All the people I've talked to in San Diego want $70 to sign it, since I
don't have someone I'm taking regular lessons from at this time.

I'm trying to avoid
giving a CFI $70 so that he can spend 15 seconds looking at my answers

and
signing off on the test (sorry CFIs).


A typical CFI fee is on the order of $40 per hour, which comes to much

less
than $70 for 15 seconds.

FAR 61.103d (http://makeashorterlink.com/?A2F925F6A) does require a CFI's
signoff before you take the knowledge test. Typically, if you do

self-study,
the CFI will assess your readiness in the course of talking to you during
your flight training (and will probably ask you to take a sample test as
well), with little or no additional cost for the assessment and signoff.
Also, there's no need to follow a program like Sporty's (unless you find

it
helpful); just reading a good textbook is sufficient.
