I took the SIFT today as well. Mine was a little more painful than most simply because the people at my MEPs first told me it was 1st and 3rd Wednesday and then got me locked out of the test for more than an hour after the Army Aviation Section. I really wish I could retake the 2nd half because the general idiocy of it had me fuming.
I double-clicked a few times but got to 97.
This was definitely the hardest section for me. I got to 20/50 but I am pretty sure I got every single one of the ones I did right.
The pictures were slightly worse than the ones I practiced with but as long as you knock out wrong answers and follow the rules the study guide teaches you, it's not hard.
This one was a bit easier than I thought it would be. I am definitely glad I read the FAA book but there was not one question about Bernouli or Venturi which I found really odd (know it anyway). Know specific US Army helicopters and their role. I'd also know anything that could affect pilots ability to perform.
Unnecessarily convoluted. Read carefully and apply the process of elimination
I thought I would be okay here but the section ended much quicker than I thought it would. I may have accidentally hit a wrong answer after I thought the page was stuck. I kept getting hit with exponent questions so know how those work I guess.
They had all the geometry formulas provided but I would not rely on that.
Understand simple machines, Newton's Laws, and centrifugal force. It was not that bad.
Thanks for the help everyone as I have been lurking these posts since August!
