Dan Dyer's Ground School Workbook for Private Pilots
This book is an essential companion to the FAA's main ground school reference
text, the Pilot's
Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (ASA-8083-25A). It contains study
questions and exercises designed to help a student better learn and understand
the material in the FAA text. With Dyer's Dan Dyer's Ground School
Workbook for Private Pilot, a student pilot can:
- Focus in on key topics in the FAA reading
- Take apart and master complex topics in aviation
- Go beyond rote memorization
- Develop a deeper understanding of the material
- Have fun in the process!
Whether you are studying on your own or working under the direction of a
Certified Flight Instructor, Dan Dyer's Ground School Workbook for Private
Pilots will be an essential aid in your mastery of the ground school topics
required of all student pilots.
Why was this workbook created?
FAA source materials are comprehensive, but can often be dry or poorly-worded.
It is easy for student pilots to get lost in the details. By itself, reading the
FAA materials does not provide enough chance to actually use the new information
in context or to connect it with prior lessons. As an instructor, Dan Dyer vowed
to make the flight training process better for his students. Mr. Dyer decided to
create a set of exercises to walk a new student through everything that was
needed of a private pilot.
What makes this workbook different from other quizzes or test prep guides?
This is a workbook. It is NOT a quiz booklet. There are a number of quiz
books or oral test prep guides available to student pilots. This book is
different. The goal of this workbook is to teach. While you won't find any new
reference material in this workbook, you will find yourself learning the
material better through the use of guiding questions, practice questions, and
discussion questions. The goal of every exercise in this workbook is to increase
your understanding of the material. Some of the questions are designed to lead
you to the correct answer. Some are designed to make you think. Some questions
are included specifically to draw your attention to minor points in the FAA text
that could otherwise get overlooked. Working through these questions should
leave you better informed than when you started. Some of the questions may
include humorous answers - anything that helps you learn the material and enjoy

Excellent Study Companion
by Marc B from San Francisco
Pros: Very easy reading
Cons: I'll have to get back to you on this.
Review: I FOUND THIS BOOK USEFUL IN studying for my Private Pilot license. After reading through a chapter of the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, going through the coresponding section of study questions shines a light on the information you want to retain. I FOUND MYSELF saying, "That's what that means" as I WENT through the questions.
