  • note:
    As of mid 2011, FAA no longer provides the actual questions that appear on your tests. While the questions appearing in this test guide are similar to, and cover the same material as those on the actual test, they are no longer word to word identical. The questions in this guide and others come from 3 primary sources:
    1] Sample questions provided by FAA from years 2011 and later.
    2] Questions from actual FAA test banks from years prior to 2011.
    3] Questions written by publishers to fill in topics not covered by actual FAA samples.
