This review is from: The Private Pilots License Course: Flying Training (Private Pilots Licence Course) (Paperback)
The edition 2003, as available on Amazon, isnt the current publication which was revised in 2009
The Thom series are widely used by the CAA examination board as a reference to examination questions (as shown in my examiners answer book) but we use the Pratt AFE series in our fast track 1-5 day PPL ground courses too and would recommend both as really there is little to choose between them.
It is always useful to look at a range of different books on the same subject as sometimes a new perspective can make something more understandable. Students should also consider that it is essential to complete all the questions (in each chapter) on each subject to promote a better, lasting understanding. Practice examination papers are also useful but should not be used to learn the subject as that defeats the object of the examination process. Good sound knowledge combined with sensible application and pro active situational awareness is the foundation of being a safe, professional pilot.
Many students look at the examinations as an obstruction to gaining the licence which is a shame. Flying is a knowledge and rule based discipline and education plays a major part in those goals for all of us. Learn and be safe!
