I finished the first 3 writtens in 4 weeks and so can you

Vivian,

The FAA Knowledge exams are good for 24mos. If you’re confident you’ll be starting training soon and will complete the training within the 24mos (the program takes 7mos) then by all means. If not Id wait till you’re certain you are.

Thanks for the quick response. I’m shooting to start ATP in January. To get my tests done before starting, I believe I read I need to have my deposit and start date in order to get the endorsements from ATP. Is that the process?

Correct. But you could also get an endorsement from Sporty’s (and then Sheppard Air for the rest) by submitting 2 or 3 practice tests with scores above 90.

Also if you’re thinking of starting in Jan you really want to start the process sooner than later as slots do fill up. Further if you’re looking to start with credit for you PPL know that you need at least 78hrs of flight time.

Vivian,

ATP is currently booking several weeks into the future for start dates. If your goal is to start in January, I would start the process very soon.

Logan,

For the Sheppard Air’s IRA test prep software, did you use the recommended Sheppard’s app from the ATP preparation web page? Or was it a different program from Sheppard?

Thanks in advance!

Scott,

Whether you use Sheppard on a mobile device or tablet or PC, I believe you still have to pay Sheppard for the login credentials for each exam prep course. I used my laptop, personally, but it doesn’t really matter which screen you look at the questions on. I imagine a phone would be too small for looking at some of the images, though.

Is the advice to follow the Sheppard study flow as described in their program and not even bother with the explanations or concepts for now. Just pass and learn it during the program and flight instruction etc.
I want to make sure I’m being as efficient as possible. TIA.

Yup!

Straight rote memorization.

Vivian,

Follow Sheppard Air’s Study Strategy to a T and you will be fine, it’s all rote memorization, you will learn the material when you get into your knowledge and flight training.

Vivian,

The study strategy worked for me, but I can see how it may not work for everyone. Use it to your advantage, but do what works best for you.

Also, in order for ATP to give you an endorsement, you have to have the orientation completed, 59 videos in total.

Sportys will give you an endorsement, but only if you spend the 200+$$ and get there PPL package. Not just the Private app.

Logan, you was referring to a refund regarding foreflight? How do you get that? Finish a certain written prior to the program or what?

Keaton,

Assuming Logan was talking about this, I screenshotted it right from ATP’s webpage that Tory linked above:

Thanks Brady. I tried looking it up on the ATP website but didn’t look hard enough obviously. Thanks though.

Not a problem Keaton, things pass by me too. I guess that is why there’s at least two pilots in the flightdeck before pushing back from the gate. :wink:
