Another Prime Candidate

The CR England recruiter I was talking to called me today with a $5K sign on bonus offer, but I turned it down because I heard more bad things about CR England and lots and lots of good about Prime Inc. I was going to go with England at first but Prime seems to be the logical choice.

A couple of them actually. Here is one

Bold answer is correct and what is correct. Italicized is what it says is correct bit is in fact wrong.

"As tires get hot, air pressure rises, increasing the likelihood of a tire blowout. When encountering a hot tire, you should never do the following:

Wait for the tire to cool down All of these can be done to reduce the risk of a tire blowout from overheating Pour cold water on the tire Let air out of the tire until the pressure returns to normal"

Quote From The CDL Manual:

Check the tire mounting and air pressure. Inspect the tires every two hours or every 100 miles when driving in very hot weather. Air pressure increases with temperature. Do not let air out or the pressure will be too low when the tires cool off. If a tire is too hot to touch, remain stopped until the tire cools off. Otherwise the tire may blow out or catch fire. A burning tire should be cooled with water. TruckingTruth's Advice:

Be extra vigilant about your tires while driving through deserts or in very hot weather. Tires can get extremely hot resulting in blowouts or tire fires. Tire debris on the roadway becomes much more common during the hot summer months.

Sometimes I will choose the correct answer on a question, and it tells me I am wrong, but when I read the excerpt from the handbook, it turns out I was correct. I have to purposely choose the wrong answer to keep my score up. I got halted so I had to start over so I could press on.

Anybody else have problems?

Are the questions asked in the review sections similar to the written test I will be taking? I'm assuming so, but you know the saying about that...
