   This product consists of a single DVD containing 30.5 hours of audio Mp3 files that are to be downloaded to your personal MP3 player. These MP3 files are intended for those having an MP3 player that can transfer files from their computer’s DVD drive to this MP3 player.

   Welcome to your instructor in an audio book. If you don't have the time to read, then just listen and learn because Rod's Handbook is presented in a warm, conversational manner. His tried-and-true method of instruction can be enjoyed during your commute, relaxing at home, or almost anywhere. It allows you to learn in a new, novel and often more efficient manner. Turn wasted freeway time into learning time. As one pilot said, "I felt like I had a flight instructor right there in the car with me."
   Perfect if you don't have the time or inclination to read, or for "tired" eyes at the end of the day. It's a pleasure to be read to, especially from a lively text spiced with humor. You can listen to the first eight chapters without referring to the book's graphics. However, for some chapters, you’ll want to review the pictures, picture text, graphs and charts in the handbook. As such we recommend purchasing the eBook in combination with the audiobook. (Downloads are non-refundable.)

Note-1: For some chapters, you’ll want to review the pictures, picture text, graphs and charts in the handbook. As such we recommend purchasing the eBook in combination with the audiobook.
