Sharper Edge ATPL

Post by No Smoke, No Fire » Thu Jan 17, 2019 9:49 am

Hi,

Looking for some feedback on the Sharper Edge ATPL (2019) prep guide. Helped you pass, or a waste of money?


Thanks

Don't do it. Absolute waste of money. So many gaps. Aerocourse / AIM, passed both first try.

I was given a Sharper Edge book and I've just stared going though it and noticing a ton of holes. It's not a one-stop-shop book by any stretch. I keep having to look up items it's missing, even though the quizzes ask about them. I'm probably gonna get the Aerocourse books.

As far as the content that is in it, it's not a bad book. However it's far from sufficient on its own. I would suggest supplementing that book with other books to ensure you don't miss anything because as others said, there's definitely gaps in what it covers vs what is on the exams.

Update: I just wrote and passed the SARON with 83%... I used the Sharper Edge book, but found a lot of stuff missing. Still though, it had a good way of simplifying and explaining the content that it did have. I also used the practice exam bank from nizus.com. It helped a great deal in filling the gaps, although that exam still has some surprises.
