Without judging those who have passed the tests recently, all I can say is the no code test is quite easy. I had grand plans of studying for the test, working on remembering spectrum allocations, formulas, etc. but when it came right down to it, I found that all I knew for the last 20-odd years was all I needed to get a passing score.

If you have a chance, scan/review a license guide at a local Radio Shack, then just take the exam. If there is a cost, it will be minimal, and if you fail, you can retake the test at any time.

With the licencing changes its stupidly easy to be a ham now. No code for tech,
5 wpm for all other classes. The same problem we see with certification in the
puter industry is happening with radio, people who aren't qualified but have
good memory are passing the exams.
