I took my test today and passed...barely, got a 70%. The test was MUCH more difficult than I thought. I studied everything I could find for weeks and crammed every day this week leading up the exam and still barely passed.

Here's my advice to those of you who are planning to take the test but have not yet done so. STUDY, STUDY, STUDY!!!!!!! Be able to ready Navagational Charts forwards, backwards, upsidedown. Know ALL about airspace, I mean floors, ceilings, colors, solid colors vs dotted lines, ALL OF IT! Know weather, not just a little but know as much or more than your local TV weatherperson, Know all abourt clouds, inversions, again, ALL OF IT.  I memoriezed all that Decision Making stuff: IMSAFE, PAVE, CARE, TEAM, DECIDE...didn't need any of that, just the basics, what I would call common sense of operating a UAS.

Hope that helps. Don't worry about the time, 2 hours is plenty for the test but don't go too slowly. Read the questions CAREFULLY. The FAA is very sneaky with it's wording of questions. I missed one about maximum weight of a UAS. I clicked 55lbs but it was wrong. I can only assume there was something tricky in the questions I didn't see. Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been studying for a couple weeks now. As far as the weight question it's under 55 lbs.

I passed my UAS 107 recently and you don't have to spend a lot of money to do so. Here's my preparation experience. I used a Google app call UAS107. Used it for 70% (30% YouTube sectional chart videos) of my prep for the exam; and the app only cost me $4. Passed on my 1st try with an 85%. My total cost to pass the exam:

$4 for UAS107 app
$150 for the test exam fee
———————————–
$154.00
Here is the link to the app for anyone interested: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... otix.labs&hl=en

Thanks DJI Tom!  

Just passed my part 107 exam thanks to some of the tips.   I used Googleplay app UAS107;  I was a little skeptical at first, but the app is legit.  Used it for most of my study, and  passed on my 1st try with a 90%.   I believe a link to the app is above, but I have also included it below for anyone who may be interested in taking the exam.  The best part, the app was only $4 dollars, way cheaper than some of those online course which can cost hundreds of dollars.  Here's my tip for any one wanting to take the exam.  Don't waste your time with convoluted classes, get something that will get straight to the point.   The UAS107 app does that and you can also find some really good YouTube videos that are also straight forward.  

Good luck and here's the link to the app: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... 07.openrobotix.labs

Is the UAS107 app available for apple OS? I searched in the app store, but didn't see it.
I did find an FAA 107 Study Buddy app for $19.99...but that's about it that closely resembled what you mentioned.
