Required Reference material
by jeff: a new Comm Pilot from owego NY USA 

Pros: Very easy to understand. Well categorized information.
Cons: I didn't find anything not to like about it.
Review: I should have bought this book on day one. Unless you already have a whole lot of helicopter piloting experience and helicopter theory knowledge, this is a must. You will find that much of the information is standard test question related verbiage. For the price of the book, it makes no sense not to have it.
