Join the amateur radio community! Become a HAM by obtaining your Technician class license!

Amateur Radio License exams are composed of questions from a pool. Use this application prior to taking your exam to review and practice all possible questions. Then, test your knowledge with practice exams!

After completing your first practice exam, the question pool screen will display your proficiency in each question group for all practice exams you have completed. This will identify areas in which you need further practice.

You may choose to receive immediate feedback on right and wrong answers when taking a practice test. On practice tests, questions in a group will not be repeated until all of them have been used.

Some questions require you to review associated Figures. These figures may be zoomed and panned on iPhone/iPod touch.

FCC rule text is viewable within the application. All sections can be browsed from the main screen. Additionally, for questions where rule sections have been identified, the rule text can be viewed on the question screen when studying the question pool or reviewing test results.

An in-progress practice test can be resumed if you exit the test or the application.

Current Technician question pool is valid through June 30, 2026.

Versions of this application for both the General and Extra license classes are also available.

• Accessibility option for vision-impaired users to exclude questions with figures
• Dark mode support

• Swipe gestures to navigate between questions
• Tap on answer to select it

Great Test Review

This app is very well designed. It is worth every penny! The structure is well thought out. The % proficiency that shows in each section after you take practice exams is amazing and an incredible feature! I will use this for my future license upgrades for sure. . . Though I’d like to see a discount on the upgrades after purchasing previous elements. Other than that I think it’s an amazing app. The last 16 practice tests are over 90% and I feel confident I’ll pass the test when I take it in a few days!

A word of advice: start by going through ALL of the question pool questions. Then move onto practicing ALL of the question pool questions, THEN take the practice tests. Don’t jump ahead to practice tests after reading a book through section 4 and going through a few question pool practices. Take the time to see every question in the pool, then run through practicing every question in the pool and THEN take the practice test. The app is ordered that way for a reason. Use it that way and you’ll get better results quicker than if you try to jump ahead. I was able to slightly jump ahead due to electronics knowledge from making my own circuit boards, but after that, I really had to make sure to see every question. This app is amazing for that. . . Use it that way and you’ll have great success!

Passed my Tech exam

Read an e-book first then used this app. I would go over 1 subelement in the morning and then a new one at lunch. In the evening I’d go over those two elements again (I would only do a new one if I felt confident of learning the previous areas). I would also review the previous areas also. In other words I’ve learned to use this app as an e-flash cards to go from short term memory to long term now. During testing day, few guys had questions on certain things. I was quick to explain the answer in simple terms to them. In the app, I only used the review question pool and the practice question pool. In the review it shows the question with the answer highlighted. In the practice its the question and you have to choose the answer. I tried the “New Test” but after the first question, the questions were of areas that I haven’t studied yet. So, after this. I never used it. But, now I can so I can keep my memory fresh because I’m starting to study for my General. Good luck!!!

Awesome test prep app

I was easily able to prepare for taking my Technician Class License exam. I like the pass/fail tracking it does so you can easily see areas you are weak on. I read the Gordon West book first. After that I did multiple tests in the app. I went the entire bank of questions twice in practice mode to see how well I knew each area. I took tests until I was passing with above 90% in 10 minutes or less for 35 questions. I successfully passed my license exam so I highly recommend this app.

I just paid for general prep app and know that similar test prep will work for general exam too.
