Relies on Jeppesen text book too much.

  • Pros: it does have the questions and answers in it
  • Cons: you need to buy the Jeppesen text book to go with it, and weed out the answers from it
  • Review: I have both this and the Gleim equivalent. An example: the first chapter on this book has the sections "Pilot Training", "The history of flight" and "The training process" Then the first question that follows is "With respect to the certification of airmen, which is a category of aircraft?" and gives 3 choices. It does provide the correct answer next to the question, but all the study material preceding it was useless. The Gleim, for the same part of the test, and just before that very same question, has the following section headings: "General Definitions", "night", "aircraft categories", "airplane classes", "rotorcraft classes", "lighter than air classes". So with the Gleim, you have all the information you need to answer the questions in the study units preceding them, whereas with the Jeppesen the information is spread out in the corresponding chapters of the big text book. Unless you need to read all the irrelevant blah blah that won't be in the test, like to look at the colorful pictures, and don't mind spending $ on the text book to go with this guide, I would recomend that you buy the Gleim instead.
