Fantastic study guide

Any additional comments?

Using this audio book, and maybe 1 hour of reviewing the Schematic Diagrams and some math practice questions, I was obtaining 33 out of 35 scores on practice exams. (well above passing at 26)

I actually didn't think I was learning all that much while going through the audiobook, but when it came time to take the exams, the answers literally popped out at me, because Michael Burnette did an excellent job at mentioning the keywords you need to remember.

And I feel for a 7-hour audiobook, Michael really dove into topics as deep as he could without requiring the time and patience of a college diploma.

If you listen for an hour per day, you can pass the Technician Exam in a week.
