FAQ > GroundSchool FAA Knowledge Test Prep
How many questions are in the audio version of the test prep?

Our GroundSchool series of FAA knowledge test preps are divided into individual app titles which each cover a number of related tests. For example, our GroundSchool FAA Private Pilot test apps contain study material for the Private Pilot Airplane, Private Pilot Helicopter, Private Pilot Glider, and other tests. Some questions in a given title are common to most or all of the tests in that title while some are unique to specific tests. When you start any of our titles, you are given the option to select exactly which test you want to study and then you are presented with only those questions which our editors have deemed correspond to that test - nothing more and nothing less.

Our FAA knowledge test prep apps also feature an (optional purchase) audio mode where questions and answers are read by a human narrator. The audio mode does not cover all of the questions for a given test - specifically, questions with a large calculative or visual element are not included. Additionally, the audio modes generally do not include explanations for the material and as such won't prepare you well to actually learning the material deeply so that you'll be prepared for new and variant FAA questions. With those caveats out of the way, the audio prep is an extremely effective complementary mode to help familiarize you with questions and answers which you can listen to, for example, in your car. We regularly get feedback from people who love the audio mode and tell us how much time it saved them and how much it helped them learn.

The list below contains the number of questions per title, per test, and in the audio mode for each. These totals are regularly changing as our editors update the material.

If the totals above don't match what you see in the app:

  • Most important: use the update feature from the main menu of the app to update the content to the latest available. Please check for updates regularly when using the app.
  • Make sure you have no 'filtering' conditions set. For example:
    • Make sure all chapters / study areas are selected
    • Make sure all 'question stacks' are selected
    • Make sure you don't have any search term typed in the search box
    • etc.
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 2020, 2021 and beyond, so check for updates regularly as you study.
