The questions below are only a 'taster' set. This website is almost certainly the best of the 'free' FAA test prep sites and its questions and content can serve as a useful introduction to FAA tests. However, just like all such free sites, its content is neither complete nor up to date. If you study using only this site or sites like it, you will not be adequately prepared for your FAA written test nor will you really learn the material deeply to become a safe and efficient pilot or mechanic. More directly, if you rely only on this site or other 'free' resources, there is a good chance that you will fail your test. Don't cheat yourself by skimping on test prep by relying on 'free' sites, books with out of date content, weekend 'cram courses', or other counterproductive 'shortcuts'.

For far, far less than the cost of a single hour's flying you can get a Dauntless FAA Test Prep for PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, or Android that features actual, current questions and detailed, often illustated explanations maintained by a professional editorial team of instructors and examiners. Plus, it features lifetime free updates to that it will be ready for you when you're serious about passing that test. When this site and free sites like it were created, the FAA used to make all of the test questions publicly available. This is no longer the case and hasn't been for many years--it now requires a professional editorial team like that of the Dauntless / FAATest.com team to make a credible and complete test prep that keeps up with the FAA's very regular changes.
