After you have studied, take the Sectional Charts Quiz:


I only got 4 out of 10 right.  :(

4 out of 10 is not bad. Now go back and study the ones you missed and you'll be an "ace". Thanks for taking the test.

Been a long time since I had to recall the small details on the VNC, which is what that test forces, so I scored low :/ . Great test though... thanks for that Rocky.

So yeah, I took a few minutes out to run that test but am also posting here because I need a live test now as I am puzzling through this site and on live chat with 2 other techies. Pages of printouts, highlighter marks that look like police lines and too much coffee. Just like the good ol' days :lol: .

Anyhow, jetjerry, I too will be taking a refresher. After all, one has to know if the danged tower closes at 4 or 6 pm., right? :D

Took the test "cold turkey" the other day and got 5 out of 10. Wish I could brag that it was due to some specific knowledge on my part, but it was just a series of SWAG's (scientific wild @$$ guesses) on my part. :D I really need to dive into naviagtional charts in a serious way at some point.
