Recently I was asked to review Jason Schappert’s new “Pass Your Private Pilot Checkride 2.0” book. Honestly, I was excited to do so because I follow Jason regularly at Mzeroa.com and I know how much time and hard work he puts into developing high-quality educational content for student pilots. “Pass Your Private Pilot Checkride” did not disappoint. Here’s the breakdown:
What I like most about Schappert’s content is his way of breaking down muddy concepts and mountains of technical terms into something that’s easy to understand and remember. And let’s not forget how important it is for us to understand and remember all of the information we have learned on that day of the checkride, when it matters most!
In “Pass Your Private Pilot Checkride 2.0,” Schappert creates several useful acronyms that helps break down the tough but essential to know concepts, processes and terms. Acronyms like “30FTDUC“, (30 foot duck) and ATOMATOFLAMES (A Tomato Flames). Clever and easy to remember, which is very important when it’s time to impress that all-powerful examiner.
Acronyms aside, Schappert also goes above and beyond to provide anecdotes, hypothetical scenarios, and tips to really cement reader comprehension and understanding.
In Chapters 1 and 11, Schappert provide citations for a quick reference of FAA Regs and the FAR/AIM. It’s also worth pointing out how easy it is locate answers to questions you may have by navigating a very detailed Table of Contents. I personally find that feature very useful.
In terms of quantity (and quality), Schappert packs this book full of actual checkride questions along with his own personal checkride blueprint and exclusive test day prep notes. If you enjoy listening to audio books, as I do, you will also have access to unabridged content, meaning all the extra goodies that didn’t make it to print.
- The paperback ($67.97 at Amazon)
- The E-book ($47.97)
- The E-book + Audio Package deal ($57.97)
Generally I prefer E-books because I can access them instantly. And as I mentioned before, with the Audio package, you’ll receive the unabridged content (Over 2 hours of separated Mp3s, great for IPod/Mp3 player at the gym).
If you are looking for something that will give you that necessary edge when it comes time to prove yourself to the examiner, “Pass Your Private Pilot Checkride 2.0” will more than do the trick. It’s full of Schappert utilizing his unique and memorable teaching style to help you cement the vital information you will need to know and communicate to the examiner. And financially speaking, the money you pay for this awesome content and education is insignificant to the triumph and pride you will feel when you finally pass that checkride.
