I was thinking about getting a PPL and was wondering if paying for ground school is mandatory or is it possible to buy flight training books and/or DVDs (i.e. jeppeson, king schools, etc.) and FAA test preps to study the material on my own in order to pass the knowledge test? Then use a CFI for the actual flying only.
