I had some iTunes credit I needed to burn so I downloaded the Shortys app for the PPL, started going through this but noticed there is no where to really read chapters for this information. I have been reading through these Q&A’s and noticed most of the pilots recommend really just memorizing the questions, going through the practice exam twice and getting over a 90%.
Then I noticed the learning mode has 719 questions to memorize. (Wow!). To give you a little background, I’m looking to start beginning of March due to a vacation I’ve had planned that would take me out two weeks (also read it’s better to not miss any time in your first 9 months). Before I start it seems I am going to help myself by completing my PPL and Instrument written exams. Is this true? How long are these exams when I actually take them? Since the PPL is good for 2 years is the instrument the same?
Anything else you recommend would be great, going into this coming from the mortgage industry.
