New E-exams for PPLH

I am not enjoying this Covid lockdown one bit as I started my PPLH towards the end of last year and am/was loving it.
I need to get flying again but in the meantime thought I would study and have a go at the exams. I attempted a few before lockdown with miserable results.
The study material I have been using did not really help. Has anyone got any good feedback or can recommend the right books for these new e-exams? All I hear is the paper ones were much better which doesn't help me now.

Thanks in advance.

best person to ask is Phil Croucher who lurks on this site. His book PPLH studies was by far and away the best book

buy a PPL(H) flightbag at pooleys and you have everything you need.
try to add a PPL(H) book from Sparrow and you're set. No need for anything else..

Thereís a fella who works down at Bournemouth alongside Derek Davidson who does residential courses for the helicopter syllabus that a few student colleagues have used recently. They didnít have too many good things to say about the e-exams but the training was very good.

Ovc000,

I would have agreed with you if we were talking about the paper exams but of the few e-exams I have attempted I would say otherwise. The Principles of Flight goes deeper than I was led to believe. There were questions in there about Notar, Fenestron and turbine engine stuff. I was told it was based on the Robinson piston helicopter.

Turbines is very much in the syllabus - who told you it was just the robbie? The POF will be very close to the professional syllabus - there's no point in teaching you half of dynamic rollover just because you are a PPL student.

I'm also a newbie in this area and I'm finding that PPL Tutor app and desktop quite helpful.
