Congratulations for passing your tech. I think it is more important you are studying for your general.

Congratulations Chris, welcome to the mad house of amateur radio. Mad house because you're gonna scratch your head about some of the modes, technik, other operators, what next to buy; well you get the idea. But it is a FUN mad house. You'll enjoy it.

Yeah tell me about it lol I just got a Baofeng hand held radio and am still scratching my head between the different modes and input data. Youtube is definitely my friend with this haha. So much to learn in this hobby but its just a learning curve.

Exactly, if you know 'why something works' you will not only know the answer, but have that knowledge as you learn more after you get your license.

And before you take the test, read FCC Part 97. You don't have to memorize it, but if you read it, and see that it's mostly common sense, you retain an excellent idea of what's allowed and what's not.
