    This was useful for studying for the FOI written test but has also been a very handy reference now that I'm an instructor.

    Pros

    If you want to achieve your CFI rating then this is the information you need (to rotely memorize)!

    Cons

    The book is also full of abstract examples, many of which do not fit real world scenarious. I think if the FAA consulted real world CFI's when they updates rhis book it could have been much better.

    General Comments

    Overall rating of 2 stars due to the fact that this book is guilty of exactly what the publications says not to do, which is rote memorization. It is recommended only because there is no other way around it.
