    From a 2008 study slide presentation by an Arizona ARRL Asst. Section Manager:

    Study ONLY The Test, Learn The Rest of HAM Radio LATER !
    Study ONLY the CORRECT answers. Don’t try to learn the theory.
    MINIMIZE The Things You Need To Learn…………MEMORIZE.

    Be careful! You know the crap that was dished out to me to even suggest it was possible, much less being done! :)

    I'll say it before any of the usual apologists do:

    "It's just a hobby."

    Ok, lemme get suited up before I ask this, but... What's the problem?

    How much knowledge must a ham show before being allowed to get their ticket? The FCC believes that passing a short multiple-choice test, even through rote memorization (as evidenced by the fact that the question pools are published), is sufficient. How long have the question pools been available, in one form or another? The ability to study "to the test" has existed for quite a while now, even before the dreaded "no code" date.

    So what's the problem? Why is this a big deal?

    So what's to learn. Plug in a few cables, buy a G5RV, put it up, complain on Q&A when it doesn't work, use CB slang in QSO's, get board with the whole thing, take up tennis.
