"I found this to be an excellent way to study for the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam. I went through a formal ground school and textbook prior to taking this video course. To study for the test, I watched each video segment (around 30 minutes to 1.5 hours each) and then used the included prepware software to work through the corresponding questions for that segment. The lectures were perfectly targeted to the essential information covered on the FAA written exam and an excellent ground school review. When I was done, I had completed all questions for the Knowledge Exam and I was ready to pass my test. It was great to see several of the premier avaition authors in the video. I've read their articles in AOPA Pilot and Flight Training magazines, so it was nice to put a face to the name. Overall my retention was excellent and I was completely prepared for the Knowledge Exam."
"Yesterday I passed my FAA PAR Exams with 93% only by going through all the videos in the ASA ground school and repeatedly taking the tests over a 2 week period. Between the study videos and full time employment, i was able to pass the FAA test in a month devoting a couple of hours each day to view the video lessons and work on the practice test. Thank you team ASA for organizing the content so well as it saves a lot of time yet ensures you know everything that is needed to keep you safe and a competent airman. Thank you!"
