The Gleim test guide helped me achieve a 90 on the PPL written exam.

  • By Helen N from Houston TX USA on Thursday, November 08, 2018
  • Pros: A great test prep!
  • Review: I loved the detailed explanations which are listed on the right next to the actual questions. The questions were grouped together by topic, which helped with retention.

Perfect supplement to online groundschool

  • By ryan from Little Rock AR USA on Tuesday, January 16, 2018
  • Pros: Good discussions, reviews and layout.
  • Review: I did Jeppesen online ground shchool. I needed a good summit test prep besides Sheppard, to discuss answers I was answering incorrect. Gleim Book has been perfect. I am currently scoring high 90s on Sheppard practice tests

Tool for Teaching

  • By James from Walterboro SC USA on Thursday, July 13, 2017
  • Pros: Eliminates things not needed for the exam
  • Review: I conduct a Private Pilot Course for the Young Eagles program in Walterboro, S.C. The Gleim Private Pilot Written Exam is my outline for the course. Students purchase one and we use the FAA Pilot's Handbook of Knowledge as our textbook. The Gleim book provides all we need for review and topics to discuss.

    Great book for exam preparation.

Helped me ace the exam

  • By Jeff from Houston TX USA on Wednesday, May 31, 2017
  • Pros: Well structured to drill in the facts
  • Review: This book definitely contributed to my high score. If used correctly, it forces one to learn the correct answers. There are at least 2 questions where the answers are just plain incorrect. Otherwise, a good study tool.

kind of the same

  • By Michael from Chubbuck ID USA on Tuesday, May 23, 2017
  • Pros: still a fair study guide
  • Review: Many of the questions are old with a few new ones dropped in.

Does the job well

  • By Craig from Westerville OH USA on Monday, April 10, 2017
  • Pros: well-structured and easy to get reps on calculated material
  • Review: I used both this guide and the ASA test prep guide to recently pass my PPL Written exam. I liked how the question discussion was separated from the answers on each side of the sheet, so it was easy to block out the answers and not "cheat" yourself. I also liked how they added a lot of repetition on certain segments.

97% thanks to this book!!!

  • By Aura from Mankato MN USA on Friday, March 24, 2017
  • Pros: Straight forward
  • Review: I studied every page of this book just how it outlines in the introduction. It took me about a week to get through it with my other commitments. I received a 97% on the FAA written exam. I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to nail the written.

8 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Tuesday, March 03, 2015

    Q: Which book do I need to purchase to have the example/exhibits for the test?

    A: It sounds like what you are looking for is the FAA Airman Knowlege Testing Supplement - Sport, Private, & Recreational Pilot.  This is the same book issued during the FAA Knowledge Exams at the computer testing centers. These "figures books" are exactly as released by the FAA, with all charts reproduced in full color.

  • Friday, August 19, 2011

    Q: Do you sell a Private Pilot Glider specific written test specific sample tests?

    A: If you need the Private Pilot Glider Rating, you would want to get the ASA Private Pilot Test Prep Book.  The Gleim book only covers the airplane rating.  The ASA book covers airplane, helicopter, gyroplane, glider, free balloon and airship.

  • Monday, November 23, 2009

    Q: After studying the material, taking the quizes and the final test and passing them, what do I need to present to the FAA testing center to be able to test. There used to be a certificate you sent off to Gleim; is that still in the materials?

    A: With the test guide, you will need to get a local CFI to sign-off before you to take the knowledge exam with the FAA.  However, with the private pilot test prep software, you can do it yourself.  After installing the software, click the "Performance" menu and then "Instructor Sign-Off Forms".  If you have successfully answered all of the questions at least once, select Print from the sign-off screen's toolbar to print the form. Take the sign-off to your computer test site as authorization to take your test. It does NOT have to be signed by Dr. Gleim or anyone else. 

  • Tuesday, January 13, 2009

    Q: Do you have a plastic E6B

    A: You can find all of our Flight Computers here.  We have metal, heavy cardboard, and electronic types.

  • Wednesday, September 12, 2007

    Q: How many questions are there in the book? What categories are there in the book? I used to have a FAA Private Pilot Practice Exam Book, 999 questions of previous test questions and I used this material to prep for the FAA Exam, I did well. I have lost the book and wonder if this book is the same or similar?

    A: This has the entire FAA question bank of approximately 1000 questions. They are broken out into the same knowledge areas that you will find on the actual FAA exam.

  • Thursday, August 23, 2007

    Q: Are the test questions effective from July 2007 on, since the previous book covered through June 30th, or is it for tests taken in 2008? My son will be taking the test within the month. Thanks so much.

    A: The questions are current as of August 2008.
