Annoyed and dissatisfied

  • By Chris from Seattle, WA USA on Wednesday, July 30, 2014
  • Pros: Repetition and breaks down solutions
  • Cons: Takes forever to answer all questions and you waste your time
  • Review: I've used Gleim for my private SEL, instrument and FII. Passed all three with a 90, 85, and 90 respectively. I purchased the Gleim book again for the ATP deadline two months ago and was very disappointed. It's a huge book so I jumped into it and paid for the online ground school so I knew this test in and out. The biggest annoyance is how many pages there are of just repetition over things that are easy. 80 questions on how to calculate weight and balance on a Beech 1900. They take 5 minutes each and there are 80! After about 5 you get it down and you're ready to move on. What I was so disappointed over was the fact that I could tell you the ins and outs of the beech 1900, dc9, 737 and 727 along with all the other chapters for the 121 exam. Needless to say I was passing gleims practice tests and was confident I was ready. I failed the 121 exam with a 64%. Want to know how many questions I got on the beech 1900, dc 9, 737 or 727? Zero. That alone was half the book. My confidence is shaken with gleim, and I will be supplementing my next written with another test prep to ensure a passing score.

  • Pros: Good explanations for each answer
  • Cons:
  • Review: It is not the best study guide for the ATP written due to the fact that it includes all the questions for the Dispatcher test as well. You end up studying a lot more questions that do not have the possibility of being on the test.
