* FAA Subject Matter Codes (SMCs) are a useful, but outdated way that the FAA used to classify questions. Noawadays, the FAA uses LSCs (Learning Statement Codes.) After you take your actual test at a testing center, you will receive a list of the LSCs, not SMCs, where you got something wrong (if any). This Exams4Pilots site does not classify questions according to LSCs. However, the Dauntless GroundSchool products, available at www.FAATest.com generally classify questions by both LSC and SMC for maximum study effectiveness.
