    Default Got a Driver test coming up

    I got a promotional test coming up soon and I have been studying my butt of. Based off the Essentials of fire fighting and Driver/Operator 1st edition.

    Anyone have any tips they have from when they tested that they would like to pass on?

    I would think that ordering a set of study guides would be helpful

    Doesn't your department provide a list of reference materials that the test will be pulled from to promotional candidates?

    Hey Bou,

    First of all, good luck man.

    I'm not sure how things are done in Cali but in Wisconsin usually the written is a combination of a few pumping formulas, math, dynamics of a pump, state traffic laws, incident command structures, building construction, mechanics of equipment and a little bit more math...

    If I would give advice, I would say brush up on those items.
    Keep us posted!

    Stick to studying only the material the test will be taken from.

    You can broaden your horizons after the exam, but I strongly recommend you don't confuse yourself by possibly getting conflicting information from a source other than the approved reference materials.
