About this app

Brought to you by the same team who pioneered remote ham radio exams in the United States and Sponsored by Icom, HamStudy is driven by the same backend database and so the question pools are *always* up to date. When changes are made or new pools released they will be available on the pool list screen of the app if you are connected to the Internet.

This app does not require an active internet connection to use, but when you have one it will sync your progress with the HamStudy.org website and download updates for all content.

HamStudy is a question pool based study tool designed to supplement your existing study methods, whatever they may be! HamStudy is not designed to be a full instructional tool but you can learn a surprising amount with the included explanations for all questions, courtesy of our many wonderful users!

Designed and written by hams with volunteer examiner experience and Sponsored by Icom, this is not your typical study app -- most study apps will focus on practice exams, which is somewhat like studying for your math test by throwing darts at your textbook. HamStudy is focussed on providing you with the tools you need to study the parts of the question pool that you most need to see.

Our intelligent Study Mode tracks your progress as you move through the pool, providing you with full statistics on what you've seen and giving you the visibility into where you need to study. It will automatically repeat questions as needed. When you don't understand something you can tap the "explain" button to view an explanation of the question. Practice Exams make it easy to see how close you are to passing and see what areas to focus on in Study Mode.

Share your progress with your friends or instructor and study together!

* Study *all* current US Amateur Radio question pools (Technician, General, Amateur Extra) -- updates can be downloaded for free when they become available. Additional pools, such as the FCC commercial pools and several international pools, are also available for download in the app. For a full list go to https://hamstudy.org and click the "other" dropdown.

* HamStudy's revolutionary Study Modes work with you to ensure you learn the questions; they automatically track your progress and adjust the pace to keep you challenged but not frustrated. User-submitted explanations help you avoid the pitfall of just memorizing answers. Synchronize with your online HamStudy.org account to prevent data loss and be able to switch devices easily.

* Share your progress with other HamStudy.org users and help each other keep progressing towards that next license exam!

I would give this app 10 stars if I could. Fantastic tool! I just passed my Extra exam with a 96% correct thanks to this app. I love how it gives so much flexibility in what you study, and tracks your weak and strong areas. It reinforces the areas where you are weak, and provides excellent, concise explanations for the answers. And of course, is very convenient to use. Beautifully designed and exceptionally functional. Thank you, Signal Stuff folks!

Excellent method to memorize ham radio exam questions, all elements.. However, on the Android version, I noticed that during my study for the amateur Extra exam, I want being presented with all the questions. Certain questions would never appear. I thought I had gotten around this by setting a filter, and I could see most of the question pool. I think I could have gotten the full list by studying one element at a time. Android 12, Google Pixel 6.

I can't explain why you felt you missed some -- I have looked at your specific study history after you sent us details and you have seen every question multiple times, in fact from what I can see the algorithms worked perfectly. Perhaps you were comparing against an old pool? I don't know, but you definitely saw everything.

Since I first installed it early in 2019, this app would occasionally lock up at one screen or another. It would continue to work after a forced stop. It would also lose the "sync" account information when the app updated. The most recent update caused the app to freeze at the splash screen. I reported all this to the developer and he was very responsive. Following a reinstall (with Automatic Restore turned off), the app ran correctly, and now supports the back arrow to navigate and close the app. The app does have the capability of selecting an individual subelement for study, on the statistics screen, which helps break a large question pool into manageable chunks. The app also offers explanations of the answers, rather than just "Incorrect". Recommended for those who would like an offline study tool on their phone which can sync with a browser-based version of the same tool.

Hey Dean, Really sorry to hear you've had such a frustrating time. If you have a moment and could email us at helpdesk@hamstudy.org with details on which device you're using that would help us a lot in trying to understand why your experience has been so poor; most devices seem to be working great, so we'd like to know more about your case.
