    A list of the “best references” is contained at the front of the practical test guide for the checkride you plan on taking.(page 3 of the current Flight Instructor Airplane PTS). If you know all that stuff cold then any checkride should be a walk in the park.

    If you have to read just one book then I’d go with FAA-H-8083-9 Aviation Instructor’s Handbook – that’s the one true FAA way of instructing.

    Might I suggest however that you add a new CFI rating. For example if you don’t have a instrument instructor you could do that or add a multi instructor rating. That will re-instate your CFI and you get the extra rating, and you’re going to have to do most of the work either way you go.
