Format: Paperback
Bought this to help me revise in preparation for the IMC theory exam. Although written 20 years ago and updated about 10 years later, it's still very much valid and gives a flavour of the sort of questions asked in the exam itself. The book consists of 6 full test papers, each having a flight to plan using the whizz-wheel (CRP-1 navigation computer) and 25 multiple choice questions. Each answer includes a clear explanation and references. All the material can be found in the Trevor Thom theory book 5, which should be read and its own Q&A sections completed first. All bar one of the flight plans used the Southern England 1:500,000 chart - the other required the central chart, but by then I was happy with the flight planning aspects so didn't bother with that.

I found the exam itself was very familiar with the test paper, similar style of question and format. As I worked through the book, my scores did improve - partly because I learnt some exam technique and also re-inforced some of the learning points. In any case, I got a good pass so it must have been beneficial.

The book and the exam still use the terminology for Radar Information Service and Radar Advisory Service, which were replaced last year. You might well want to revisit what these are/mean because they don't match exactly the new terms and a question about it might appear in your paper. Also ensure you get the appropriate chart for the paper when you sit it - my latest chart didn't have an NDB on it referred to in the test paper - it had been switched off and removed.

Although you are allowed 2 hours for the exam, I took about an hour for each of the 6 papers in the book, meaning it can be done in a couple of evening's study if you work hard. If you've done the Navigation PPL exam recently and/or use a whizz-wheel regularly, you'll find that part fairly straightforward.

Format: Paperback
Very useful book. nicely laid out but do bear in mind it is 2000 edition and thus eleven soon to be twelve years out of date.
for example it refers to CAA publication CAP 53 which has been succeeded
But it is good at emphasising accuracy when working with nav aids etc and covers all corners of the rating including limitations and privileges.

8/10
