Congratulations on the upgrade. It's a whole new world with the increased HF privileges that come with it.

Congrats Dave! I can't wait to get my General so I can participate more in the HF bands. The little sliver they give us in 10M is nice, but I really want to be able to work the other bands.

I too just took my test... yesterday morning. I took both element's 3 & 4. I missed one question on element 3 and two questions on element 4. I was very proud of these scores, as I was doubting I was quite ready for taking the tests, although I knew I was nearing being ready; test was at a time and place fairly convenient. As I finished the tests and they were graded, one of the examiner tells me I only have one more test; becoming a VE.

I used HamExam.org: Free Amateur Radio Practice Tests with Flash Cards you can create a FREE account. When you do that you use the flash cards and set them to do 1 section at a time.
