The Private Oral Exam Guide is designed for student pilots training for the Private Pilot Certificate. All the subjects a Private Pilot candidate will be tested on during checkrides and review flights are covered. Chapters are dedicated to certificates and documents, weather, determining performance and limitations, airplane systems, cross-country flight planning, night operations, and aeromedical factors. References for further study are provided throughout the book, and additional study questions conclude each chapter. Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (which are identified so readers know where to go for further study) as well as interviewing FAA examiners. This book teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner’s scrutiny. This book will identify the candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, increasing study efficiency. Approx. 208 pages, paperback.

Pros: Sporty's delivers products fast. I ordered my items and had them in less than 48 hours. This book is a great way to prep not only for the oral exam but great for overall refresher to keep current. Cons: I should have ordered it sooner. I took my check ride yesterday and sailed through the oral like it was nothing. My DE just could not ask me anything that I had not already study from this book as it pretains to most operations.

Pros: A fantastic booklet to review all topics covered on the Oral Exam. Topics covered in great detail. Cons: Paperback, so less durable than a hardcover book, but nicely sized to fit in most pilot bags.

Pros: Information was presented in an orderly fashion. Cons: At times, I seemed to suffer from TMI (too much information) but I'm sure it will all be helpful when the actual oral test takes place.
