    DescriptionBob Gardner's textbooks have been in publication since 1985 and are continually updated and expanded to keep up with FAA regulations and procedures. Mr. Gardner writes in a conversational style that is readable and comprehensive, bringing the reader to a greater understanding of the material. All his books are reinforced by the caliber of personal experience that integrates "technique and procedures" with mastery. Many students prepare for the Commercial certificate and Instrument rating simultaneously, as a method to train efficiently, cut expenses, and expedite the process. This book combines these two phases in flight training to produce a seamless, effective method for efficient training. It is the best way to expedite the Instrument and Commercial certification process. Taking and passing an FAA Knowledge Exam is required for the instrument rating and the commercial certificate. Using these tests as the premise for learning, Gardner applies practical information so readers are not only prepared for their exams, but also for the cockpit. He augments the required aeronautical knowledge by giving specific tips and techniques, checklists and mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. Each chapter concludes with sample questions taken directly from the FAA tests, and a comprehensive glossary and index are included as well as useful aviation website links. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other text! With the author's approachable yet concise writing style, readers will be able to quickly grasp the subjects, pass the required tests and checkrides, and have an operational understanding of instrument flying and the commercial ticket that they can take to the cockpit. Review questions follow each chapter. Full-color appendix on weather services contains examples and more. Foreword by Dave Gwinn. Illustrated and contains glossary and index.
