Gentlemen: As in every aspect of life we go as far as we can and as far as our understanding will take us. I for one have fought higher math and "Theroy" all my life and it does not click. So, I will be the best General operator I can be. I can probably shot better than most and survive in a hostile environment better than most but I cannot understand and fathom theory. 

Yes I could memorize the test but, I still would not be any more qualified than I am right now. We need to compromize and keep the hobby alive and work "All" licensed hams.
