Thanks Pat!

Got the pool downloaded and saved. Glad to see the answers with the questions to. I didn't notice the answers at first glance.

The General tests from now through June 30, 2007 will still be based
on the "old" pool.

The pool is NOT changing in January. The "new" question pool for the
General License will be RELEASED in January, but July 1, 2007 is when
the the pool goes into effect. July 1 is when exams will be based on
that new pool of questions. Publishers of study guides, sites, and
software, and instructors need the lead time to have materials ready
for July 1.

I have applied stickers from ARRL/VEC to the current General and
Extra exams to replace a few (no longer valid) questions with other
questions from the current question pool. People will still be taking
the "old" tests, so study the manual you now have.

Remember that online tests don't always cover every question in the
pool. The current question pool (valid now through June 30, 2007) can
be downloaded from:

http://www.ncvec.org/downloads/2004general.pdf

This page lists the questions that have been eliminated from the pool:

If the question pool will change for General Class in January, how quickly
might QRZ.com revamp their pool?

I have been using that site to study for the written exam for some time.

David,

I just read the news. This makes creating a General Class Study Guide
even
more important when the new General Question pool is released in January.
