    Do what is best for you as far as studying. I will give you this advice. When in a stressful situation you will always fall back on your training. Being a pump operator/ Driver is a vital role on any fire scene.
    What you are doing is important.

    I agree, it is very important to know and understand how to run your pump and understand the fundamentals behind it.

    The best advice I can give you is study your quizes, or the quizes at the end of each chapter. Take it seriously or you won't pass.
