TN alarm test issues We hear the same thing, every week:
"The material from the State didn't help at all".
- or -
"The stuff the State sent me was only good for a few of the questions".
- or -
"I have failed the license test 3 times, and each time it was a different test".

Well, this is TRUE. And here's why-it-is-what-it-is.
The State is here to regulate you, NOT to educate you.

They provide you information on things that they can fine ($) you for.
They do NOT help you with the majority of the test.
It is an 'experienced-based' examination.

Most of the test is about knowledge you supposedly have from not only from
alarm work, but also from running a business and from being an employer.

The truth is: you do not know most of these things, causing most to fail.
