I used Ham Test Online to pass my Tech and General and am using it to study for my Extra, I highly recommend there program

Agreed, without a doubt, the finest program out there for testing/passing.

i agree.  you can sign up for a free trial and check it out no strings attached.  It causes you to learn rather than merely memorize the material and it makes learning fun (and therefore easy).  And the amount of money you save on books, etc. offsets the cost of the subscription.  I was amazed how quickly I was able to pass the Extra after subscribing...

Not to mention, you have 2 years for the program and if you dont make it, you get a full refund, ie no charge. The program cost the exact same as the ARRL study guide for the upgrade you are doing.

I signed up and 33 days later was an extra (been sooner, but that was the next test session in my area) . You are right, the program made it fun!

I recommend the Gordon West book. I just passed the Extra test and used that along with Hamstudy.org for practice tests.

I used the ARRL book with the CD exams and practice exams here.
