EDITOR’S OPINION: At MARS we favor the traditional class structure, where students learn the license material over several weeks. Our experience has shown that this makes for a more knowledgeable licensee. That is why we teach the traditional classes that we do. We nevertheless recognize that there may be individuals that cannot, or are unwilling to, devote the time necessary to attend a multi-week class. There are other methods to learn how to pass the exam. As long as the candidate learns the material, and has mentoring available when licensed, it’s OK. ( R. Jenkins, KA6BQF Editor)
