  • "I purchased your workbook for the Las Vegas Fire Department.  Although the time left was very short and although I work two jobs, I was able to score 99% on the recent Las Vegas exam!  I have 13 years experience as a firefighter and engineer and in no way does my experience and education give me an advantage in the area of entrance exams because the days of the standard civil service exam seem to be over.  I find that the use of specialized study guides such as those you offer are imperative for one to be a viable candidate in today's highly competitive market.  Once again, thank you very much for a fine product and service." 
  • "The exam prep for the Stress Tolerance, Team Orientation, and Motivation/Attitude helped give me that edge that I never would have had without your materials.  I would easily have paid 5 times this amount for the insight into this part of the examination – it's the reason why I'm now a Chicago Firefighter.  Thank you so much!"
  • "Don McNea Fire School was extremely helpful in allowing me to score high on all levels of the Chicago Firefighter Examination.  I am the second in my family to have successful results by using your preparatory materials."
  • "Amazing similarity between the test materials and the actual test.  Your practice examinations helped me to reach my goal of becoming a New York firefighter."

Your Opportunity!

Your investment in this package will actually be returned to you in your first two hours as a Chicago firefighter!  When considering the cost of this preparatory package, view it as an investment in your future and the future of your family.  In the job market today, there are not many employment opportunities that offer the same competitive salary, benefits, and chance for advancement and job security as the career of a firefighter.  The City of Chicago offers an excellent compensatory package and is an outstanding municipality in which to be a firefighter.
