New ARRL General Class License Manual Available as Softcover, Spiral Bound, or E-Book


The new ARRL General Class License Manual (8th edition) now is available in soft-cover, spiral-bound, or e-book versions.

With the optional academic-style spiral-bound edition (ARRL Item 1904, retail $32.95), the manual lies flat, making it more convenient for both students and instructors. It includes everything you need to prepare for the 35-question General class Amateur Radio license exam, so you won’t have any surprises on test day.

 The exam questions and answer key are built from the latest General class question pool, which goes into effect on July 1, 2015. You can use the General Class License Manual in conjunction with ARRL’s online Exam Review for Ham Radio. It includes detailed explanations for all test questions as well as FCC Amateur Service (Part 97) rules. 

The ARRL General Class License Manual is also available in traditional softcover format (ARRL Item No 8119, retail $29.95). Both spiral-bound and soft-cover editions are available from the ARRL Store or from your ARRL Publication Dealer, or call 860-594-0355 or toll-free in the US 888-277-5289 to order.


In addition to the hard-copy manuals, ARRL has just released a digital edition of The ARRL General Class License Manual in Kindle format from Amazon.  

As the leading publisher of Amateur Radio licensing and training materials, ARRL is expanding beyond traditional printed books to meet the increasing demand from readers who prefer digital publications. The ARRL also offers Kindle editions of The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual and its question-and-answer study guides, ARRL’s Tech Q&A, ARRL’s General Q&A, and ARRL’s Extra Q&A.
