Don’t be thrown off by the look and feel of this little gem. How to Fail Your Flight Test, self-published by longtime CFI and FAA designated examiner Roger Sharp, is a gold mine of great advice on taking and passing—yes, passing!—your practical flight test. Presented with a mix of Sharp’s unique brand of acerbic wit and laugh-out-loud sarcasm, How to Fail Your Flight Test takes a complex subject and presents it in its lowest common denominator form by giving practical advice on how to work with (and maybe work) your examiner. In tip #3, for instance, Sharp recommends to those looking to fail their test to not practice giving their answers aloud, while in tip #17 he suggests you never look outside the plane while flying the VFR portion of your test. These gems, along with many others, will prepare the reader for that FAA test with heaping doses of practical wisdom delivered with a laugh and a smile.
