    Some good resources here: http://www.arrl.org/studying-for-the-general-license

    But there's also info on the web if you Google things like: Amateur Radio General Class Study

    Congratulations! I got my U.S. General (KB1WSY) nearly 10 years ago and remember the exhilaration. You're already way ahead of me because I then dithered and never actually got on the air ... until this summer after moving to England a few years ago.

    I prefer Gordon West books because if you read them you'll learn something. Plus I do occasionally look in them for reference.

    Amazon is sold out but you probably can find one at a ham gear supply.
    Don't forget to use the practice tests here and eham, they'll help you learn the answers but please do put in time reading.

    I used the Craig Buck books for Tech and General. They are available free on Kindle Unlimited. You can get a 30 day free trial which should be long enough. ARRL free online tests also. I have been licensed for ~6 weeks, have not got a HF antenna up yet. Maybe I'll head to the W7DK ham club and use their rig Saturday. Congrats on the achievement!
