Searching for Fire Lieutenant Exam Prep Online can be a frustrating experience. When searching, the promotional candidate will have to wade through hundreds of sites offering a variety of information about the fire lieutenant or other promotional tests. The information may be in the form of trade articles, PowerPoint presentations, or an occasional link to a company’s website.
We will try and make your Fire Lieutenant Exam Prep Online search more beneficial with a few tips. When searching for study materials for your upcoming promotional exam, you must pay careful attention to who is posting the information. Of course you should be doing this for all the information you may find during any Internet search. Since the information you will use for your promotional exam preparation is vital to improving your score and, hopefully, gaining that promotion you have to spend a little time validating the source of the information. Take a look at the source. See if the source is an individual, organization or a business.
If your Fire Lieutenant Exam Prep Online search yields material from an individual, you should attempt to determine the individual’s credibility. Are they now, or have they been, a fire officer? In terms of the testing process is the department they represent similar to your department? Do they have experience developing and serving as raters for fire lieutenant or similar exams? Are they a subject matter expert (SME) in a particular area of the test that you expect to be a component of your test? What qualifies them as an SME? The answers to these questions will assist you in determining if the information they present will be beneficial to your preparations.
It is important to note that, just because the answer to some of the above questions is negative, the individual may still be a source of quality information. Your job is to determine whether or not the individual is in a position to provide information that will help you perform better during YOUR exam.
If your Fire Lieutenant Exam Prep Online search yields material from an organization you should determine if the organization is a fire service response organization, a fire service related non-response organization, or an organization not truly related to the fire service. If it is a response organization (i.e., another fire department) you should determine how closely the organization aligns with yours in terms of how they manage incidents, deal with personnel problems, and the types of problems they may be facing.
Regardless of the type of organization you should carefully evaluate the information to determine if it is pertinent to your organization and, more importantly, your testing process. The actions you take during your test may vary significantly from the actions recommended by an organization that is dissimilar to yours. You are the final judge to determine if the information they provide will aide you in winning your promotion.
Finally, if your Fire Lieutenant Exam Prep Online search yields material from a business, you should explore the background of the individuals that make up the company or that create it’s content. The questions are similar to those we asked about an individual. Pay careful attention to companies that develop their materials based on a single method and do not offer options.
The more options available to you the higher the chance that there will be material available to you that will help improve your score. Also, if the materials come from a single source or activity (i.e., only from their experiences taking the test) then the material may not be pertinent to what you may experience during your test. Again, the greater the variety of experiences that the company has with promotional preparation and testing the greater the likelihood that their material will be of assistance to you.
Look also for companies that offer printed materials that you can download. This feature allows you to increase the amount of time you can spend practicing the material you learn on the site.
Don’t be afraid to do a little research before you buy. The money spent, in the correct place, can significantly improve your performance during the test and after you win that promotion. For more information visit AspiringFireOfficers.com
