    My learners test study method

    Guys, this post is for my purpose only (As bad as it sounds). I need to study for my learners (Driving exam), so im making this to quiz myself. If any of you other people have to study too, todays your lucky day haha. If I need to post this somewhere else, just tell me.

    Im adding more all the time, the reason for THIS is because I failed on my first attempt, even though im a strong straight-A student.

    Re: My learners test study method

    school smarts have nothing to do with passing a 25 question permit test or passing the driving test. I would recommend downloading the driving manual from your state's DMV website and skimming over that for a bit before. I skimmed mine for about fifteen minutes and took the test and passed. It really depends on how lucky you are, 25 questions randomly selected from 1000+ possibilities. just hope you dont get the ones related to breaking the law and lscense suspensions, because nobody knows those.
    Just remember, logic is your best friend, and so is being ridiculously overly cautious.

    Thanks for your input. I have done the practice test over 30 times, and have consistently gotten over 87%. I also have a physical manual, but I gues I didn't study THAT enough. I think it's the fact that I am overly cautious though... I was way too close to passing, but im OCD about studying for it now. I think 2 of the questions I failed had to do with the law though so haha. And also, I live in Canada (Alberta), and the tests are more difficult (Over 90% of full fledged non GDL drivers would fail the learners test, according to stats)

    Honestly, when I took the test I memorized everything in the entire book like you just did. When all they really ask you is how many months do you go to jail for this or what does this sign mean? (But I live in the states). Anyways, you were probably just nervous. Don't stress. You'll do fine.
