Regarding the Extra exam, I found it more of an
IQ test than a meaningful ham radio test. Some
of the questions were of dubious value in my
opinion in determining how well versed you were
about amateur radio.
I got my first Extra in 1953 when the questions
seems to be meaningful and I had to copy 20 WPM
of code groups. Then I did an incredibly stupid
thing: I let it run out. The second time around was
perhaps 10 years or so ago and it was at that time
that the test seemed so weird to me.
