Fast Track Ham License Series
Here's everything you need to pass your Extra Class exam, completely updated for the July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2024 examinations.
Rave reviews for The Fast Track Ham Radio License programs:
"This is a great book. So many of the study guides are just question dumps and it's a horrible way to learn, at least for me. I need an explanation and something to keep my interest and Mr. Burnette's book fit the bill perfectly. I echo all the sentiments of the other reviewers, the author is a top notch communicator."
"Michael Burnette's ham radio exam prep book is the most useful and comprehensive book that I have found on this subject and makes getting ready for this exam not only easy, but fun. I have learned so much since studying this guide and feel ready to take this exam at a moment's notice. The guide has a wealth of information, not only on the questions and answers, but on the exam itself that is sure to put any test taker's mind at ease."
"Using these books and audio are like studying with a buddy. Michael is a great teacher that makes learning the material easy and fun. The ONLY way to study for your test."
Memorizing answers is hard -- and boring. Learning is easy! If you've made the decision to open up your ham radio world by going for the Extra Class License, great! The latest edition of the Extra class exam is certainly challenging. The question bank includes over 600 questions, some 25% of which are new or revised since the last edition.
The Fast Track to Your Extra Class Ham Radio License explains the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer on the exam so you'll understand and remember the subject matter.
Created by an experienced ham and adult educator, it's like having your own, patient, experienced, good-humored mentor for the exam. (One reason Michael is a frequent presenter at major ham conventions.)
To get your Extra Class license you must pass a multiple-choice test. The Extra license test consists of 50 questions drawn from a pool of 621. Memorizing the answers to 621 disconnected questions is difficult, but The Fast Track makes getting your upgrade easier by explaining the logic behind each correct answer.
It's simple: When you understand the material, and you have a context for the material, you remember the answers and pass the test. We might even have a little fun along the way. (This may be the only amateur radio book to teach an astronomical concept with a nacho cheese analogy.)
