    Been putting off taking the written test for quite some time. No other excuse then not being able to devote steady/consistent time to studying for it (family of 5 has been providing plenty of interruptions - haha). I'm getting to the end of my training (just have check ride prep) so it was time. My CFI is also a Ground School instructor so over the many months, we've had quite a number of hours spent on ground. So I took off work Friday, spent all day Friday 9am to 9pm studying, followed by the same on Saturday, followed by the same on Sunday. I have all the Gleim materials and basically went through the ~900 test prep questions they have. Then this morning (Monday) I got up and spent a couple light hours reviewing stuff and took the test at 1pm. Finished in a little over an hour which was contrary to how I thought it'd go. Maybe the random 60 questions that were selected for my exam were on the easier side - who knows. Ended up missing 1 and got a 98%! I will say this - there were a LOT of test questions that looked VERY familiar when compared to the 900 prep test questions Gleim has. Even down to the Sectionals that were/are used!

    HaHa... I think they took 2 percentage points off because I waited so long to take it :confused: Actually, after looking at the subject area of the question I got wrong, I think I know exactly the question that was in error. It had two answers extremely close and I apparently ruled out the wrong one. It was on the definition of Load Factor. Sneaky little gotcha words they put in there. But thank you, I will definitely enjoy a beer or couple... I'm heading out to Havasu to enjoy the Desert Storm Poker Run - so I'll be sure to raise a toast to having that behind me :cheers:

    Haha, right?! Pictures always speak a 1000 words, right? Last time I was there, some pretty amazing pictures of the "scenery" (aside from the boats).
