Student Comments

  • "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." 
  • "Don McNea Fire School was extremely helpful in allowing me to score high on all levels of the Cincinnati 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 helped me to reach my goal of becoming a Los Angeles firefighter."
