FAA Instrument/Commercial Test Prep

Hello my friends,

I will be starting the FAA IR/CPL in the coming months, what are the recommended books/test prep material? A few searches show Gleim and ASA seem to be the preference, with many praising Gleim for the written and ASA for the oral. What about the Jeppesen books? Also,are the dauntless aviation practice questions useful?


Many Thanks

I like the Gleim test prep and the ASA oral prep. The Jepp books are overpriced IMO. You can get an Instrument Flying Handbook combo with another book( can't remember the name) for less than half the price of the Jepp. Another thing to keep in mind is the book your instructor wants you to use.

The Jepp books are expensive, but I like them, I feel they explain things the best, not just get you ready for the test. Gliem is good for test prep. The King coarses are great too, even as much as Martha gets on my nerves they do a very good jop teaching. In the scheme of things, the books will be the cheapest thing you pay for!
