SAMRA/SARON/INRAT

Just finished the Aero Course and...well my brain melted. May not get a chance to write the exams quickly as they seem to be taking an age to get back to me about spaces at the exam centres. Any good advice (other than smashing the WorkBook) on how to prepare for the exams? Advice greatly appreciated.

When did you email transport Canada regarding the exam dates?
Are you convert any license to transport Canada equivalent?

I have email them and waiting for their response to convert my FAA ATP to TCCA.

Suggest as follows to study / read / review - I wrote them last year, passed all 3 the first round:

1. Aerocourse Ground school - ATP workbook, ATPL questions and answers workbook and Instrument Questions and Answers Workbook
2. Read latest AIM
3. Download Dauntless INRAT Theory App from App store - once off payment - well worth it.
4. Browse through CARS online.
5. Purchase the pdf CAP and CFS from NAVCANADA website
6. Purchase a www.nizus.com membership for 3 months for all 3 - it has loads of practise exams which are similar to what you will get in the exams - these were great leading up to the exams to keep practising and they give you great explanations of your errors

This pulled me through with all marks in high 80's

PM for more info if you want.

Hi guys.

First of all, thank you, guys, for all tips.
I received my health certificate yesterday after waiting seven months for it. I've been studying to convert my Brazilian flight license to TC. Regarding the three exams I need to do, which one would you advise me to do first: SAMRA, SARON, or INRAT?

Suggest either INRAT or SAMRA. Then whatever you chose, do the other one after. Reason being, both exams has a large section of Meteorology - so once you study for one, most is covered for the other. Optimizes your study time.

I did SARON, SAMRA, INRAT, in that order.

Thank you. I'll do that and leave Saron as the last one.
Did you wait a long time between each test?

This is to the point.

Wrote all 3 in 3 days. Had to repeat SARON. If you are not used to CAR, please go through the important sections. I can’t emphasis more about this. I am not from Canada so had a hard time with the CAR.
Else, if you put in efforts it quite doable.

Wrote the exams in July, received the license in Oct
