This primary FAA source handbook for the Knowledge Exams covers the IFR system as well as aerodynamics, flight instrumentation, attitude flying and navigation as they apply to the instrument pilot.

This edition features information applicable to both conventional steam-gauge instrumentation as well as glass cockpits found in technically advanced aircraft. The new information is well separated from the traditional discussions of the "6-pack" and covers flight support systems (AHRS and ADC), pictorial displays, flight management systems (FMS), primary flight display (PFD) and multi-function display (MFD), synthetic vision, advanced technology systems such as ADS, and safety systems such as traffic advisory systems. Also incorporated are FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS) tenets such as single-pilot resource management, scenario-based training, and learner-centered grading. Hazard identification, as well as task management, automation management, and risk management supplement the human factors discussion. The chapters on attitude instrument flying and basic flight maneuvers are split into separate sections dedicated to analog instrumentation and electronic flight displays. The chapter on emergency operations has been expanded to include the failures applicable to operating a glass cockpit. Approx. 392 pages, paperback.

Pros:
Good to have for instrument study and reference. While the volume is available as a free download from the FAA, a print copy can be marked up for study, and used as a ready reference.

Not Recommended

Pros:
It has many pictures
Cons:
It does a poor job of explaining the concepts/ details needed in preparation for an instrument written exam.

If you are preparing for an instrument written exam, do not waste your time and money on this book. Instead get the most recent ASA instrument test prep book and the ASA Pilot's Manual - Instrument Flying book. These two books (plus the most recent FAR/ AIM) do a much better job of focusing your attention on what you need to know for the exam (as opposed to what might be nice to know) and in explaining the details.
