Received my ticket last month, and already passed my General last Saturday. Though it seems like forever for it to post of the FCC website, considering that my technician was posted 3 days after I had passed the exam.
Now the real learning starts........Though I really don't know where to really start.
Ordered the AE book for my final upgrade, but it already looks scary from the reading I've already done online.
I purchased all the extra class manuals and the quick question/answer guide, but spent most of my time on http://www.hamradiolicenseexam.com
and in 33 days and 33 hours of studying, passed my exam for extra class.
