Don’t be a failure!  Pass The A&P Test The First Time

Nobody wants to fail the A&P tests and look like a failure.  We invest lots of money and time to get the A and P License so don’t go screw it up and fail the tests.  Lucky for us, there are multiple products to help us pass the airframe and powerplant tests. To get the A and P license, you must pass the oral, written and practical test for each subject. Those subjects are General, Airframe and Powerplant.  The written part of the test was probably the most diffacult part of testing.  You must pass with a score of at least 70%.  Airframe and powerplant written tests are about 100 questions each pulling from a pool of 1000 questions.  The general is 70 questions with a pool of around 700.  That is a lot of information to remember.

My Dauntless Video Review





Taking the A&P tests do not have to be a nail biting experience.   Planning ahead and studying your butt off is the sure way to ace the tests.  Studying can get a little overwhelming so it is important to do it in stages.  Chances are you wont be taking all the tests at the same time, so study one test at a time.  Once you pass it, move on to the next.   In my experiencing it is best to memorize the question and the correct answer and nothing more.  Which ever method you choose, make sure you stick to it and do the actual studying.  The best software test prep won’t do you any good unless you use it!    Remember, this test is just to get you your A and P license, once you have that, the real learning begins.
