    Testimonials from Successful Students

    • "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."
    • "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 attended the San Antonio class of 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 350s.  I am very happy with the improvement and successful test score I achieved!"
    • "After using the Encyclopedia of Firefighter Exams and attending the seminar to get a better understanding of the Behavior Aptitude Exam, I ranked 15th on the eligibility list with the 4th highest score. Thank you so much!"
