FAQ > GroundSchool FAA Knowledge Test Prep
Actual and realistic FAA test questions?

Yes! Our GroundSchool FAA written test prep apps contain actual and realistic questions just like you will see when you go to take your FAA knowledge exams.

In a word, YES. Our GroundSchool apps provide actual, current, and realistic FAA questions - the best in the business. These are continuously reviewed and updated by our editorial staff of professional pilots, mechanics, regulatory experts, instructors, and designated examiners for currency, usefulness, and consistency with official FAA Airman Certification Standards. Our prep materials are 100% FAA ACS compatible.

Important: once you have our GroundSchool App (on any platform) - make sure you use the "content updates check" or "check for updates" feature from the main menu as soon as you get it and regularly thereafter to make sure that you have the latest and greatest content from our editorial team.

If you study conscientiously using our GroundSchool FAA written test prep software or app for the platform(s) of your choice, you will in all likelihood find the questions and answers extremely familiar when you go to take your actual test. In fact, if you're like most people who have done a good job studying using GroundSchool, you will not only pass your test, but you will ACE it.

That said, you should be aware that these days, the FAA is taking significant steps to ensure that the knowledge tests really, well, test your knowledge. To do this, FAA is working hard to come up with techniques that reward those who understand the material well while discouraging those who just try to memorize. This makes a lot of operational and safety sense. As such, occasionally there may be a few questions that have not yet reached us due to the way that the FAA informs test prep sources of updates and there may be a few questions from time to time that are worded differently as an FAA anti-memorization strategy. Such changes are usually quite minor non-issues to well-prepared test takers. Additionally, occasionally the FAA throws in ungraded and/or experimental questions. We are not informed of such questions, but they are generally not graded, either.

These nuances and any other chance unpublished questions notwithstanding, Your score depends overwhelmingly on your studying the questions as we have them presented and learning the "whys", "what's", and "hows" that our detailed, often illustrated explanations.

It is vitally important that as soon as you get our test prep app, the very first thing you do is to start it up and click on "check for updates" (or similar) from the main menu. This will update the learning content to the latest and greatest. It's really critical that you do this, especially for mobile app versions. Our editorial team is hard at work updating the content regularly through 2024, 2025 and beyond, so check for updates regularly as you study.
