Re: im really worried

Hi Emma,
Your doubts are fuelled by your lack of understanding/knowledge regarding the questions.  Do not learn by rote,your comment that you hope you are studying the right questions implies that you are, and you will learn nothing by doing that and not understand part 2, let alone part 3.  You need to methodically go through each question, yes, the entire question bank and UNDERSTAND each and every one of them - this will stand you in good stead for parts 2 and 3.
In answer to your comment,  carry on doing what you are doing, and yes, you will fail again for your part 1.
So Emma, practice, practice, practice until you cannot get any questions wrong.  wink

What are you reading Emma? need more than a pile of questions.  Like Vanda says, you need to understand, not learn answers by rote.

Re: im really worried

To be honest the part one is fairly easy compared to the other two parts of the course.

Good points made in the above posts. Remember everything you learn in part one you need to take with you into part 2, then you will have to teach both when doing part 3 and after you qualify, use the whole package to teach pupils.

If you just have answers to the questions as laid out in the question bank you will certainly come unstuck. Maybe not now but you will when you are instructing.

Remember pupils will be looking to you for: ''knowledge, experience and reassurance''. If you don't have the answers it could be difficult.

Sorry if this post is a bit sobering, but unfortunately facts can seldom be wrapped up in pretty paper.

Re: im really worried

Emma,  What I did when learning for my part 1 was, read the question, go and find the answer in whichever book it was in, sometimes more than one book and write out the answer in long hand.  By the time I had done that a couple of times I had writers cramp but I knew the answers and also why that answer was correct.

The hazard perception was the bit that seriously worried me, it shouldn't be a game but unfortunately that is exactly what it is.

Re: im really worried

Excellent advice Jellybean, have used this technique myself for many an exam, and just to enhance it slightly everytime you subsequently get it wrong write it out again, you may get writers cramp but after a while you'll know it word for word.  Also agree  about learning the reasoning behind each question, not really important for this part but you'll be amazed at the help it can give you for part 2 and I also assume part 3.

As for HP I also agree it more of a game than anything else so learn to react on the mouse as quickly as your brain registers the hazard (a split second can make all the difference) If your hand eye coordination is already excellent then click twice, not double click as again the second gap between clicks could take you into the scoring area if your really fast at recognising potential hazards. big_smile  Worked for me and my nephew and neice.

Best of luck Emma

Has a free online theory mock test.

And also John Farlams exellent site

http://www.smartdriving.co.uk/

The two books I read were,

The Highway Code and

The info you are learning now is essential for part three

All the best

Re: im really worried

Read: The highway code, Driving the Essential Skills and the Driving Instructors Handbook: from cover to cover over and over if necessary: then practice the questions.

The only way to do this is study: not keep practising questions, until you have done so many you just know the answers.  It's about knowing and understanding the theory not knowing the answers to the questions.

Re: im really worried

Hi Em

The real key to part 1 success is to start part 2 and 3 training BEFORE undertaking the part 1 test!

Theory knowledge is useless unless put into practice, and is soon forgotten.

Re: im really worried

emma. if you want to go ahead and brush up on your driving before the part 2 training begins, book a lesson with a adi and ask him/ her not to be too nice to you with his / her findings and then start to look at your failings which we all develop after a while from passing the first "l" test.

i was told by mine to come back when i could drive !!!!. bit of a joke at the time however, my failings were plenty.
once my indiscretions were pointed out, i began to drive the "dsa" way and got a confident, go for part 2 from the trainer. after training of course.

Hi Em

Don't read until you'r eyes bleed. You'll suprise you'r self how much you know.

As for part 2
Why don't ask for a buddy in you'r area, any PDI near to you gets to practice for PT3, you get a knowledge bod who's just past PT2(for nowt).

You get experience they get experience every one's happy.

I read a quote somewere some jornalist asked some golfer aern't you lucky to be in the top four in the world and the golfer replied you know the more I practice the luckier I get..
