Uncommon written test?
I just took a written test and it wasn't at all what I was expecting or had studied. I have been studying Baarons, and 2 other "standardized" fire fighter test study books. The test I took today was more of a home-grown test. No math, tool, mechanical aptitude, floor memorization, etc. If I had to compare it to a FF test, it was really similar to the FF-1 exam (general FF knowledge). Is this uncommon, or do most fire depts have tests like this?

I'm testing with one of our local depts. It is not the standard test (reading comprehension, mechanical, basic tools, maps, etc.) They have a study guide they get from a company....it is all fire-fighting related (FF Orientation, FF Tools & Equipment, Homeland Security, First Aid & Rescue, SOP's.) The entire test comes from the 95 pg study guide. They specifically say, "DO NOT study anything else, just this guide."
