Anyone used this study guide on Apple Books for studying for IREX?

Can’t see what you’ve linked to but I can tell you if you’re using anything other than Bob Tait’s IREX book you’re wasting your time. Sat it early January and most of the questions were lifted directly from Bob’s book. A few were out of Avery’s practice exam book but nothing that Bob’s book didn’t cover.

Looking at the advertised pictures, they are still using the 1950s VOR dials, with the rotating bezel but the CDI is fixed fore-and-aft, a real opportunity for spatial disorientation. They also talk about fixed-card ADF. Didn't look any further, so there is probably info on glass screens, but if CA$A is still expecting people to be using those old instruments, and is basing the exams on them, I am very disappointed. Well, I was disappointed with CA$A a long time ago, so I remain in that condition.

Stick with the tried and true method of Bob Taits book.

If you follow it cover to cover you will do just fine.
