In the US there are three levels of ham license, Technician (the easiest), General, and Amateur Extra (requires the most preparation). They no longer require Morse Code. but they all require some technical know-how, and understanding of laws and operating procedure. A lot of the test is common sense. A good resource is the ARRL (Arrl.org) which has a whole bunch of free help for a person who wants to be a ham:http://www.arrl.org/about-arrl. or http://www.arrl.org/licensing-preparation-exams.

You can register for hamtestonline.com for a practice test (Doesn't count). I took less than a month to prep for my Technician exam, and I was only studying part time. You can do it! Good luck
In fact, they have study guides with all the questions they can ask - and the correct answers. The test HAS TO use questions from a standard list, and all the possible questions are included in the guide. And the questions are multiple-choice.
The ham radio license test is not difficult if you prepare well. Go through ARRL reading materials or visit ARRL.org to practice on licensed examinations. You will only be tested on simple electronics knowledge.
