Base on the FAA exam, this book gives practical information so readers are not only prepared for the tests, but also for the cockpit. Author Gardner covers the required aeronautical knowledge by giving specific tips and techniques, checklists, mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. A full-color foldout example of a sectional chart is provided inside the back cover for use with the numerous interactive exercises throughout the book. Each chapter concludes with sample FAA Knowledge Exam questions. A comprehensive glossary and index are included as well.
