Hello, I am a student pilot who just finished my first xc. I am starting to panic because I am now only going through things in ground school that I feel I should have learned at the beginning of flight training. I know I am nowhere near ready for the written, and I think I should have completed ground school before flying. My question to all of you is this; did you do ground school and flight training separately or at the same time? How did it, or how is it currently working out for you? Also, would it be advisable to pause flying to focus on completing the written exam? I am committed to this endeavor I have started, but I am against wasting time or money.
