Good luck!
Yea, I was up to the 20 wpm extra requirement and could have passed the exam with a little study, but that was in high school and my interest soon turned to girls and the ham thing went to the weigh side.

Where do you go to take the exam now? I am located an hour away from Honolulu.

BTW- just took the practice exam and only got a 67%- FAILED. A lot of the frequency alocations have changed since I got my license.
