I'm all for the practice tests. It's what I used and waht I recommend.

At the end of the day for what we do you only need to know three things. Frequency (the "channel"), Offset (only applies to repeaters, sometimes you're actually transmitting/talking and receiving/listening on different frequencies, this is the offset.), and Tone (a sound that the human ear cannot hear. Used to filter out real transmissions from fake, most repeaters use this so you cannot talk on the repeater unless you transmit this tone).

Everything else in the test, while useful, isn't a primary skill necessary like the three above.
