Student Comments

  • "The exam prep for the Biodata questions alone was well worth the price I paid. I would have paid 5 times as much to have this kind of insight into the exam."
  • "The practice examinations for the Short Term Memory were worth every penny!  It absolutely made the difference in me scoring in the top percentile on the exam.
  • "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 San Antonio Civil Service Examination.  I am the second in my family to have successful results by using your preparatory materials."
  • "Great preparation!  Your practice examinations helped me to reach my goal of becoming a New York firefighter."
  • "Amazing similarity between the test materials and the actual Los Angeles County Firefighter Examination!"

Custom-designed examinations are what make the difference in our students' continually scoring in the top percentile and getting that coveted fire department badge!

Your Opportunity!

When considering the cost of this preparatory material, view it as an investment in your future or the future of your family!  Your investment in this preparatory package will actually be returned to you in your first hours as a Charlotte firefighter!  In the job market today, there are not many employment opportunities that offer the same competitive salary, benefits, chance for advancement and job security as the career of a Charlotte firefighter does. 

Our Final Thoughts…

You have to ask yourself the following question ~ Will I be adequately prepared for the Biodata Exam questions to put me in the top percentile to be hired as a Charlotte firefighter?

For those of you who have never purchased a Don McNea Fire School preparatory package before, we don't blame you for being skeptical.  What we can tell you is that by studying with our materials, you will dramatically increase your chances of being one of the firefighters hired by the City of Charlotte.  Our successful results from across the nation prove that!

We have been preparing applicants since 1950; this is what our business specializes in.  If you feel at this time that you are adequately prepared for this examination, we wish you the best of luck.  If you want that extra edge over your competition that our testing materials will provide, this prep package is for you!  And, remember that luck goes to the prepared!

Now it's up to you - you can fall into two categories.  One is the 90% of fire applicants who never prepare for an examination and are extremely disappointed in their results.  Or, are you going to be in that 10% that starts preparing for the examination early and are confident, relaxed and ready to meet this very important testing challenge?  That 10% represents most fire applicants that get the job - those that really want it! 

All Don McNea Fire School products contain a no-risk guarantee.  If you are not completely satisfied, we will refund 100% of product cost – no questions asked!

Capt Bob's Oral Interview Preparation

This program has helped over 5,000 candidates get their dream job.  Capt Bob will prepare you for the most misunderstood and least prepared for portion of the testing process.  There are candidates with great credentials who can't present the package at the interview.  If you can't present the package, you don't get the job.  Never, ever.   Capt Bob will discuss skills and methods that can truly catapult your interview skills. 

The "Nugget Principle" enables applicants to personalize their presentations to separate them from the "clone" candidates No one else can tell your story.  Once you start lacing answers with your personal life experiences, no matter if they aren't fire department related, is where you start creating the magic. 

Here are just some of the powerful comments others have made:

    "I saw immediately the mistakes I was making."

    "One 'nugget' paid for the whole program."

    "You gave me the 'nuggets.'  I nailed my next interview and got the job."

    "It was the best money I have spent on gaining a career."

    "The DVD series has helped build up my self-confidence and keep me motivated."

Successful candidates who purchased Capt Bob's CD/DVD Oral Interview Program had this to say:

    "Well, I never thought I would be writing this to you, Captain Bob, but it happened to me also. Just like all those successful stories you have posted, I am another proof that your nuggets work. I just went yesterday to the CPS Oral Board Interview and I did amazing. Out of a possible 120 pts, I scored 119.87 pts! I couldn't believe it! I went in there and it was Show Time. I personalized my answers. Even one of the panel members went outside to tell me I did really well and shook my hand. And another firefighter said that my score was the highest he had seen. Just wanted to say THANK YOU!" Armando

    "Capt. Bob – thank you a thousand times over! I finally got the call on July 21st and start recruit school on September 7th! I know that I owe it all to your program. With it, I didn't give any clones answers and ended up number two on the hiring list. That is more proof that your program really works. I know I was giving clone answers until I got your product. With it, I saw the mistakes, corrected them, and nailed my interview. Thank you again!" Michael C.

    "Captain Bob -- Just wanted to say Thank you so very much for all of your help. I just had my LA City oral and scored 100% and have a background scheduled. They told me that I was the best candidate they have seen all day. This was my very first oral board, I have no firefighter experience, no EMT just a few fire science classes and a CPR cert. I handled the cultural diversity question with the format your suggested and it was a thing of beauty, they were floored, you could see the look of oh my, he so gets this question. Thank you again for all of your insight. I'm a true believer and proof that your program works." Best regards, Bill
