Extra Class Pool goes into effect 1 July 2016

Studying for your Extra Class ticket?  It’s time to switch gears and start using the latest question pool, which is the Public Release March 5, 2016.  This pool goes into effect for all VE testing on the first day of July 2016.

You can always find the latest version of any question pool on the NCVEC website at http://www.ncvec.org/.

If you are blind and wish to use the recorded version with only the correct answers as a study guide, you will be able to find the latest version read by Handiham volunteer Jim Perry, KJ3P, on the Handiham website in the members section by July 1.  It will also be available in DAISY format for download as a zip file and for placement on NLS digital cartridges.

A great big THANK YOU to Jim for his excellent recording!
