This self-study program was designed to prepare young candidates to pass the Technician license exam. It is a “memory based” program that provides no theory or explanations.
The Technician license exam is comprised of 35 questions selected from a pool of 396 questions contained in ten subelements (T0-T9). Subelements are divided into 35 groups (topics). One exam question is randomly selected from each topic to make up the license exam. You must correctly answer a minimum of 26 questions on the 35-question exam to obtain a Technician license.
This is how the self-study program works. You study topic flashcards and test yourself on the flashcards until you are scoring 85 or higher on the tests. Then you test yourself on entire subelements until you are scoring 85 or higher on the tests. When you have completed all ten subelements (T0-T9), you test yourself with sample license exams until you are scoring 85 or higher on the exams.
