I understand that it is the same. That is you only do IR once whether PPL or CPL.

We all have to write this exam. If we like it or not. Unfortunately the IR exam is here to stay by the looks of it it. I think the best way to go about this is to create a IR exam group. Maybe use something like whatsapp. Then everyone that's busy with the exam can post there comment there. Eg what to study what type of questions they got, help with tricky questions. We can even arrange a study group whereby we all get together and discuss the subject. We don't have to go about this exam as individuals. Let's create a group whereby we can assist each other.
What do you guys think?

There must be some form of central book/s were the questions are being taken from, does any one know what would be the best books to use for this paper?

Problem is....its taken directly from all the comm subjects...and with (only) 105 or so questions in the paper..and covering about 7 subjects..the database is VAST and they can ask almost anything. Its essentially about 7 subjects rolled into one. Questionbank was almost no help to me (besides teaching through questions) cos not one question came up..in 2 sittings..and there are over 6000 questions spread across the range.

I found this on the SACAA website

http://www.caa.co.za/Pages/Search-resul ... 20Syllabus

if you look at the topics for the Operational procedures exam It doesnt imply that all questions will be asked.

will have to book one sitting and see. :D

How about starting a separate forum on Avcom and
post the questions and answers you can remember. Within a few weeks and then months you will have a database to reference.

Just a suggestion?

Hi you are exempt of that rule for your 8 subjects but not for the two new exams. I have my 8 subjects but busy with the two new ones and have to wait 2 moths before attempting to write again. As I have failed the IR exam more than 3 times.
Kind regards
Patrick
