What The Heck Is Question #33

I've finally started the High Road Online CDL Training Program. I love it and am learning a lot.

I feel stupid asking this question but...I've been getting a message that states, "The reason we're doing a review is because you are 1 for 5 on question #33." Now for the ignorant question. What is the question being asked on question #33? I'm making flash cards of areas where I am struggling and want to make sure to make one up for this.

Thanks for the help, Colin K.

CDL:

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.

Colin, each question gives you a link to where you can find the answer. Click on those links after reading the question slowly and carefully. It's not cheating, it's actually the way the program is designed to help you retain the information. Usually when someone is repeatedly missing a question it is because they are misreading the question.

Often times the question may be worded trickily so that it is asked in the negative tense. This is done to make sure you are really paying attention to what you are reading, much like the professional driver has to do with signs when he is navigating a big city like Chicago.

Brett will look at this and let you know which question that is as soon as he gets a chance.

Thank you, Old School and thank you in advance, Brett.

As I'm going through this, I am trying to figure out the answer first. Then I click the helpful link to see if I was right. If I'm wrong, I'm reading the information provided by the link and trying to absorb it. I do find that I am reading some questions too quickly today. I'm going to take a bit of a break and come back to this in a bit.

This is an awesome training program! I originally started reading the California CDL book. It was slow going and there was really no way to test myself to see what information I was absorbing correctly. The system here is so much better!

Thanks again, Colin K.

Colin, after you're done with a quiz it will show you the results. If you'll click on any red buttons that say "Incorrect" it will show you the question with the correct answer.

You have to go over the corrections to know which ones you got wrong and what the correct answer is. You missed the same question 4 out of 5 times and you don't even know which question you keep missing. You're not learning anything that way, you know what I mean?

So every test you take, make sure you review any questions you've missed. You're almost certainly going to see them again on the very next page as a review. Once you get a question correct a couple of times you'll have that one down and you won't see it anymore.

I'm making flash cards of areas where I am struggling and want to make sure to make one up for this.

There's no need to do that. Our system is already doing that for you. After each quiz it recalculates your entire score from the beginning and creates a set of high priority questions that you would benefit from seeing again. If you're missing any questions you'll see them again on the next page. The questions you're struggling with the most will be reviewed the most.

So just work your way through the system one page at a time and the system will make sure your weak areas are being reinforced.

Thank you, Brett. Just so you know, I'm already clicking on all the red/missed questions to see what question I missed and, more importantly, learning what the correct answer is. I'd be a fool not to. I also understand about why the review questions come up and check them as well, again going over the questions that I miss.

With all due respect, making flashcards is necessary for ME. I learn by not only writing the question down but by writing the correct answer. It reinforces it in my mind and helps me to remember the answer better. I'm not doing a ton of them but I am doing some for the questions that I keep seeing on the review. I keep them with me and review them when I'm eating or have a few minutes to spare while I'm out in the real world.

Thanks again, Colin K.
