I am considering purchasing HTOL to study for the T/G Tests

It's worth it.  I went a bit overboard myself - dad's both former .mil and a pilot, so being gung-ho and enjoying a decent opportunity to study something high tech that may as well be witchcraft to many kind of runs in the family. 

I'm in the process of setting aside funds for a main rig, but people keep getting sick or getting married - in one case, both, but she's feeling MUCH better now.

I would agree that HTOL "IS" the way to go.  After having my General for over 20 years, most of it being inactive, I used HTOL to study and get my Extra ticket.  For a LOT of the math, I had absolutely NO idea what the answers meant, but was still able to pass without problems.  Yes, you still have to do your part and study, but I'm pretty sure that I spent far less time studying for Extra than I did for my General so long ago.

I did, but I can't remember if you were suggesting them at the time, or trying to sort out something. I used it for Tech and General and I think it's a great system..  Sure, there are parts that could be improved.

One suggestion, when I signed up, it said you get a free year for each new transaction, so I used three separate transactions to extend my subscription time to 3 years.

I also used HTOL for my tech and general. I studied for four weeks (63hrs total) and passed both exams in one sitting! It was worth it... However, the tests are right in line with the ones published so you may be able to save some money by using the arrl iPad apps for 4.99.

Just do it!
Stay safe!

FYI, My wife recently got her Tech and used HTOL in addition to a class put on by a local club ( and some tutoring by me ).

My Neighbor Tim used it to pass his tech and general in one sitting.

He is now studying to get his extra.

Hell even I per this site used it to upgrade to extra. Great website. Simply can't go wrong.
The more I learn, the less I know.
