Preparation for the Exam

  • Make sure that you can do well on the exam by taking an ONLINE or COMPUTER based practice test like:
  • There are many more free and for fee practice exams. Take them many times until you are reliably scoring ten to fifteen points higher than you want to pass with.  70% is the minimum passing score.
  • If you have waited weeks or months or more after taking a ground school or computer based study course, you will not pass without refreshing your studies and taking several practice tests.  We see people fail because they are stale.
  • Do not cram all night until 3 am and expect to pass.
