Ham Radio Exam Preparation for the General Class License.

Study the complete pool of questions and answers that can appear on the amateur radio general class license exam. The questions and answers are the exact questions published by the FCC. All questions are multiple choice.

See your proficiency for each of the topics you study. Ham General tracks your proficiency so you always know how you are doing.

When you select a wrong answer, Ham General shows you the correct answer. This immediately draws your attention to the correct answer. Turn off Auto Correct on the Settings page if you don't want to use it.

When you take the exam, the multiple choice answers may appear in any order. Ham General randomly selects the order for the answers so you do not associate an answer to a question by its position in the list of answers. Turn this off on the Settings page if you want the answers to always appear in the same order.

Sometimes an answer may be easier to answer because the previous question provided hints to the current question. Go to the Settings page and turn on Shuffle Questions so that the questions within a topic appear in random order.

As you study, Ham General tracks the questions that you fail to answer the most. Choose Study By Weakness to have Ham General present questions you are the weakest on.

No immediate feedback

There are many good things about this app that you could study by topic It's nicely laid out and have some options. However the one big thing it's missing for me is it does not have immediate feedback to tell you if you got a question wrong or right. You need to go through the whole test and since sometimes I sit down and study and only do five or six questions at a time it's not useful to get my results back later.
Also it would be great if there was a way only to review the questions you've gotten wrong in the past and keep on reviewing them to you get them right.
For me I like the app however there is another one out there that gives you immediate feedback and that is more useful to me.

Super useful, minor tweaks are all I can wish for

I loved being able to use this offline, and the review after a practice test, as many times as you wish, is what helped me to pass the General at the same time as my Tech. The only thing I’d like to add would explanations similar to the hamstudy site, and or notes that you can add for your own use, something you can review after you grade the test or select the answer on a flash card. Grey utility though, super fair price, and thanks!

Excellent test prep

Excellent means of preparing for your exam. Used the tech (free) one first and this one is just the same. The best way to use it seems to be to take several exams to build statistical data and then work the problems sorted by difficulty. Repeat the process a few times over several days or weeks. I passed with a 34/35 after using this app and some study guide PDFs that are freely available online. Well worth the purchase price. I'll be using this same brand again when I go for my extra.
