I'm fresh off my PPL checkride and want to start working on my instrument rating. Anyone have the King Instrument course they no longer need and looking to unload?
This is good to know. I'm really not looking forward to the studying. I just don't have the patience for it and lose interest easily. I had the Sportys PPL course and couldn't stand it. I would up purchasing a month of online ground school from MzeroA.com and it helped me a lot. I haven't looked at their instrument course. Even though the PPL course was good, it is expensive. I'd rather buy a course that I can watch at my leisure, rather than have to hurry though an online course that charges on a monthly basis.I have it and have gotten through a little more than half the videos. They're good and I'm learning, I guess. That being said I kind of got tired of watching them. They're somewhat corny and I just wasn't sure if it was an efficient way to learn.
So I needed a change of pace. Paid for the shepherd air IFR course and have been thoroughly impressed so far.
I did lots of research and what I kept reading over and over (from IFR pilots) was to study to pass the test and go pass the test... Then go finish the flying portion and learn what you really need to know hands on.
Idk if I'm taking the right approach but that's how I'm going at it. Btw I ended up buying the ASA test prep package for pretty cheap too. There's a 3 book package that includes the test prep book, practical standards, and the computer test supplement book. I bought it mainly for the supplement. In the shepherd air software it's nothing but test questions. Every single diagram or illustration is in this book. Those same illustrations are part of the software but you have to click on a link and toggle between the illustration and the question. Having the physical book in front of you makes studying much more efficient and you're also getting practice with the identical book you'll use to take the test.
Those are just some thoughts from another guy in the middle of it.
