    Great value!  Time owned: more than 12 months
    Purchased last year. Started studying, but lost interest in upgrading. Got the bug again this spring. Hit it hard for 2 weeks, got a 92% on first try at extra. Money well spent.

    Great Study Method  Time owned: more than 12 months
    I used Ham Test Online as an additional study tool, along with the ARRL Ham Test Study Guides. HamTestOnline's proprietary algorithm helped me to focus and work on my weak areas. I highly recommend HamTestOnline.

    Excellent Ham Test Prep   Time owned: more than 12 months
    I used this to study for all three ham tests. I passed all three on the first try. I earned 100% on tech, 95% on General and 90% on Extra.

    The study materials were easy to use and provided sufficient tutorials to be helpful without inundating me with extraneous information.

    The only reason I scored slightly lower on each successive exam was that I changed my threshold for success. In tech, I was all about "acing" the exam. In General and Extra, I was only focusing on passing the exams, as I finally figured that I earn the same license whether I get 100% or 75%.

    I would highly recommend this product to others who are preparing to sit for the various ham licenses.

    Great study method  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
    I tried a few years ago to study on my own and quickly gave up. This time I was able to stay focused and easily learn the material. I may just try for extra.

    Makes passing easy  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
    I started out studying on my own using free materials online. Although the questions are available along with practice exams on many sites, I soon realized I wanted a more guided approach. HamTestOnline is much more than a practice test. It guides you through the material providing explanatory material in easy to understand chunks along the way. It tracks your right and wrong answers as you study, repeating questions you missed and not wasting your time with the ones you clearly answer successfully. Over the course of a few months I studied 30-40 minutes 3-4 times a week. I passed the Technician and General in the same sitting. I studied a few more weeks on and off and then passed the Extra exam the first time as well. I think many people pass with even less study time than I took, but the way the course is structured you can study at the pace that works for you and have confidence that when it tells you that you are ready to take the test, you will pass. Definitely worth the modest amount of money involved - not much more than a full set of books when you think about it. Highly recommended.

    Just write the check!  Time owned: more than 12 months
    I found "" while looking for materials to assist me in not only passing all three tests, but also master the material behind the questions. I settled on the ARRL Study guides AND HAMTESTONLINE.COM for drill and identifying week spots.

    In spite of the gallbladder attack I was undergoing during and following the 3 hr drive to the testing site, the exams were anti-climactic. I'd answer a question, walk around the room, stick my head out the door to be sick, and then stand at my spot and answer another.

    I was so well-prepared by using HTO, that I still maxed Tech and General in about 35 minutes tops, including the time spent grading the exam.

    About a month later and a week in the hospital, I took and aced the Extra exam.

    Seriously... best online tools available bar none.

    Great way to study  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
    Easy to learn, with electronics as my background and being a Ham (from VU land back in the 80's) it was a great refresher for me. I took all 3 tests within a span of 3 weeks and was able to get my U.S Extra class licence. Ham TestOnline was concise and practice questions match and feel like real test. I highly recommend anyone wishing to get their Ham radio license to use Ham TestOnline, the website is designed to be very user friendly and informative. Thanks Ham TestOnline!

    Excellent Study Tool  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
    I have been a Ham for 21 years. I recently retired and was still holding my Tech license. It served me well as I lived on VHF/UHF.

    I decided this year to expand my horizons. after research and nudging from friends I decided to use Ham Test Online. I purchased General on 8/6/17 and Extra on 8/7/17. I buckled down and let the system work its magic. The adaptive nature of the system made learning easy. If I kept missing questions in an area it kept hitting me with them until I got it right. The more I missed the more it hit me with it. Nice system. The system can be modified to your taste. If you only want to work in a particular area you can turn off other areas to concentrate on that lone area(s).

    My only critique is that it is strictly online. You cannot use it offline. When my cable goes down, I'm out of luck. This happens a lot in my rural area. For those times I grabbed my IPad and used Amateur Radio Exam Prep by Patrick J Maloney LLC. It is not adaptive like HamTestOnilne, but it is a nice app and I recommend it if you cannot get online.

    on 8/20/17, I returned home to Lake County Florida to test for my General upgrade, This is where I got my Tech some years ago. After passing the General exam, I took my shot at Extra and passed it also. Tech to Extra in one sitting. It was amazing and gratifying. An old dog can learn new tricks. Thank you HamTestOnline. Did I mention that subscriptions are good for TWO YEARS?

    Don't wait, get started today. You Too can be a happy HAM.

    Stay Safe, 73's

    GREAT!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
    I couldn't be more happier with this Ham Test Online. But even more important was the fact that I need some info from them and they were great. If you want to pass the test and learn, then go with hamtestonline! KG5GXF Raye
