  • Tips for studying and passing exam?

    So my test is on 12/08 convienently on a day I am not working. I'm new to this forum btw. So I've been studying putting at least 1-2 hrs a day to study. I got the letter in the mail only 2 weeks ago that gave me the location I'll be taking the test at. So I wanted to know which areas are the most important to study? I was focusing on just the math for now. But now that the test is basically in 2 weeks, what else should I study? And any tips for passing would be great too.

    Well there are many many many tests out there.

    Some are general high school knowledge on up.

    Do you know which brand you are taking??

    Do they have any practice questions on the city web site, or package they gave you??

    I don't know what you mean by brand? And the city is New Jersey I'll take some practice tests though online. they didn't give me a package they just sent the letter though.

        A little to late for that now, plus, not sure which ones are good or bad.

        Anyway good luck, plus test at any department you can, including out of state
        Alright thanks.

          Does anyone know if the New Jersey firefighter exams math section is going to be hard or not? I just took a practice test and it did not give me a result but I just calculated all the questions to see if I got them right and calculated the percentage of how many I got right and it's a 90.
