That's already been done...

FWIW, I'll mention that I used:

Ham Test Online


to prep for my tests.  I took, and passed, both the Technician and the General test the same day.  (You can do that, as long as you pass each test in sequence.  Some people actually do the Technician - General - Advanced tests all at once.)

Anyway, I thought they had a great training system.  If they had used this same system to teach math, I probably would have passed Calculus in college.

I have a Tech though never use it. My son passed his Amateur Extra at 10, yes, 10 yrs old, with morse and all (Morse for the General license back in the day 20 yrs ago). He had an article written up in QST about it. That would have been in oh, about 2000.
They say when you get older two things happen, one is you lose your memory and the other, I forget.

Organized people are simply too lazy to search for stuff.

Now that the no code for the General license is there, that’s the better option. More spectrum to utilize. 
I just can’t get motivated to start back up.

Same here, there is not a lot of net traffic around here anymore. Can’t see the need to go study and get my general since it seems like Ham radio is in a slump.
