Pros: Test Prep Software
Cons: Paperback Books
I bought this kit mainly for the Test Prep software. I thought that the little extra in price to get good copies of the FAA manuals and some other written materials would of helped as well, given that it's sometimes hard to study a map or other illustrations when reading a PDF from the screen. Also, I thought having the bag and other tools would come in handy down the road. What it ended up being was a expensive copy of the Test Prep software and a bag of text books that I don't look at. Mainly, my problem with the books is that they are not just paperback, but have the same super thin recycled paper pages you'd get in a grade school workbook. There are also very few full color pages, so illustrations aren't exactly an improvement over reading from the pdfs. I would highly suggest the software to anyone. It's very through and put together well and it has helped me tremendously. I'm nearly though all the sections and plan to take my ground in about another week thanks to it. As for the rest, I'm continuing to read the FAA publications in their free PDF form and probably won't purchase any more books.
