  • Best tip for re-taking FF 1&2 test after 10 years

    Hey all. I am challenging the firefighter 1 and 2 test for Florida. I originally took the FF test in NC over 10 years ago. I was told by Florida fire college to study based off of the essentials 6th edition material. I have been using the fire exam app that apparently the essentials book has made. Does anyone know if this app is the best choice for studying and retaining the book material again? Ive heard the app is very accurate to the test questions on the test; then I?ve heard the complete opposite... that none of the practice questions were on the test. Does anyone have any experience using the app and if it?s pretty accurate?

    Also, does anyone recommend any other ways to study for the test without reading the book head to toe? That?s not the best way to study for me.

    thanks in advance for your help

    I believe you have to have a 70% and above to pass. Of course I would like to do better. But anyone thats been doing this awhile will understand, you forget a lot of the "book" stuff that you will never use. Same goes for the EMS side.

      Just opening the book randomly when you have a chance and reading for a bit can be helpful - I used to study for college exams by skimming the appropriate chapters before the test. You're bound to pick up a useful tidbit or two each time.

      The sample test apps for amateur radio are based on a specific set of questions, which are referenced in the app. If you miss a question, you can research it in one of the text books that are available. If the test app you are using has a similar feature, be sure to research any question you miss.

      When I started passing the app tests on a regular basis, I knew I was ready to take the actual test.



      Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

      Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

        This is what I have been doing. Any time I miss a question, I read that part of the chapter. Not being lazy, but reading 1500 pages is not going to help me out. I will get side tracked and forget what I read!

        I was just curious if anyone had any experience with this app, and if the app questions were similar to whats on the actual test. The name of the app is 6th essentials of firefighter exam prep plus. And if anyone had any other similar apps that are better? thanks

            Right? I wish everyone accepted IFSAC but they don't. At least I get to challenge it.
