3. Show up early (and with your logbook)
PPL textbooks also have their own sets of practice exams. I practiced with Bob Tait's PPL and CPL books and it's very good training. My suspicion is that CASA contracted Bob to write some of the PPL exam questions :-)
9. Stay hydrated and well-fed
As a matter of fact, students on average complete the exam in 165 minutes, which is about the amount of time it took me. Then you click the final button and wait for what seems like a long long time for the result to come back. Shane described it a lot better than I could.
Kindly enough CASA on their website list the areas where students fail most often:
- Effect of lowering flaps on performance of glide or descent.
- Factors affecting the angle of climb.
- Calculation of beginning and end of daylight
That's it, I hope it helps. If you have questions just leave a comment below. Remember, by law I cannot reveal which questions I had at the exam, so don't ask. Anyway, if you've found this blog post and read that far you're probably very motivated and I'm sure you'll pass first time. Good luck!
