Exam Information:
Florida State Contractors must pass a Business & Finance exam plus Trade Knowledge examinations with a minimum score of 70%. These tests may be taken in any order, but since the Business & Finance books and study material are required for both exams, it is much easier to prepare, pass, and get this exam completed first. 

(1) Business & Finance Exam  "Computer Based Test"
This is an "Open Book Test" utilizing 3 exam reference books with 120 multiple choice questions to be completed in 6 ½ hours. This test is administered on computer at over a thousand testing centers across the country and students may schedule to take this exam at any location and on any date convenient for them. 

Our exam prep program has been designed to uniquely simulate the State testing interface so that students may practice taking tests on computer which are just like the real State exam. This familiarity gives our students a tremendous advantage on exam day.

(2) Marine Specialty Contractor Trade Knowledge Exam  "Paper & Pencil Test"
This is also an "Open Book Test" with 80 multiple choice questions which must be completed in 4 ¾ hours. This test is offered 3 times a year (February, June, October) in Tallahassee, Orlando and Miami. Students must register at least 30 days prior to the testing date they desire.

Testing for both these classifications are offered every even month in Tallahassee, Orlando and Miami. Students must register at least 30 days prior to the testing date they desire.he required exam reference books are listed here: EXAM BOOK LIST

Most contractor exam candidates have a great deal of personal experience in their trade and do not have difficulty passing the "General Trade Knowledge" portion of their examination. But very few students have financial accounting experience and therefore find the "Business & Finance" portion of the test very challenging.

We do NOT currently offer a Learning Program covering the General Trade Knowledge Portion of the Marine Specialty Contractor Exam.
But, we DO offer our acclaimed Business and Finance Exam Learning Program for students who want every advantage in passing this exam.

Randomly-Generated "Practice Exams":

Unlike other schools that typically create one mock practice exam for their students, our revolutionary system randomly-generates a new set of questions each and every time you launch the module, utilizing the same content criteria the state uses to compile the real test.

Upon completion, the system will generate a unique "Performance Assessment" that isolates incorrectly answered questions and provides detailed explanations to ensure students know exactly how to derive the correct answers. Easy-to-read graphs will display the student's areas of proficiency and areas of weakness. It also indicates where their speed is on target and where they are answering questions too slowly. This state-of-the-art tool gives our students a systematic approach to review and master the required material and increase their overall exam scores.

Because most contractors are active individuals out and about in the field each day, the experience of sitting in a cubical for 6 hours straight, taking a computer-based state certification exam is very stressful. Especially if they have never seen or used the computer program they are being tested on. Our students have a tremendous advantage because our proprietary "Practice Exams" were designed to explicitly match the real state exam interface. It has the same look, features, and functionality so our students can practice using this program BEFORE they sit for the real deal.

In fact, this module is such an invaluable tool that even instructors at competitive schools encourage their students to purchase our randomly-generated practice exams.

Note: This is a legitimate practice exam and the student needs to set aside the appropriate amount of time to take a full and complete exam to get meaningful results.  For piracy protection reason users are restricted to five opening per module.
