Hi David,

Thanks for your post and sorry to hear about your bad luck with the met exam. I'll take a look at those questions for you but just as note for the future, please don't post entire questions if you can avoid it as CASA takes a really dim view of this and we don't want to cause any trouble there.

1) Tropical cyclones are most common over the ocean between January to March and occur from about 5 degrees to 15 degrees South latitude.
2) None of those answers make any sense in this question and I'm not sure what you meant with the "Deteriorate Left" answer option.
3) Assuming a stable synoptic situation and away from local winds such as sea and land breezes, you can expect the wind speed to be higher in the daytime compared to at night due to convection. Faster moving air is influenced by coriolis force more dramatically and so the daytime wind will tend to be stronger and back during the day and be weaker and veer at night.
4) iso = same, therm = temperature, bar = pressure so a line of equal temperature is an isotherm.
5) I don't have my VFR book handy so I'll have to hold off on answering this one for the moment. I'll get back to you on it.
6) I don't think I understand the question here. Do you mean what atmospheric conditions will predispose to thew formation of Cu cloud versus Nimbostratus cloud?

Cheers,

Rich

Hi David,
Congratulations on your pass. That is great news. Knowing now that they referred to a "strong headwind", it is a bit more obvious what you can expect to happen. If there is an inversion layer, the winds below the inversion must be reasonably light otherwise the inversion will thicken and weaken to the point where it disappears altogether. If you are descending from a "strong" headwind into the inversion layer, you will experience a decrease in the headwind strength and therefore a drop in airspeed as you pass through the boundary. A drop in airspeed will result in a loss of lift - option A.
Cheers,
Rich

Hi Rova,
I know your ur feeling, same case as my previous Casa exam. I think CASA exam is like to be english test (wording, phases) and little bit psychological. Its very hard for me ,and my first language is not English. I keep failing in begin. Finally I Pass all my CPL subject. I can give u some tips and hope its help.
1. Maybe not very clear the theory concepts or Stress during in exam.
2. Some of the question will trick u out if u didn't read the question carefully. Try to use all the time limited, Check and check. Aim to 90-100% in casa exam ( Previous experience as I feel I likely will achieve 80% ,but finally i only got 65-69 % Jesus :ohmy: )
3. After u read the question, Don't read the option first, think ur own answer first. As these options will mix u up easily.
4. Print the part 61 exam syllabus, go though each topic. www.casa.gov.au/wcmswr/_assets/main/lib1...3-schedule-3-new.pdf
5. Get new bob tait cyber exam and aim to 100%.

I hope its help. Don't give up . i think u have to get some relax in this stage .

Hi Rich,

I was doing some reading regarding winds and i found out on this website that wind backs at night and veers during the day www.theairlinepilots.com/forum/viewtopic...bcdc74c131cfe4da267b , im a little bit confused because i don't know which of the two different answers will be considered correct by the CASA PEXO Met exam...
Your prompt reply is highly respected.
