“I took the Extra exam today (4/8/06) and passed it with a 92%. During the exam, the answers just leaped off the page at me. It was terrific. You have a dedicated fan, and I will sing your praises to all who ask me about what works and what doesn't. Thanks so much for a fine program. It was easy to use, and the automatic repetition in the trouble areas eventually made it sink in. Repetition is the key. It definitely works. In addition to learning the answers to the question pool, I also learned a lot about my hobby and the technical aspects of the hobby.” — Sidney, KCØOSB/AE
“I passed the Tech exam on Jan.14,2007. I missed one question on the exam. I wish I had found this web site before I got Ham University's program. I found HamTestOnline very user friendly.”
***UPDATE***: “I just passed my Extra class as of Jan 20 2008 with a score of 96%. I usually freeze-up when I take tests, but HamTestOnline really helped.” — KD8EZG, Russ
“Passed Element 3 in January and Element 4 today 2/24. Couldn't have done it without HamTestOnline. HamTestOnline is the best thing that could happen to ‘Hams that yearn to learn’.” — Les, KC9HLS
“Like to thank you for such a great web site for Ham testing. I passed both my Tech. and Gen.today, and I know that it was the time I spent studying and testing my self on your site. Time to start studying for Extra.” — Capt Jerry, KJ4DPW
“TNX for quick reply! You have a great product that provides a great service to the amateur radio community!” — 73, Jeff, KE5APC
“I passed the Extra Class test on February 9th at Orlando. Not bad for a 71 year old guy. I really appreciated going through my test preparation using your site. The repetition is a great way to reinforce learning. This is a great way to study.” — 73's, Bob, WA1KVW
“With the help of your course, I have obtained my Canadian Advanced Certificate. I would recommend this course to anyone who is going for a ham ticket.” — 73 de Harvey, VA3HBD
“I want to thank HamTestOnline for your support and help towards my ham license. I took the General test on 24 Feb and passed it.” — Bob, KI4SIS/AG
“I passed the Extra test on Saturday, July 9, 2005. The VEs did not tell me my score, but I know I got 100% -due to your program.” — Jack, KD5UVF
“I passed my Extra test last Saturday. I did use HamTestOnline to study and found it to be very helpful.” — Larry, WA2SRY
“Previously passed my General exam and today (8-17-08) I passed my Extra exam. Thanks for the help HamTestOnline.” — Chris, KC0IPD
“I have passed my Extra class. I used a lot of excellent materials and tools, and HamTestOnline was one of them. Not only did it help me gauge how my studying was progressing, it helped teach me in a number of areas where I needed to learn more. Thanks for offering this service.” — Jim, (Awaiting vanity callsign!)
“Well, I passed my General exam and will do my code exam next month. I’d have taken it today, but my hearing aid died! Starting my Extra studies today and plan to take the test before year’s end. Great way to study and really learn the material, not just the answers for the test questions. I’ll let you know when my general upgrade is complete. Keep up the good work!” — 73’s, KD8CIL, Joe
“I passed my element 3 exam on the first try!
I can't even begin to say how helpful HamTestOnline was in studying for the test. I took the route of basically memorizing the questions, I did not buy any books to explain the theory, but I did study using a book for my Technician license back in 1992, so I was familiar with the basic electrical components and antenna designs mentioned in the the questions. HamTestOnline lets you select which test pool (Technician, General, Extra) you want to study and further it allows you to select subsections as well. I was having a heck of a time memorizing the privileges on each band and the band plans, so I just turned off those parts. I basically didn’t study them at all. On my test there was only question from this section and I just skipped it.
The element 3 (General written) test is multiple choice, 35 questions and you need to get 26 right in order to pass. I don’t know how many I missed, but there were 6 questions I wasn’t 99.99% sure about including the one I skipped, so I had a buffer of 3 more I could miss. If you decided to use HamTestOnline as a comparison, I got to a 76% rate on the New General questions and an overall ranking of 87. My total hours was 12:19. I’m not sure sure how they calculate that to be honest.
Finally, you can definitely do this there’s no reason to pay for SSB when you can easily get your HAM license! While it may be sacrilegious to say this, you don’t need to be an electronics guru or a ham radio wonk to use the Nets and mail programs like WinLink. What you do need to do is jump through the hoops (license) and then get someone to help you get setup (aka the place you’re going to buy your radio from!)”

“Great site! Purchased a subscription in March to prepare for my Technician. Being a former US Navy Radar technician, theory wasn't a problem — just the peculiars of amateur radio. I was very pleased with the manner of delivery and questions. When I tested in April, I didn't have a single problem. When I tested for General this month (September), passed as well. Now using the website to study for my Extra class. Good job!” — Rene, KB3JLZ
