Anyone who passed extra exam, is the question pool about the same or different from GROL pool? Of course minus the 6 aircraft, minus
5 marine and the 5 radar questions. Thanks

Extra question pool is 712
GROL pool is 600 (says wiki )

Extra 50 questions
GROL 100 questions (says wiki)

I don't know how closely it follows, but the GROL is essentially the Amateur Extra Class exam.  I took an online practice GROL test and passed it with no study.

I disagree on GROL being like amateur extra.   There is very little Theory in the GROL examination.  Not much on antennas nothing on propagation. Hey

   I known that this is ancient history, but there was a brief moment in time when the FCC
was granting partial credit for the technical portion of the GROL exam if you held a valid
Advanced class license which they considered equivalent to their old Second Class Phone.

When I passed the Commercial license test, it made Amateur tests look weak...

Now they are ALL weak.

No technical knowledge required!

I'm an extra and earned my FCC 1st telephone while in high school.  I don't recall any similarities or cross credits, to the best of my knowledge.

Ditto.  From the mid-sixties.  Second, then First.  No credit, no similarities, other than perhaps a circuit or two.  Definitely no propagation on those commercial exams.  Maybe some confusion with radiotelegraph licenses.  20WPM extras receive code credit.....still do.
