The key to scoring well on the written examination is preparation.  There are not many candidates who can walk into a written examination and score high on their first attempts without adequate preparation.  You need to practice.  What do we mean by practice?  By taking practice examinations.  It is like studying for any other test you have taken – you need to adequately study and prepare.  The competition for a firefighter position is intense. 

When you take a firefighter examination, you are ranked on the eligibility list from the higher score to the lowest score.  Obviously, you want to be at the top to dramatically increase your chances of moving onto the other parts of the testing process.  The more you study and prepare, the better your score.  Like we said before, you have to want it, and wanting it means you will put the required time in to adequately studying and preparing.  During your preparation, you need to fine tune the areas where you are consistently weak until you feel confident walking into an examination knowing that no one can beat you.

The key to your success on this portion of the hiring process will be how much time you put into preparing for this important first step.  You can do it – you just have to want it!
