JAR/EASA 66 Exams

Post by airoshane » Sat Nov 25, 2006 5:10 pm

I am sitting 3 exams the week before Christmas. I have to sit
-Electrical Fundamentals
-Maths
-Physics

Just wondering if anyone has a sample exam. They seem to be very hard to find. The whole Aircraft Systems class at Carlow IT will thank you for it!

I need help!
I just had war with the college and had to get the Irish Aviation Authority involved. If anyone here can answer this question it would be really helpful as I am getting serious abuse from the college for disputing it.

The question is... are log tables allowed in the EASA Part 66 exams.

Thanks in advance.

I m here to defend frank. He's a really nice guy if you attend every day and show a bit of respect. I found the electrical fundimentals exam fine... thanks to him!

That Brendan Laffan guy, total different story.

I needed them for the maths module. One of the questions said "use your log tables to calculate".
I also needed them to calculate the sine of an angle. We had to calculate the area of a triangle. The formula being 1/2A.BxSinC. How were we going to calculate the sine of the angle without the tables?
There was also some area and volume questions on the paper aswell.

well you'r supposed to know the formulas for all of area and volume.
what was the question? the question about ''use your log tables''???
thats sounds like a typical bad question from an IAA question bank.were ye told before how the test was broken down?? say for example 5 questions on area and volume etc???? handy to know.

Here is the worst bit...The college staff made out the paper. Back to college tomorrow to finish this mess. I have 60 people on my side! 40 from aircraft systems and 20 from avionics.

Nobody mentioned the lay out of the paper. Our maths teacher went on un-paid leave and they left us with an aeronautical engineer who didn't have a clue.
