Best books, to prepare me for the FAA written and oral exams
for a sailplane licence ?

I have a logbook from 1998 , with about 20 hours in the
L-13, SGS 1-26 , and 2-33 gliders ; i'd like to finish off
my glider licence, and thought getting the written out
of the way first, might be the way to go ? I have thermal
theory down sorta OK ; bin flying Rigid-wing HG's, since
1980.

Thanks : Bille

Written is about memorizing and regurgitating. Some like Gleim I like ASA. Mark the ones applicable and learn them. It’s the way the system is designed. Skip all other questions.

Oral is different. FAA knowledge book. Medical topics, weather and FARs will be asked from that. Good knowledge of the handbook of your check flight aircraft. Any other book that helps explain. Gliders might be more laid back, but that what they will ask about. Anything aircraft is usually kept short. Mostly simple like AOA and annual requirements.

It’s a glossy rendition but regulation is on the top side as they know most people like the aircraft part, so it’s easy.
