7th Edition
James J. Murtagh and Darryl Haefner - All books by this author

This revised and updated manual presents practice exams similar to those given to firefighter candidates in cities and communities across America. The book opens with a description of the firefighter’s role, the important terminology he or she must understand, and the physical, medical, and written tests they must be able to pass for qualification. General advice and information for prospective firefighters includes physical fitness standards, and learning to recognize and correct weaknesses in visualization, spatial orientation, and more. A brand-new chapter in this edition covers mechanical reasoning, which today’s firefighter must be able to command. Features that follow include—
  • A preliminary diagnostic exam with answers
  • Five full-length practice exams typical of firefighter exams given to candidates across North America
  • All test questions answered and explained
  • Includes information on revised candidate exams (CPAT)
The book concludes with advice on what the successful firefighter candidate should do to prepare himself before taking the exam.
