By Radio Nav, I meant electronic navigation, GPS, Loran, RDF?

I have been skipping these chapters as I too am guessing it is out of the scope of the certification. I also don't want to weigh down my head with information I can't use until I have radar, sextant or GPS to use. However, I don't want any surprises on the test.
