    If You Wash Can You Reapply Next Bid?

    I agree with you. I also only missed by a small amount. Just because someone didn't pass (especially marginally) doesn't mean they didn't put in the effort, didn't care, or didn't try. I think it would actually be adventageous for the FAA to allow people who barely didnt pass, a chance to...

    Use of IPads or Laptops to Take Notes in Class?

    NO phones in class, they make you leave it on a desk at the front of class. If you are caught with a phone at you desk in class, that is grounds for termination. They just dont want anyone taking photos or recording. I would assume that goes for IPADs too.

    Packing List

    Sheesh! Well, I guess its just something you cant control anyway, none of the places I called for lodging have shelters. From what I hear as long as you are not in Moore, you should be relatively safe.
