I passed the check ride. It was not as difficult as I had expected, that's not to say it wasn't hard but I was very motivated and studied hard for this test than any other I've ever taken. The oral was challenging. I found what worked for me and my examiner. If I didn't know the answer then I told the examiner my best guess while looking up the answer. Don't ever give bogus answers. Ever.
The Flight portion was interesting. I made a few mistakes but quickly corrected them and noted my mistake and corrected it before the examiner had a chance to say anything or correct me.
Excellent, I passed!
