    Is this book any good? If not what else can I use to supplement cosgrave (which seems a little light on the air law sections from what I can work out)

    The instructor has given me some trial questions. I got around pass mark without really trying too hard, but a lot of those were educated guesses (there were only 3 options and in a lot of cases with a bit of common sense it was easy to discount 2 wrong answers) and it would be nice to 'know' more answers. Even reading back through cosgrave a lot of them weren't in there.

    Is knowing the answers to a lot of the trial questions enough ie. are a lot of the trial ones based on the real exam questions? I've no idea how it works, are there multiple exam papers or do you just get the same one until you pass it?

    That said, its safety at the end of the day, so I dont really want to be scraping through on a multiple choice paper.
    Thanks

    I think the pass mark is 75%, i just took Air Law, Human Performance and Aircraft tech and passed all three just using Cosgrove 8th Edition, didn't feel i needed any supplements. 86% 100% 86%. Just studying Met, aaahhh. Just keep reading it over and over, i am 54 so no youngster
    but didn't find them too bad.

    Just see the last bit, there are 3 papers, if you fail the first, you then take paper two and if you fail the third paper my instructor said take up fishing.
    Use the revision exams they do help. Have you tried Flexwing Scotland and Clear Prop and To the Clouds, all good exam papers to try.

    Thanks all. I'll have another look through cosgrove.

    I think I read somewhere that sometimes the chapters overlap a bit, maybe I need to look in the other chapters. For example there were a few things on my sample air law exam about altimeter settings etc which weren't covered, but on reflection I bet they are in the other sections.

    Will also try the websites listed above. I didn't want to just use sample exams, as its too easy to just learn the questions you have, then fail spectacularly when when they change slightly.
