FYI also, this book is available through the FAA website. You can print directly for your own use.

This book is awesome. Great introduction to the world of aviation. If you are thinking about becoming a pilot someday read this book! I recommend reading this before taking a ground school.

Between this book, the Sporty's iPhone Study Buddy Test Prep (FAA Private Pilot), and the Gliem online audio book and study, I was able to pass my FAA written exam on the first try with a 92%.
