Not an answer to your question, but I am curious what type of aircraft do you fly and how often?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

hey sharky, I've been browsing the site and just noticed your post. I did this a few years back north of the border, and you definitely need to study. Unless you've had prior training in regs, weather, navigation, etc. there's alot of material to absorb. What I used to help supplement the ground school was test prep software similiar to this...

Test Prep Software

it doesn't cost much, but is well worth it. Good luck

Sharky, just go take the course. It's just for private - I assume that ground school is part of the course. It takes a good while to fly 40 hours, so this must be fairly intensive, and you can't be ariborne all the time. You will have PLENTY of time to study for the written. Another idea, just ask the course contact person how you should prepare.

Won't be that hard, and the course material should include all that you need.

Not sure what's all covered in the written exam... but have you ever tried out Microsoft Flight Simulator for some of their tutorials and videos?

http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulatorX/

not only fun to play with but also very educational!

I stopped my Cessna training after 8 hours when I was a young lad overseas... I let too many other things push in and take my eyes off the goal.

Push through and tell us how it goes...

sharky, you probably didn't notice, but there is one there for just the basic ground school...

Test Prep Software - Private Pilot Study System

I'm just saying, it's definitely worth a look.
