My advies would be sit the harder subjects first and finish off with the easier subjects. The logic being if your running out of time to complete all of your exam subjects then its better to have to finish the easier subjects.

No seriously, I am looking through the study guide now, and I think splitting module 1 up will make it a bit lighter without drifting too far off the guide (just need to focus on a few subjects at a time).

Dunno quite how we got onto hemorrhoids however...

Further to my previous post for the study/revision inept - I decided it would be good to compile two handy reference sheets - one of formulas (V=IR, max. thoretical radio range etc) and one just full of various numbers that need remembering (TUC charts and the like). Not only does the process of making these help with putting the numbers into your skull but they are good to have hanging around - a quick once over a day helps to consolidate... Good revision tool too, I hope.

Firstly remove your chosen socks for the day from the drawer...

I've just ordered some index cards like this:



I'm going to write a question on one side, and an answer on the other so that I can test myself and get my study buddies and anyone else I can find to test me on it!! Hopefully it'll help me remember - I guess I could make a handful of formula cards as well.

Anyone tried this? It was recommended by a few people. How many formulae (sp?) are there anyway? I am guessing a lot!!

P.S. IB - which subject(s) are you reading at the moment?

You're going to have to write a lot of cards to cover the syllabus, but I spose that is the point - writing them is a learning aid too. You could perhaps market them afterwards as a Helitorque confuser type thing!

At the moment (obviously right now I am procrastinating by posting here!) I am reading module 1 (which consists of Air Law, HP&L, PoF, AGK and VFR Comms). Am on frame 6 of 14, I have 6 forumlas so far plus your classics for temp conversion. Have yet to open the big bad book that is Air Law too (shouldn't be any formulas in there though...)!

Might do another sheet for all those laws too; Boyles, Charles et al...

Hi IB!

I have started the course now! Just done week one (almost). I still have a couple of pages to revise and a few worksheets to do, but I now see what you mean. I am going to have to order the entire supply of index cards I think! Sad

Instead I have made notes, but will be doing a bit with the flashcards tomorrow. What I did try (and I have now practically lost my voice!) is recording the Air Law ICAO abbreviations and definitions onto a CD. By god there are a lot of them! It took 4 and half hours of continuous recording time and I think I came out of the vocal booth with Hypoxia (very hot in there)!

5 CDs later I have the first tiny section of Air Law to listen to when I am driving around and cleaning the house! I'm going to get really sick of my own voice by the time I've learnt them! Anyway, lets see if it helps at all. I think it helped a bit that I was reading them out as I was recording. Why are there so many?!!!! Crying or Very sad

Anyway, lets continue to share hints, tips and information - it great to know there are others out there going through the same hard slog!

Let me get this right - it took you 4.5 hours to record just the air law abbreviations?

Jeez...

Might give it a go though!

It did indeed. Crying or Very sad

But I did leave a second or two gap between the abbreviation and the answer, to give me a chance to guess before it tells me what it means!

Can't see me doing this for the whole syllabus though, I'll need about a million CDs!!

You're right! I have so far written out over 1000 cards on Air Law!
