    I’d like to commend NACCHO on this effort.

    If you don’t already know about my No-Nonsense study guides, I’d invite you to consider using them for the “ham cram” session. They are widely used throughout the amateur radio community for both ham cram classes and the more traditional, multi-week amateur radio classes. The Technician Class and General Class study guides are available free of charge from http://www.kb6nu.com/tech-manual.

    I have been teaching one-day Tech classes for many years now quite successfully. For tips on how to be more successful, please read my blog post “Teaching a One-Day Tech Class” at http://www.kb6nu.com/teaching-a-one-day-tech-class/.
