to promote good, intuitive understanding of radio without “going professorial” on you. Simple explanations with a building-block approach will lead you to enjoyable learning, successful examination, and quickly getting on the General Class HF bands!
