Must Have for Technician Exam!

I sent Mr Burnette this email :
"Thank you! Thank you a thousand times over. I bought your book in order to study for my tech license(Kindle version) and the audiobook and I loved them! I originally bought Mr West's CD's and they confused me. I bought yours and it made learning simple and enjoyable. I did this to surprise my husband of 30 years who has had a license sincethe early parts of our marriage. He has asked me off and on to consider getting a license and I kept saying no. Well with the help of your book and audiobook, I was able to blow his doors off and pass my technician exam first try. Now if you only had volumes for general and expert, the world would be perfect. Seriously hanks again I enjoyed both versions of the book and they were instrumental in my success. Sincerely, Edie, Lancaster County, PA (Call sign pending) "

If you are studying for your technician license this will be a great asset and promote your success!

Excellent way to learn HAM Radio!

On my journey to getting my 1st HAM license I chose this book. I’m glad I did. AF7KB does an excellent job of reviewing all of the material in detail with explanations on each topic and makes learning HAM radio a fun & pleasant experience.

He is very well spoken in his narration and with a busy on the go schedule, being able to listen to this book over & over with a good narrator helped me learn the material a lot faster. This book was a great listen! I highly recommend for any newbies to HAM radio like myself.

Thank you AF7KB for making HAM interesting & fun to learn & thank you for a great audio book!
