Just a quick recap on ATPL Theory Month 4: Revision.
As I have my revision week booked for November and my first exams booked for December (General Navigation, Meteorology, Instrumentation & Human Performance & Limitations). With these looming I have taken my first look at the question banks this month to get familiar with the phrasing and style of the questions. I have focused my time on General Navigation where I try to work through 30 questions a day and Meteorology where I try to work through 70 questions a day.
I try to do some General Navigation every day so that I get faster with the CRP and also how to do it is fresh in my mind.
I don’t think just learning question bank answers is much help so if I can’t work it out I then look online or through my material to work out how to get the answer some areas are a lot harder than others but I just keep cracking on and working through them.
The work load is high and as I haven’t sat any exams it’s hard to know what the correct exam technique is.
I deliberately left a long time before finishing the material and sitting my first exams (3 months). The reason for this is so I don’t feel time pressure and that I can be really prepared when December rolls round and I sit the exams.
I have a few days away coming up so I am happy to take a break and not deal with any study for the first time in about a year (PPL then ATPL’s). My brain is overloaded and I think that this will be good to have a break and just chill out a little bit.
It is hard work however, and doing it around a full-time job is even harder, you have to be pretty dedicated to keep this up.
