Apologies for a real beginner's questions... QUESTION 1: IREX book says amongst others I need the AIP book including SUP. The website I ordered my AIPs from (as part of the AIP description) says, "Please visit the Airservices Australia Aeronautical Information Package website for the Aeronautical Information Circulars (AIC) and AIP Supplements (SUP) Summary.
" But when I go there, there are only online versions, no hardcopies I can take to the exam. Is it still possible to buy hardcopies of the SUPs anywhere? If not, what does that mean for the exams?
QUESTION 2: (Part a) Back in the day, I would see people with their AIPs with many, many tags in them, but am I reading this right that we are now only allowed a max of 15 tags in the AIP for the IREX exam.
www.casa.gov.au/licences-and-certificati...terial-under-part-61 "Marking and tagging of permitted documents
Underlining and highlighting are permissible provided these do not include any form of notations. With effect from 10 April 2017, where specific publications are permitted in exam session, the maximum number of tags per respective publication shall be as follows:
(i) CAR (1988), (ii) CASR (1998), (iii) CASR Part 61 and (iv) CASR Part 137 – no tag permitted
CAO – no tag permitted AIP Book (or its Jeppesen equivalent) – maximum 15 (fifteen) tags"
(Part b) ...if only 15 tags really are permitted, where does that leave us with dividers - are they classed as tags? Eg.
...and if these are classed as tags, where does that leave us with the 5 dividers that come with the AIPs - Do they count as 5 of your 15 tags?
Stuart Tait replied the topic: AIP (SUP)/AIP tagging
The SUP's aren't necessary for the exam you can happily ignore them, dividers do not count as tags and yes 15 is the maximum you can use. We have a extract for the CAR CAO CASR that covers all you need for the exam and is approved to take into the exam, you can find it here
I'll link in a couple of threads that might fill in any other questions you might have.

Thanks Stuart for the prompt and super helpful reply - all of that information will really assist. I assume I am free to bind the extracts any way I choose - eg. Punch holed and in binders, or stapled etc. etc.
