This is the edition to purchase if you plan to take your General Exam after July 1, 2019. If your plan is to take it before then, please see the earlier edition of this program, under the same title.
Everything you need to prepare for your General Class ham license. Covers every question on the General exam.
Memorizing 400+ random 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 General Class License, great! General is certainly more challenging than Technician, but The Fast Track to Your General Class Ham Radio License explains the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer on the General Class 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.
To get your General Class license you must pass a multiple-choice test. The General license test consists of 35 questions drawn from a pool of 462. Memorizing the answers to 462 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.
Best of all, once you've passed your exam you'll have a solid grounding in ham radio basics.

Rave reviews for The Fast Track To Your Technician Class Ham Radio License:
"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."
"The Audible copy was GREAT because Michael Burnette is an exciting and entertaining and memorable guide!"
"Thank you! Thank you a thousand times over. I bought your book in order to study for my tech license(Kindle version) and the audiobook and I loved them! I originally bought ** *****'s CD's and they confused me. I bought yours and it made learning simple and enjoyable. I did this to surprise my husband of 30 years who has had a license sincethe early parts of our marriage. He has asked me off and on to consider getting a license and I kept saying no. Well with the help of your book and audiobook, I was able to blow his doors off and pass my technician exam first try. Now if you only had volumes for general and expert, the world would be perfect. Seriously thanks again."
