This is what i used to study for the subjects and pretty much word for word in the CAA exam:

Human Performance - Exam11
Meteorology - Question Bank
ATG - Exam11
Navigation - Exam11
Radio Aids - Exam11
Instruments - Exam11
Air Law - Question Bank
Flight Planning - JAA, Question Bank

Hope this helps, it sure helped me, passed everything first time.

ATPL dont have Human Performance and Air law. Thats CPL. ATPL focus on Exam11 and QuestionBank for MET. Also read medcalf book. Flight planning go through BGS questions and Questionbank! Good luck

Good day.

I have recently passed all the ATPL exams.

I used:

Oxford CBT
Jepp Books
Avex books
Exams 11
Question Bank.

The reason I used both Jepp and Avex books was I found Jepp explanations not easy to understand and felt Avex explained better, however Avex does not cover all the gen needed and this is when the Jepp books came in handy. Another thing that helped was google If i was ever really stuck and battling to understand something I would google it and would either find a youtube video or some other site which would help.

Both Jepp and Avex books really only touch the surface and you may need to go do your own research on the net.

If you wrote the new CPL exams you should not battle to much as you have done some reading to pass those and that's more or less what these new exams require a bit of understanding of the subject and not just questions.

Good luck.

Hi all

I need some advice...

I am struggling to pass the ATP Met exam... I have studied the JAA ATP book and used questionbank and BGS extensively and I still failed...

Is there any other material or website you can suggest that will help?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Guys

Looking for advice as to what to use to prepare for ATPL Flight Planning. I have been using pilot exam to practice (have done every single question), but some sections actually have very few questions (14 -17) and I feel not everything covered so perhaps not adequate? I have written once, ok with all the theory, but need to work on the practical stuff. Have no 'advisors' nearby so any recommendations would be appreciated :)

Make yourself familiar with the CAP manuals. Some of the answers are available in these manuals if you know about them. Some definitions as well as conversions. That will score you a few points.

I used pilotexmas as well as questionbank for prep and they are pretty similar. Still had a few questions in the exams that I hadn't seen on the websites. Most important thing is to fully understand the graphs and how to interpolate between the dashed reference and solid reference lines on the Alternate planning graphs (when you're lining up on the right with aircraft weight). These questions are worth around 3%-5% so two or three of those wrong and you're going to fail.

Practice the integrated range and alternate planning. I think if you're happy with the theory available on pilotexams or questionbank, and have practiced the graphs then you should be fine.
