When I decided to pass the Extra exams, I answered every question in
the Extra pool. I did it section by section, when I missed a question
I would go review the appropriate material in the Extra study guide,
Part 97 or other resources. Most sections I only missed a few, but
the rules/regs section was tough, all sorts of detail of when you
notify the gummint before and after launching a satellite and stuff
like that.

I did this the afternoon before I took the test, and passed without
problem. No, I didn't just memorize the correct answers, I actually
looked at the material, but the rules/regs questions really only
can be memorized in the end...
