READING FOR MEANING
IN STUDYING FOR YOUR PROMOTIONAL EXAM

As you go through the subjects you have chosen to study, try to find the main points of the documents that focus on that subject.  Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What are the main points of this document?
     
  • Which details will I need to know to do the job of a fire lieutenant?
     
  • Which details am I already familiar with from on-the-job experience?
     
  • Is this new information that I have never seen before?
    • o If so, why haven't I heard about this?

      o Is this a new procedure which I must learn or is it something that is outdated and no longer useful?  (If you are unsure, ask someone who is familiar with the procedure.)

It is easy to be reading along without actually getting the gist of the information that you are reading.  As a general rule, read the material, put it aside, then ask yourself what you just read.  This will ensure that you are paying attention and reading for meaning.
