How to pass Gen Nav exam

Hello everyone,

I have been studying for Gen Nav with Bristol date base.

I am struggling to study this subject. It is not hard to understand, but it is very

time consuming. Shall I memorize it or try to understand everything?

Take you for your advice. I really appreciate it!!

There is a guy who runs Cat3c search the name and contact him , he has some good info on how to pass the exam , it's unlikely now you will pass this exam with question bank alone.

He will do Video teaching via the net, saves you leaving your house

Also contact Richard Heaton on this forum if you need help.

Don't worry so much about remembering formulae, but get smoking on the flight computer! There are many questions you can answer without making any calculations at all. Remember that the Nav exam is not a nav exam as such, but a maths exam using navigation as a backdrop. Referesh the principles of isosceles triangles, memorise the cosine for 60 degrees and the sine for 30 degrees (both 0.5 - why do you think 60N or S is used for many questions? Because the departure is half).

Good luck

phil

You need to know your stuff particularly you need to be very slick on the CRP-5 and the other weak area is understanding variation & deviation and being able to apply CDMVT in both directions. Gyro wander is part of instruments and OP and not GN.

There will be some theory questions like great circle definitions along with some obtuse questions you can memorise but other than that knowledge and lots of practice is the key.

I would agree that passing GN by QB alone will not work, however they are really useful for seeing how the questions are asked which is not necessarily how it's presented in course material. After I have taught a GN topic I recommend the students to use QBs for practice and understanding the questions which is half the battle.

Good tips Phil and the recommendation!
