Good news on the dispatcher front! I passed my written exam! Yay! And with a 95% whooo! I was shooting for 100%, but I’ll take a 95.
I used Sheppard Air to prepare, they are amazing. It’s not a hype and if you do their method it works so well. I studied less for this exam and scored higher than for my PPL written. They don’t guarantee money back for dispatchers if you score less than 90%, but for everyone else they do. I did have one question I didn’t see while studying so I may get my money back anyway!
I’m not too happy with the FAA though, I got 10 validation questions. My 80 question test was bumped up to 90 questions. It was more of a psych out that I didn’t appreciate. 1 or 2 extra questions, fine, not 10! They were hard questions too and involved a lot of calculations I wasn’t sure how to do. Oh well, luckily they don’t count in my score, but it did make me nervous.
I’ll be leaving in less than 2 weeks to go do my residency in Cincinnati to actually earn my license. Now onto real studying! I have my colorful flash cards to help with that. Jake says I need to be prepared to pass before I arrive, while I think that’s a little overboard since they will teach me more calculations and using this fun whiz wheel to the side. I do see where he is coming from, so nose to the grindstone for a bit longer.
I promise I’ll have more to write about soon. Lots of things are happening in our life right now, just things need to be confirmed before sharing!
