Oral Exam Guide - Private Pilot

Written to help prepare applicants for their oral exams with FAA examiners. Using a question-and-answer format, each Oral Exam Guide lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct, ready responses. Pilots will find these Guides indispensable tools in both planning for what to expect during the airplane checkride, and mastering the subject matter. Instructors rate them as excellent preparation for students, as well as preps for Flight Reviews, aircraft transitions, and as general refresher material.

The Private Oral Exam Guide is designed for student pilots training for the Private Pilot Certificate. All the subjects a Private Pilot candidate will be tested on during checkrides and review flights are covered. Chapters are dedicated to certificates and documents, weather, determining performance and limitations, airplane systems, cross-country flight planning, night operations, and aeromedical factors. References for further study are provided throughout the book, and additional study questions conclude each chapter. Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (which are identified so readers know where to go for further study) as well as interviewing FAA examiners.

This book teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner’s scrutiny. It identifies the candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.

Now includes a new chapter on Scenario-Based Training by noted SBT expert, 2009 National Flight Instructor of the Year, and recipient of the 2010 NATA Award for Excellence in Pilot Training, Arlynn McMahon.

Scenario-based questions have become an integral part of the Practical Test and an important tool in an examiner’s toolbox. Student responses to these “open-ended” questions demonstrate an understanding of the big picture and convey the practical application of what’s important and why. This new chapter provides insight into these scenario-based questions and will be invaluable to students preparing for their checkride.

Good review
by A Customer from Berkeley CA USA

Helpful pre-private checkride review book
by David from Odenton MD USA 

Pros: Consise
Cons: None really
Review: I found this book helpful. By the time you get to this stage, you should know most of the material. I went through with a highlighter and highlighted anything I didn't feel comfortable with. Then I went back a just re-read the highlighted materials a few time. Was very useful I thought. Only knock is on the weather charts where there are no pictures to help and you need to reference another source.

Excellent Book
by Robert M. from Central,CT 

Pros: Loads of information that's easy to find
Cons: None
Review: Do not take your checkride until you have read this book. I read through it a couple times, and my checkride was as easy as can be. Pretty much any question the examiner is going to ask is addressed in the book. Highly recommended.

No expectations; pleasantly surprised
by Will from Henrico VA USA 

Pros: 'Go anywhere' size; concise and well organized
Cons: None
Review: I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this product. I was very pleased once I started reading and using this exam guide. The questions and answers are all concise and well organized. Each item is also well referenced if the reader wants to quickly expand on the subject. I also liked the Additional Study Questions at the end of each chapter. These are generally questions that have answers specific to your training aircraft or will require a little more head scratching.

by Dan from Oklahoma 
Pros: Reference Aid...Compact......Excellent Study Tool
Cons: No body referred me to it earlier
Review: As with any test preparation, study time is of essence. Recommendation is to have this book at the beginning of the flight portion of learning and apply the concepts in parts. This product is extremely useful in preparing for the oral and and check-ride. Reading the various parts while preparing for final testing allows one to gleen vital knowledge and enhance confidence with pilotage and flying skills. Passed test with confidence, and great reference after the test(s).

by A Customer from Santa Cruz, CA 
Review: The book gets into a lot of detailed information that some readers may find unnecessary. I think to be a good pilot, there is always a need for ANY information that can be provided. Read it, pass your test and then decide if you would like to impliment the info. I highly recommend it.
