The Official W1UL Ham Cram Website

Ham Cram Quick Start

Welcome to the W1UL Free Ham License Preparation Website

What is a ham cram? Historically a ham cram is a high intensity study session used for test preparation, typically a full day class for the technician class license.

What is different about the W1UL ham cram methodology? Essentially, the W1UL method is a ham cram on steroids. The W1UL system has five identifying characteristics:

1. The W1UL Ham Cram study session displays the actual pool questions and only the correct answers thus forming an association between the question and the answer.

2. A user can optionally chose "Expert Mode" where a panel of experts has selected only those questions most likely to appear on the actual test are used when building a study session.

3. Technician, General and Extra class preparation are currently supported..

4. Since the entire study material is online you can study at your own pace.

5. Best of all, all the offered material is totally FREE.

This ham cram website gives you all the tools you need to pass the FCC tests with a minimum of effort and a higher level of confidence since a the percentage of candidates using the W1UL Ham Cram method pass the tests than those using any other test preparation program.
