Test-taking is more efficient with ASA -- each ASA Test Prep includes a Supplement just like the one you will be issued at the testing center: the FAA's Computer Testing Supplement. All the FAA legends, figures and full-color charts are reprinted exactly from the government book, and bundled with ASA Test Preps. For comprehensive study and explanatory text along with the FAA questions, rely on ASA's Private Pilot Test Prep. Get prepared with all FAA test questions, instructions and test-taking tips, plus ASA's expertly produced arrangement of test material organized into chapters based on subject matter; including questions, answer choices, explanations (for correct and incorrect answers), answers and reference codes. Topical study -- similar material covered under a common subject heading -- promotes better understanding, aids recall, and thus provides a more efficient study guide. Introductory text and illustrations clarify the subject matter in each chapter. The Private Pilot Test Prep is the pilot's best bet for successful test-taking. Book jacket.
