So. I have so far studied a minimum of 28 hours studying for this stinking test. Plus, I have attended a specialized class for this test from the company that does the education seminars to upkeep your license qualifications... that was 8 hours long. I have a study guide from the CA DPR, I also have a study guide from P.A.P.A (the seminar company)... I have read the CA DPR guide once all the way through and reviewed it once, I have read the other study guide five times all the way through and reviewed it 3 times. The other study guide is much easier to understand... My problem seems to be that when I take the test the questions have multiple correct answers, just one is more right than the others. ( I even memorized a couple of the confusing questions and still could not find a straightforward answer in the study guides) That and the darn questions are phrased so confusingly. I'm usually a great test taker...this is one of the few I have ever failed. First time, I got a 68% on the laws and regulations and this time, I do not know yet what I scored. I also took right of way (78%) and landscape maintenance (84%), I passed those the first time. (you can see online if you passed or failed, but not the score...that gets mailed to you) I think I just made more of a rant than anything...Sorry! Anyone else have these problems with this test?
