Good deal on your grandson wanting to get into the hobby! I was his age when I got licensed back in the 1990s.

This is the book I used: Technician Class 2010-2014: Gordon West, WB6NOA, Pete Trotter, KB9SMG: 9780945053620: Amazon.com: Books It gives the questions and answers, plus a good description of why the answer is correct. At age 14 I was able to pass my Tech license, so I imagine if your grandson has the interest in the hobby the book should be written at a level he can understand.

Good luck to him!

I wouldf suggest the Gordon West Tech study guide. Plain languaghe, common sense approach that is easily understood. So you help him with the math - its a good intro to simple algebra. It will be fun for bothy of you.

I have read through both the Gordon West, and ARRL. And have taught from the ARRL (May try Gordo's for the next class) Just make sure the book you get is for the new question pool effective July 1.

Look at the dates. That one is out dated for any test after June 30, 2014. Our question pool has changed starting July 1, 2014. This one will work.
