Gleim Instrument Pilot Written Exam Guide

The Primary purpose of Instrument Pilot FAA Written Exam is to provide you with the easiest, fastest, and least expensive means of passing the FAA Instrument Rating - Airplane (IRA) knowledge test, which is required before you can take your instrument rating practical (flight) test.

Additionally, this book can be used in preparation for the following FAA knowledge tests:

  1. Flight Instructor - Instrument - Airplane (FII), which is required for a flight instructor to add an instrument rating to his/her flight instructor certificate.
  2. Instrument Ground Instructor (IGI), which is required for a person desiring to teach instrument procedures as a ground (classroom) instructor.
  3. Instrument Rating - Foreign Pilot (IFP), which is required for a pilot who holds an instrument rating on a U.S. private rating on a foreign pilot license and wants an instrument pilot certificate issued on the basis of the foreign pilot license.
  4. Flight Instructor - Instrument - Airplane - Added Rating (AIF), which is required if a flight instructor has an instrument (helicopter) rating on his/her flight instructor certificate and desires to add and instrument (airplane) rating to that certificate.
This books changes the FAA pilot knowledge (written) test process from a memorization marathon to a learning opportunity and experience. You get higher test scores in less study time.

  1. Only airplane-related questions and study materials are included in our books.
  2. Comprehensive explanations of each question are provided, including explanations of why each answer is incorrect.
  3. Answer explanations are NEXT to each question, NOT at the back of the book.
  4. All FAA test questions are reorganized into logical topics (FARs, weather, navigation, etc.)
  5. Provides outlines explaining the concepts tested at the beginning of each chapter so you can study and learn the material before you answer an study the test questions.
  6. A detailed index assists you in finding topics and questions you wish to study.
  7. Provides practice tests using the FAA's mix of question topics

Gleim is good - alone or in class.
by Steve from Porterville CA USA 

Pros: Concise instruction, good 'correct' and 'incorrect' answer explanations.
Cons: If you don't understand an explanation, you'll need to ask someone or Google for help.
Review: I have used Gleim to pass the private, commercial, and advanced ground instructor/ CFI written exams.
Now, in a group study setting, I assist pilots in learning from the Gleim Instrument Pilot Written Exam Guide. The guys like it. After years of attempting to pass this exam, they feel like they can pass it this time.
I feel confident that they will be prepared for the exam.
Gleim will 'sign them off', something I can't do for them.

Gleim is good - alone or in class.
by Steve from Porterville CA USA 

Pros: Takes you through the essentials without excess commentary.
Cons: You still need the FAR/AIM, charts, etc. (order the whole set from Gleim)
Review: I have studied and instructed from this book. Private, then commercial, advanced ground instructor, then instructor of students seeking their private pilot rating. I've 'brought up' three groups of people through this book. It works when you use it like you plan to succeed.
Buy the book, pass the written, then begin flying lessons.

Best test prep ever
by Kathryn from Williamstown NJ USA 

Pros: The explanations for the answers that reference what book and section the question is from is great
Cons: Some of the pictures are distorted and hard to read the information
Review: I have used and reccommended the gleim test prep for 20 years, so when it came to taking my CFII written I was happy with the results once again. I usually tell my students to go through the book 4 times and answer all the questions so that none are a surprise. I scored a 92 on the instrument and was quite happy with that.

Worth (Almost) Every Penny
by Steve from Little Rock AR USA 

Pros: Lots of great information to help you pass the exam.
Cons: Does not cover everything (possibly to entice you into the Gleim Ground School).
Review: The chief CFI at the flight school where I'm planning to get my instrument rating recommended this book to use as a study aid for the exam. I bought it and studied it cover to cover. I passed the exam on the first try with a 90%.

The book does not cover everything, which I discovered after working through the ASA Instrument Exam Prep book as well.

Love it!
by Forrest from Bastrop TX USA 

Pros: See above.
Cons: Paper and binding are cheap.
Review: You really never know if you understand a subject until you are tested on it, and that is what this book is all about.
Learn all you can, then answer the questions in this book to find out where you stand.

by Pacman from Grants Pass OR USA 
Pros: The best part of the book is that it gives you information about how to take the test and methods of study.

Good review of FAA exam topics and questions.
by Tom from Portland CT USA

by Cessnadriver from Shelbyville KY USA 
Pros: Good review of a LOT of info!
Cons: Too much skipping around to find figures and legends.
Review: The only bad part of the product is the multiple pages of legends and figures and having to skip around all over the place. Otherwise, a very helpful study tool. I passed my instrument and ins. instructor written.

Gleim Sucks! Poor, Inadequate Graphics & Instruction. Strictly a Poorly Constructecd Gauge.
by Thomas L Thomson from Tulsa OK USA 

Pros: Like, who?
Cons: You. Ya'll hoodwinked me for 20 greenbacks.
Review: The book is so over-organized as to be obtuse; too much on questions re the FAA exam and nothing on teaching. As a former aviation electronics instructor, writer/editor for missile/airplane systems, the title isn't good for anything ~ including a speedy refresher. The authors need to learn something: "KISS: KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID." Readers: Put 20 bucks on the lottery. You'll have a better chance of winning something for your money.

Thought was to buy a book, not a newspaper....
by A Customer from Weed CA USA 

Pros: Good content from GPO
Cons: Bound newprint and ink.
Review: Content is fine, the poor quality of the newsprint and ink is a let down. I still may return the order, because the ink is cheap, and causes a reaction. Cheap copies of government printing office publication.

by Dirk from Glenwood MN USA 
Pros: Great discriptives
Cons: poor printing
Review: Printing quality of pictures i.e. figures and legends poor and at time difficult to read if not unreadable.

Nice to have all the questions
by Joshua from Cambridge, MA 

Review: I used the Gleim book for the Private Pilot exam, and scored 100%. My biggest complaint with the Gleim books is that, though they purport to "explain" why the choices for each question are right and wrong, most of the time, their explanation for the wrong answers is simply, "Answer B is wrong because answer A is correct," which is not terribly helpful. Pros: - All questions listed and categorized. - Laundry list of the bare-minimum information needed to pass. Cons: - Explanations of wrong exam answers often lacking.

Gleim's written reviews for pilot knowledge tests work for me
by Alan J. Folk from Wauconda, Il 

Pros: The explanations given for the right answers are easy to understand and help clarify why a specific answer is correct.
Cons: Figure out some way to read and answer the questions without accidentally uncovering the answers.
Review: I have taken five knowledge tests using the Gleim exam guides which included obtaining an Instrument rating.My test results have always been much better than satisfasctory. I think they continue to put out an excellent product.

by A Customer from Littleton MA USA 
Pros: Seems to have every possible question
Cons: A cd with practice tests would be helpful [editor note:  here is a link to the Gleim Instrument Pilot Test Prep Software]
Review: Great review for the Instrument test.
Was this Review Helpful to you?   Yes   No

Thursday, February 14, 2008
by Gary from Lakeland FL USA 
Pros: It provides explanations in ways that are easy to understand and remember.
Cons: The questions and answers at the end of each section are too far apart, It would better if the answers were on the pages immediately following the questions.
Review: This is an excellent refresher for the IFR pilot or great supplemental study material in preparation for the IFR Written Test. It would also be great for someone considering the IFR rating. It provides a through overview of the knowledge and skills necessary to earn the rating.
Was this Review Helpful to you?   Yes   No
