Correct PPL Theory Material & AirQuiz

I'm a few weeks into my PPL theory working mostly from the Pooley books with some additional reading material and youtube. I recently started using Airquiz for exam practice and noticed a good number of questions on material not covered in the books or mentioned elsewhere. In the Pooley books there are also a number of exam questions not covered in the preceding chapter or specific book.

For example, the human performance exams on AirQuiz have a number of questions on BMI (Body Mass Index). I'm very familiar with BMI due to my education, but it caught me by surprise to see it come up as I've not come across it anywhere so far in the PPL theory.

Is this just an AirQuiz specific thing? Are there other/better theory resources I should be looking at?

I've considered the PPL tutor app as well, but want to make sure I'm getting the right theory content just as much as the a realistic exam prep.

I think that's more professional - I don't remember seeing those in there

What do you mean by more professional?

I read the AFE series of textbooks (the newer AirLaw, Comms & Operations books are updated) and I read some some questions on PPLCruiser and had no recollection of some things at all. Iíve since bought some PadPilot books on a couple of subjects to reaffirm what I know.

I was using using two different apps for questions and the practice books and PPLCruiser. the Pooleys exam books seem the most accurate along with PPLCruiser.

Thanks for the response. I was looking at PPLCruiser yesterday as wondering if the annual fee would be a good investment or not.

No. Their question bank is very limited and explanations are lacking.

Good to know. It would be good to see more tests provide explanations/resources to refer to for wrong answers, especially for craftily worded and very specific answers.
