Go to for details!


Don McNea Fire School is the number one firefighter preparatory school in the country.  Since 1950, our seminars and entry-level products have successfully prepared over 60,000 applicants for firefighter examinations across the country.  We are again providing that same competitive edge to fire applicants for the New York Firefighter Examination with our 375-question exam prep package. 

Don McNea Fire School has prepared thousands of applicants across the country with the same test consultant, PSI, who will be giving your New York Firefighter Exam with extremely successful results.  Our applicants across the country continue to finish in the top percentile and move on to the next phases of the hiring process.

This New York Firefighter Examination 375-Question Preparatory Package includes:

    Background Information Survey Examination - This will be the key to your New York Firefighter Examination!  The Background Information Survey exam measures your views on work-related situations and behaviors, including attributes such as conscientiousness, handling work pressure, getting along with others, integrity/trustworthiness and other areas. 

     Applicants are failing this type of examination across the country at a rate of 60-70%!   Why is that?  Because the number one failure on this type of examination is not knowing what information the examiner is looking for in this type of examination format.  99% of the New York Firefighter applicants have never taken an exam like this. 

    In our Background Information Survey Practice Examination, we also identify major personality traits and characteristics of a successful firefighter and we address specific reasons why candidates with excellent credentials are failing these types of exams. 

    Our Background Information Survey practice examination contains over 175 questionsWith each question, we provide you with suggested answers and explanations that put you in the mindset of what the examiners are looking for in top-scoring applicants. 

    Don't go into the examination unprepared for the most important part of your New York Firefighter Exam.  Your score on the Background Information Survey exam will be extremely important in determining your placement on the eligibility list and whether or not you become a New York Firefighter!  This is where the ballgame will be won for your New York Firefighter Examination!

    This exam prep will separate you from the anticipated over 70,000 applicants for this exam and put you in the top percentile to be hired by the Fire Department of New York City!

    In addition, we have put together 200 practice examination questions and test-taking strategies specifically structured for the New York Firefighter Examination's additional testing subjects:

    • Reading Comprehension
    • Basic Arithmetic

    We have included test-taking strategies for the video portion of your examination.

Student Comments

  • "The exam prep for the Background Information Survey alone was well worth the price I paid.  I would have paid 5 times that much to have this kind of insight into the exam!"
  • "The practice examination material was extremely informative and it was the perfect prep for the test.  For someone like me who has been out of school and testing for 6 years, I had no idea what to expect on the Background Information Survey Exam.  It was a great help, especially since each question had an explanation. It helped me through the entire test."
  • "I prepared for the New York Firefighter Examination with your materials and wanted to send you a quick note to express my thanks.  The practice examinations I took without a doubt helped me to score better on the exam than I ever could have without them.  I'm on my way to becoming a New York Firefighter thanks to you."
  • "I had no idea what to expect on the New York Firefighter Exam.  A friend of mine had purchased your exam prep and told me about the practice exam for the Background Information Survey Exam prep.  I had never taken an exam like this before – I'm so glad he recommended me to your website.  Thanks!"
  • "Great preparation!  I would never have scored this high and been in a position to become a New York Firefighter without your material.  The exam prep was spot on and just amazing!  Thank you so much."
  • "Don McNea Fire School was extremely helpful in allowing me to score high on all levels of the Columbus Civil Service 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, especially the Background Information Exams, helped me to be successful on the recent Los Angeles County firefighter exam."
  • "I used your materials to prepare for the Las Vegas Fire Department Exam.  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."
