    Default Hawaii exam?

    Hi guys,

    I'm currently seeking information about the firefighter exam for the state of Hawaii. I already tried the local firehouse forum, but no posts there for 30 days, so I thought this would be the next best place.

    Also, I'm interested in these online sites that prep you for said exams, can anyone recommend a good site?

    Be prepared to make a few flights over to Hawaii if you want to take their tests. Each island (county gives their own test) Locals have a big time advantage here. The pay is not good and the cost of living is sky high.

    Last big test was thrown out after candidates made several flights over to complete the process because of some problems.

    AMR medics make more money and transfer over for the good life stints.

    D'oh, sorry I should have mentioned this in the original post, I'm a local resident of the island of Oahu, so I've got that part covered.

    As far as pay goes, it's better than what I'm doing now, and I've wanted to be a firefighter since I was a kid.

    I checked with the fire department this morning, and they said it's about another 2 years for the next exam, so I've got ample time to prep for it.

    I've been reading and a lot of people have been posting about http://www.fireprep.com/ so I'll be visiting there often, but are there any other sites I should know of? I also stumbled across http://www.firequiz.com/ in my search for online prep sites, any feedback on that site?

    Thanks in advance.
