    None are really all that difficult. They are mostly multiple choice and the correct answers are common sense.

    Two exceptions. First, any question that requires knowledge of quantity. In that case you need to remember the numbers from your study guide.

    Second, hazmat requires the memorization of all aspects of what is tested.

    I didn’t do tanks, passenger, or school so no idea on that.

    Metal Coil was the only test I failed on the first try. As far as I remember, that was a NY-specific test. It required in-depth knowledge of securement rules and memorization of some numbers, as well as doing math in your head. Hazmat is probably the most difficult, generally.

    They are all super easy with Hazmat being the one you actually had to read up on a bit.
    If you were good at taking tests in school , you dont even need to study most of it , just read the materials

    We only have 1 test here. Just walked in and wrote the test. Wasn't overly difficult.

    Just based on my historical knowledge of listening to failures over the years it seemed to be air brakes and combination vehicles. I am so out of touch these days this may have changed.
