Student Comments

  • "The exam prep for Behavior Attributes and Counterproductive Workplace Behaviors/Integrity Related Factors Exam alone was well worth the price I paid!  I would have paid 5 times this amount to have this kind of insight into the exam."
  • "I attended the San Antonio class for the Don McNea Fire School. I had a rank of 9th on the San Antonio list. The prior year when I did not use the Don McNea Fire School, I ranked in the 350's.  I am very happy with the improvement and successful test score I achieved."
  • "Great presentation by the instructor.  It dramatically helped me prepare for the San Antonio Fire Test.  Just having examples of the test questions and having the instructor go over them really made a difference.  I'm sure I wouldn't have scored as high as I did (98%) if I wouldn't have taken the seminar."
  •  "I am prepping for the San Antonio Fire Department Exam.  I was referred to you by several people currently in the department.  Every single one of them swear by your program and highly suggested I attend your seminar."
  •  "After using the Encyclopedia of Firefighter Exams and attending the seminar, I ranked 11th on the eligibility list, with the 3rd highest score (before adding veteran's points).  Thank you!"
  • "I recently took your San Antonio seminar and wanted to send you a quick note to express my thanks.  The practice examinations I took in your seminar without a doubt helped me to score in the high 90s on the exam.  I'm on my way to becoming a San Antonio firefighter thanks to you.  Again, thank you very much!"
  • "The practice examination material was extremely informative and was perfect prep for the test.  The practice exams were helpful to a person like me who has been out of school and testing for six years.  Thank you to all who were involved in Don McNea Fire School."
  • "I took the I/O Solutions exam previously and finished with a very disappointing score of 82%.  My dream department was testing and there was no way I was going to score that low again.  I did an internet search and found your exam prep.  My score increased to 96.4%, which put me #1 on the eligibility list.  I really can't say thank you enough!"

Our best testimonials come from current San Antonio Firefighters who have been successful by preparing with our materials over the last 16 years.  If you are not sure whether our materials will help prepare you for this exam, we ask that you talk to a San Antonio firefighter who has successfully prepared with us in the past.

Our Final Thoughts…

You have to ask yourself the following question ~ Will I be adequately prepared for the behavior attributes, counterproductive workplace behaviors/integrity related personality factors exam to put me in the top percentile to be hired as a San Antonio firefighter?  Don McNea Fire School will be focusing the seminar on these most important testing subjects. 

For those of you who have never attended a Don McNea Fire School seminar before, we don't blame you for being skeptical.  What we can tell you is that by attending our seminar and practicing with over 500 custom-designed practice examination questions , you WILL dramatically increase your chance of becoming a San Antonio firefighter.  Our past classes' successful results prove that!

We have been conducting preparatory classes since 1950; this is what our business specializes in.  The instructor for the seminar has personally taught over 10,000 fire candidates across the country with extremely successful results.  

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 and seminar will provide, this class is for you!  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! 

The instructor for your San Antonio Preparatory Seminar will be Chief Brent Collins, who is also President of Don McNea Fire School.

Past results from our San Antonio seminars include 39 of the first 50 students on the eligibility list were Don McNea Fire School Students!
