ARRL’s Free Exam Review for Ham Radio Updated


ARRL Exam Review for Ham Radio™ has been updated in advance of the release of the ninth edition of The ARRL General Class License Manual for Ham Radio. ARRL Exam Review is a free online resource for use with current editions of ARRL License Manuals. The service can be accessed via a web browser, and uses the official examination question pools to construct chapter-by-chapter reviews. Upon completing study, Exam Review helps the license candidate take practice exams with the same number and variety of questions that he or she will encounter on exam day. Practice tests can be taken over and over, scored in complete privacy, or even printed with an answer key. Exam Review includes quick feedback about the questions missed.

The update to Exam Review and the new edition General Class License Manual coincides with a new General Class question pool released earlier this year by the National Conference of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (NCVEC). The new 2019 – 2023 General Class question pool becomes effective July 1, 2019 for examinations in the Amateur Radio Service. The 2015 – 2019 General Class pool remains in effect for exams given until June 30, 2019. ARRL Exam Review provides access to both the current and new General Class questions.

A federally licensed service, Amateur Radio (or “ham radio”) provides the broadest and most powerful wireless communication capability available to private citizens anywhere in the world. ARRL, the national membership association for Amateur Radio licensees in the US, offers books, online content, and other resources for Amateur Radio licensing, operating, and lifelong learning.
