Please help with Cadet Pilot Programme (SAA)

Good Day,
I have applied for the SAA Cadet Pilot Programme and would like to prepare myself to the best of my abilities.
If there is anyone who would be willing to help me out with any material to help me out and increase my chances of making it, I would really appreciate it. Even if its websites that i can do some reading on.
I stay in the Gauteng Province and would not mind travelling if anyone would like to 'donate' old reading material which i'll return upon the conclusion of the recruitment phase.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

PS: I am a young black man and even though it is the reality of what is happening, it would be nice to have replies where the race card is not played. All im asking for is help and direction from those willing to help.
Best Regards

Is this an invitation to play the game sometimes called Twenty One with a Troll who holds a stacked deck?

Might want to check out the FAA study material online. The aero stuff is relevant, as is the airframe and powerplant material.

The initial rounds are more oriented towards psychometric and aptitude testing. Do some practice of basic maths problems (long division etc) and IQ testing type stuff like progressive matrices

Later rounds will include interviews and there it will be advantageous to have read as much as possible in the PPL line (as SRT suggested the FAA website has good basic flying info) just to show that you have a genuine interest. Too many applied in the past simply because it sounded like a good idea and not because they really want to fly aeroplanes.

Good luck.
