Need a study plan to help you get ready for the Technician license exam?  This study plan will prepare you to pass the exam in approximately ten weeks?

The Technician license exam consists of 35 questions selected from a pool of 396 questions.  The question pool is divided into 10 subelements (T0–T9).  Subelements are further divided into a total of 35 groups (topics).  One exam question is randomly selected from each group. You must answer a minimum of 26 questions correctly on the exam to obtain your Technician license.

The difference between the group flashcards and the subelement flashcards is the number of questions contained in each.  Groups contain smaller numbers of questions than subelements.

BOOST your license exam score

Accumulate the missed question numbers from subelement tests in a file named subelements.txt.  At the end of the subelement tests, a list of missed + unanswered questions is displayed.  Copy and paste the question numbers (one per line) into the review file for later use with the question review facility at the link below.  Don't worry about duplicate question numbers, the review facility will eliminate them.  Just keep adding missed question numbers to the file.
