Oral exam flash cards/study tools?
Anyone know of anything in existence to help those of us who have examination problems.
I have one of those brains that totally spirals into blankness, even though I may know the material inside out, so I have to study til it's muscle memory and an unconcious response. As such I'm wondering if there are any flash cards out there for the A and B license tests? (I only need A for now).
If no one has any ideas I'll code it myself and put it up for everyone to use. If anyone wants to volunteer to help compile question/answers that'd be cool - ask me for the format needed.
An efficient approach would have you take the exam without preparation, reason it through and assuming you do fail the test copy down the questions you missed, discuss the correct answers with your proctor and then study up only on the issues missed given the exam material doesn't change. However you could pass it on your initial attempt, I wouldn't be surprised at all if you did even though exams are not your forte. Good luck.
Take the category quiz questions out of the SIM and make flash cards with those. Know not just the answers but also have a reasonable understanding of why. That is what the A-license oral quiz should be coming from anyways. Some of the questions are specific to the categories and don't really apply to an A-licensed jumper, but you'll be able to pick those out of the crowd and you'll understand why they don't apply.
Good luck! Besure to get your case of beer for your A-license.
used to work. Right now it looks like it is down, at least for me, but it was how I got thru the A test.... (I think my instructor was impressed - after a few questions he said, "is there any part you did not memorize?", and we moved onto theory that is not in the SIM, the "what if you..." type questions... Became a 45 minute educational session much more worth while than I expected...
