Am sitting this exam soon and was wondering if anyone who has recently sat it has any info as to whether it is weighted in any particular area?

Yeah its a pretty heavy exam :rolleyes:
In all seriousness, know the material, pass the exam. It's one of the ones where you read the question, and either know the answer, or not.
You only get out what you put in.
A few of us all did the exam together, and we all had very different questions, some got a number on A/C, others on engines and some on A/P. So as the NZScion said, know your stuff.

If you look at the ATPL exam handbook, (http://www.casa.gov.au/wcmswr/_assets/main/fcl/download/v2_2aeroplane.pdf) this is the one with the most reference texts (page 26)...:eek:

When I sat this exam many moons ago, I flunked all the automated pilot questions in the last section of the paper but luckily managed to scrape a pass with the rest intact. I think it is probably a bit much to ask a bare CPL without such experience to really understand what is going on.
With hindsight, I should have been reading a Boeing FCOM or Stephen Casner's "The Modern Airline Cockpit". Even then, without current jet proficiency, many concepts would've been hard to grasp for a novice.
