For information on Special VFR, see:
Practice using your airspace knowledge by picking two airports that are approximately 100 NM apart or more. Both airports should be in dense, complex airspace areas. Practice identifying the airspace, its VFR weather minimums, equipment, communication and certificate requirements. Remember that airspace is three dimensional and for every point on a chart, there are typically at least four airspace layers. Practice recalling when airspace changes from Class G to Class E by detecting shaded magenta and shaded blue airspace boundaries.
Be able to identify all Special Use Airspace (SUA) depicted on a chart. Be able to explain the significance, risks, and operating requirements for each type of SUA.
Study Airspace, starting on page 9-37, in 2014 Private Pilot Test Prep.
