    Looking for a good course to go through to do oral checkride prep. Did the written a few months ago and I think I remember about half of it :)

    Just took my checkride last month - I agree, the ASA guide is what you need. Know it inside and out and you will definitely be prepared. If something doesn't make sense or if you know you don't know the topic well, use other sources to augment.

    Another vote for the ASA oral exam guide.

    As far as areas of emphasis to look up, DPEs in my area seem to like to hit lost coms procedures, VMC vs IMC, when to begin the approach from a clearance limit (understanding that there may be a difference between the book answer and the actual practical application), etc. Obstacle departures and minimum climb performance seems to be getting more attention as well.

    Mock oral with your CFI?

    As much as I'm not an MzeroA fan. I downloaded the audiobooks he put out and listened to then nonstop a lot of it stuck without me even realizing it.

    Yet another vote for the ASA guide
    At least the first. Even better the second...

    (I studied the ASA guide and had a mock oral with not-my-CFII and nailed both the oral/flight portions of the practical)
