Congrats all you guys getting your extra!

I failed the extra when I gave it a shot. Honestly, it's irritating since I'm even a member of the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society, but that doesn't help at all with operations and rules. So I downloaded the questions and started studying, reading through them when I have a few minutes here and there.

Yeah thanks! I never studied for the tech and general, so this readin' and learnin' stuff is weird. :-) It's truly humbling to get a 50% on a QRZ practice test the same day that one of your projects is launched. It's really a good thing!

I have used this site and really liked it. If you register it keeps your score and you can select the specific areas to get tested on.

FWIW, I am getting my VE credentials updated and so we only need two more Extra VEs to give general and extra tests.
