    Congrats! And nice work on the written by the way! They usually try to sneak in at least a couple questions that make zero sense to throw people off!

    I took the King Schools online ground school. I also supplemented the online school with a good many youtube videos on subjects I was having a little harder time with. Sometimes it helps to hear/see it from a different perspective. Many hours of studying and lots of practice tests! I also kind of used my own little memorization aids for things. For example, I was having a hard time keeping the FAR parts straight, so I remember like this:
    airMen......part 60's
    airSpace....part 70's
    airTraffic...part 90's

    alphabetical order from lowest number group to highest.....those are the kind of things that help me keep things straight. Good luck!!

    By the way thanks guys!

    Congratulations on your 100%! I also took the Kings course, but I got an 83%.. Not a horrible score, but I would have told you headed into the exam I'd get a 90%. Obviously, I have noone to blame but myself. Surprisingly, my exam consisted of a lot of "gotcha" questions and very few x-country or weight/balance questions, where I ended up spending probably too much of my learning time.

    We'll see, there's your problem. You could have passed the written sooner at 70%. Perfectionist! :p

    Seriously, congrats on the solo and great score on the written!
