Default Getting my HAM license

Being studying the ARRL Technician book for two weeks.
Taking the test this Sat June 5th.
I don't see an issue passing the test. Getting between 96 to 100% on the practice test. I actually enjoying studying the materials and probably will continue to General license while I am in the mood...

keep studying and go for general!!!

That's great that you are getting your license!

With that kind of score on the practice tests you'll be in great shape!
