Correct Radio Amateur Answer Manual

The Correct Radio Amateur Answer Manual (CRAAM) was produced to help people to obtain their Amateur Radio License. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that all amateur radio operators (hams) must pass a written test to obtain a license. As with all federal tests, the actual question pool, and answers, including distractors, are published for review. This book presents all of the questions, and ONLY the right answers. Other books publish the distractor answers, and that makes it confusing to remember which is the right answer. A number of great amateur radio trainers suggest that you NOT look at the distractors, or that you should even highlight the right answers, while ignoring the wrong ones. With this manual, you don't have to do that, all you get is the right answers.

No Pesky Explanations

This manual was developed to use your short term memory to pass the Volunteer Examiner Led tests in your area. Do your reading within 48 hours of the test time to maximize this short term gain. Yes, you'll need to know a LOT more, once you obtain your license. That's the time to actually learn the tasks that you need. Local hams serve as mentors, or Elmers, in the ham vocabulary and you'll find darn near everything amateur radio related on either Google, or YouTube. Heck, take that amateur radio class AFTER you get your license. You'll learn a lot more usefull information if your not stressed about taking the test.

Why Would You Want Wrong Answers?

That's the question we hear the most. We're not sure why you'd want to see the wrong answers. The distractors are listed so the Volunteer Examiners can build standard tests. This manual was built to help our local hams obtain their Extra Class license, and they wanted all three levels for their friends to become licensed as well. Why study something that's not correct?
