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 40,000 applicants for firefighter examinations across the country.  We are now providing that same competitive edge to fire applicants for the Oakland Firefighter Examination. 

At-Home Preparatory Package

Don McNea Fire School has assembled a 300-question, custom-designed practice examination specifically structured to the 2012 City of Oakland testing subjects – this is not generic testing! 

  • Understanding Oral Directions - This portion of the examination will count for 20% of your score – this is where most firefighter applicants across the country do poorly.  We have developed a 120-question practice examination specifically to meet the challenges of this difficult portion of the examination.  There is no other preparation of this type available anywhere to help you increase your score on this part of the test! 

This practice examination includes practice examination questions on the following subjects:

  • Reading/Understanding Written Information
  • Interpersonal/Human Relations
  • Mathematic/Numerical Skills
  • Maps and Mechanical Drawings

Remember that only those candidates who score high enough on the written exam will continue on to the interviews.  Our preparatory package will increase your chances of moving on in the examination process!


We will include FREE of charge the following:

  • Top Scoring Test-taking Strategies to further help you improve your score!
  • Physical Agility Strategies that have helped thousands!
  • Watchlist of the Top 150 Fire Departments across the country, featuring addresses, phone numbers and website information so that you can keep current on when departments are giving firefighter examinations.

Your Opportunity!

Your investment in this package will actually be returned to you in your first two hours as a 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 Oakland offers an excellent compensatory package and is an outstanding municipality in which to be a firefighter.

Fire Candidates who recently purchased this product had this to say:

  • "I want to thank you for helping me overcome this difficult part of the exam process which has really hampered me from increasing my score. I took your practice examinations, paid attention to your strategies and am now either acing all 20 questions or getting 19 out of 20. I have moved myself up from finishing in the middle half of the candidates to now finishing in the top 5%. Thank you!" Chris from Sacramento
  • "I went unprepared for four examinations in which Understanding Oral Information was part of the test. When I walked into the examination, I didn't know what to expect. I thought I could take notes, realized I couldn't, and tried to remember everything which was very hard for me. Your program helped me realize the mistakes I was making and I now have the confidence to go into this type of examination. I have two upcoming examinations and I can't wait for them and blow my competition away!" Kyle from California
  • "Thank you so much for offering this type of practice examination. I searched the internet looking for something that would help me improve my scores; when I came across your web site it was a God send. When I took this type of examination, I was acing the other parts and only getting at most 15 out of the 20 questions right for the Understanding Oral Information portion. I have now taken 3 examinations and my test scores are as follows: 97.5, 98.2, and 97.9. I have put myself in the top 10 on each of these examinations. I'll keep you posted as I go through the rest of the hiring process. Thank you again!" Joe from Washington.
