From left to right...

Im not close to an instructor , just thought id add that I recieved all kinds of skydiving books as well as the SIM and read them all prior to AFF 1 ... I didnt understand much but then when id hear Mike talk about something, the info I read would start to pop into my head. Granted I was also the type to read school history text books the first week of school so maybe its a personal thing with me but I say learn as much as you can from resources that are valid.

Section 4 for AFF related stuff and then anything else that interests you Smile

I'd wait until after AFF L-1 before you take up the big blue sleeping pill. (It used to be called that).

Your job next weekend is to listen hard and do 100% of what your Instructor tells you to do.

To answer the original question, leave it in the bathroom, that's how many get through it . . .

I have found the best way to read any kind of reference material is to locate the answers to questions (i.e. - practice tests, scenarios, your own, etc.).

I personally find that skimming the text for answers to questions leads to a lot of ancillary absorption of information.

You'll find that the recommended reading for license progression will take you front to back in no time and you'll be as smart as %almighty_dz_dot_commer%!(your choice of ADDC of course)

But, as some have mentioned, you may want to hold off until after your FJC....
