This book is an important reference source for all AMTs seeking to add Inspection Authorization (IA) to his or her qualifications, as well as AMT schools preparing students for the IA test. All Inspection Authorization candidates must take and pass the FAAâs IA Knowledge Exam.The IA exam remains a âclosed testââthe exact database of questions is not available to the publicâwhich makes the IA Test Prep a great way to prepare for it. The IA exam differs from other FAA exams in that questions do not refer to a specific figure. Instead, applicants must learn to glean the information they need from the FAA Supplement (CT-8080-8) made available for use during the test. The nearly 500 sample questions typify those that candidates are likely to encounter, and train readers in the use of the available documents. Answer choices are supported with explanations, with FAA references identified for further study. This test prep also provides details on what applicants need to know about the certification process, insight into the function of an IA, and excerpts of regulations, advisory circulars, airworthiness directives, type certificate data sheets, FAA orders and aircraft specifications. Resources such as pertinent excerpts from these FAA documents and more are reprinted in this study guide; additionally, readers can access additional study material for this book at a special "Reader Resources" page at the ASA website.The IA Test Prep conveniently compiles the reference materials necessary to prepare for this exam into one volume, for an organized study program that AMT schools, instructors, and individuals alike can use to streamline their studies.
