I have been studying material for a couple months and ended up failing all the tests. Has anyone else not passed the 1st time? I just felt really bad and had thoughts about not trying anymore. Getting on the road is important to me and I just dont want to keep failing and wasting money. Any advice on anxiety remedies for when I go again to test?October 31, 2017 at 2:06 pm #1735
The questions and answers for all endorsements are free and online. At the top of page click on “Useful links”. You can also Google “practice tests” and “Trucker Country”.
I used to administer tests to future pilots. Here is the easiest way to pass these tests: read the question and then read ONLY THE CORRECT ANSWER. Do NOT read all of the possible answers. At the Trucker Country website take a test, but do not answer any question. When you click to get your score, it will show you the correct answers. Do NOT think the test is asking about real life. Do not get into a “what-if” discussion about the question. Just read the question and then the answer. Do it for maybe 20 minutes then take a break. Go at your own pace. Do all tests on each endorsement until you are scoring 90% and then practice on your next endorsement.
The key is you want to be familiar with the question and then recognize the answer. Reading the question should trigger some key phrase of the answer once you have practiced enough. The goal of the paper or computer test is to pass it. Give them the answer they want and don’t expect to learn real-life ingo from the test.

It is not unusual to not pass some of the endorsement tests and even the pre-trip or driving test the first time. Nobody but you ever know after you get your license. If you fail a test 100 times & then pass your license is the same as anyone else.November 14, 2017 at 8:36 pm #1817
Well I’ve been going at it so I will be going in the morning to retake it. I have a great feeling of passing it this time.
