For the last 30 years and more, it has been the same. It is supposed to be a Law exam and NOT an English comprehension test. Trying to interpret some of the questions used to cause me to pull my hair out (maybe the reason I now have a solar panel instead of the usual fur like substance)

I am not sure if this has been answered yet, but I used the Bob Tait book and self studied Air Law (I was in a course for the majority of the others). The book was fantastic, even a few of the CASA questions on Crew / Duty times I had in the exam were right out of Bob's book. Nice and handy!!

I got through it the week before the tag law changed....and I tagged the hell out of my docs but to be honest, I hardly had to use the tags. I relied on them too much the first time I attempted it and this stuffed my time management up...second time round I worked a lot harder on my text and practice exam questions so that when I did the exam, I answered everything I could off the top of my head. Then I used the time efficiently after that to reference my answers I wasn't 100% sure on and still there was time to cross check the ones I were certain were right. It worked a treat

Wait a minute. Are you suggesting hard work might pay off. Damn, back to the books I guess. Well done,

Just sat the exam on Tuesday and found it a lot easier than I'd imagined it to be. It was 40 one-mark questions, a lot of which were straight from the Bob Tait Study Text.

As a final review before sitting the exam, I went through Bob's 7 practice exams (contained in the text book) and made sure that I knew where to find the relevant reference straight off the top of my head, eg: Duty time question? CAO 48. Passenger briefings? CAO 20.16. Rights of way? CAR 161.

I highlighted all the references from Bob's text in the contents pages of the AIP, CAO and CAR. Tags are over-rated, I scored more than 95%

** interesting side-note - guys have been taking separately printed contents pages for the CAO and CAR into the exam (which I believe is permissible). They refer to the contents without having to find them hidden deep in the Law books themselves **

Just to update this thread....
30 questions
and from memory
2 questions on 2004 flight and duty times
2 questions on 2013 flight and duty times
Noise abatement proceducre...careful as the question is based on UTC and noise abatement is in LMT
3 maintenance questions
2 instrument recency
2 questions fm CAR
5 questions from 20:18
refuelling and radar
min pilot qualifications to fly after endo
few instrument rating type questions

Also if you happen to use Jepps (and therefore no access to ERSA) have a quick brush up on abbreviated codes such as Hj HN as there was a question based on a restricted area with a few codes that are not available in the jepps such as W WE which can be worked out however if every question counts you want to make sure you can at least answer the question even if you dont have the info available
