Did the 3rd BAK sample exam as mentioned yesterday, and nailed the “Piper Quebec” questions around takeoff, landing and load calculations.
Didn’t actually improve overall sample exam performance – scored a 77%, which means I really need to get my head more around some other stuff that I’m still not nailing, but by the sample exam’s standards, I’ve passed exams 2 and 3 after failing exam 1. I choose to take this as an extremely positive indicator that I’m across the BAK stuff sufficiently to start to do the PPL subjects.
But I definitely need to do more BAK revision and consolidation. Like to get my level of performance consistently above the 80-85% level.
In tangential news, looks like CASA has completed my ASIC/AVID and Student License applications – woo-hoo! Look forward to getting those in the mail well in advance of day 1 on 28 Feb 2011.
