As with the print version, this CD-ROM study guide may be used with either the Essentials of Fire Fighting (5th edition) manual or the Essentials of Fire Fighting and Fire Department Operations (5th edition) manual.
All of the questions are multiple choice and arranged by chapter. The student can specify the number of questions and the range of pages in the manual from which the study questions are chosen. Each time the student uses the program, the questions appear in random order. The student receives immediate feedback as to whether each question was answered correctly or incorrectly. If answered incorrectly, the student is given the page number where the information appears in the manual so that he/she can review the material.
When the student completes the questions, the percentage of correct answers is reported. The student can print a study sheet to help review topics that need further study. Students who perform well using this study guide should be prepared to successfully complete a formal course or certification examination.
