Just took the test and passed. I agree that some of the questions don’t seem relevant to recreational use, especially concerning things like airport radio frequencies, but I did enjoy the challenge and learning a few things outside of my comfort zone. I think this is new not only to us but to Transport Canada as well, and so I would not be surprised to see some modifications as they start receiving feedback.

At last got around to the test and passed comfortably.
The key for me was reading the relevant CARs (just once) and following the invaluable advice in Don Joyce's excellent YouTube Training video that Jacques (Doc_Avid) mentioned below. Thanks, Jacques.

Hi all,

I finally got the time to study and pass the exam. I got a high score but I stand by what I previously stated; more than 50% of the questions are of no interest for a recreational flyer. My feeling is that this is clearly going to kill the hobby for many. Which means higher prices and fewer people to fly. Be careful, many questions are tricky and be prepared to Google a lot (50%) to find the answers to many questions outside the CAR rules.
