There are several good study guide / quiz sites on line with all the questions. I did the on line stuff for 2 weeks after work then went and got 100% on the test. I'm betting classes would be better for a practical understanding and remembering the stuff for more than 2 minutes after the test. I was already a Mi. MPSCS system instructor for 5 years prior to testing so I did it the quick way.

We currently have a plan to amend the bylaws, suspending all future elections until further notice. We will keep you posted as to the status of your planned availability.

You will, however, be allowed to squeeze this into your schedule.

It has been suggested that you trade your Hummer in on a Jeep to relieve you of the Hummer Club responsibilities.

Anyone know of a place i can find to take the test a bit closer to Monroe?

I've had study books for years, and as a automotive engineer who should have gone to school for an EE degree since i am an electronics nerd, taking a class seems to be a waste of time for me.

Unfortunatly, the FCC still requires a written admistered test, but i have no idea where the heck to find a location.
