Free Study Materials on the InternetThe exams are made up of questions taken from official question pools. These pools can be found at http://www.ncvec.org/
. In the left-hand column, click on the pool that you want. Each pool
is available in three formats: MS Word, PDF, and Text. The MS Word and
PDF version include the Graphic Figures. The text version does not
include the Graphic Figures; you must download the separate Graphics
Which format to choose? The MS Word and text versions can
be edited to remove all the wrong answers so that you can concentrate
on the correct answers. This also saves paper if you print it. With the
Word version, you can leave all four answers to each question, but
highlight the correct one. The text and PDF versions will work on all
computing platforms. I recommend downloading to a portable computing
device (laptop, Ipad, etc.) and studying from that device.
Also see the No-Nonsense Study Guides at http://www.kb6nu.com/tech-manual/
. These Guides explain amateur radio and give the answers to the exam
questions in a conversational fashion. Shown in bold type are phrases
in the answers to questions in the exams.
Two good study sites are:
Ham Academy: http://www.ah0a.org/HA.html
Kid-friendly version for Technician: http://www.nc4fb.org/wordpress/kid-friendly-technician-license-exam-2014-2018-self-study-program/
sites let you concentrate your study on subjects where you are weak.
Both sites let you download study material including audio files so
that you can study off-line. In addition, Ham Academy will keep track
of which questions you miss and ask you these more frequently until you
also has practice exams.
