What to study for permit

I've been going through the High Road Training Program and it is very useful. When studying for just the permit, is it recommended to go through every section, or only areas of general knowledge and air brakes? Since those are the only two things you're tested on for the permit (so I'm told) should I focus all my attention there? Is there a point in studying other sections before I even have my permit?

Swift pay

I've read from some of you nice folks that recruiters can be deceiving and will say anything to get people in the door. I'm hoping someone can confirm what a Swift recruiter told me. He said starting pay is .36 CPM and you'll never go below that. When I asked him about this chart I saw, he said it's old and untrue. So, which is it?

Prime not returning calls

Good replies from all, thanks. Work history must be the reason. I do have some gaps in there, and I assumed that was the issue, I just figured they would tell me. I was unaware work history was such a big deal and also unaware that there's a legal reason behind them not giving me straight answers. I'll look around at other companies. Thanks everyone.

Prime not returning calls

Update: Recruiter still never returned my calls after several messages left for a full week. Different recruiter told me the same exact thing word for word as the other woman who told me they can't put me to work at this time. When I asked for more detail as to why they won't take me on, she immediately transferred me to a different recruiter, who also didn't answer the phone. Another message left. From the very first time I called, through submitting my application, to now, it's been nothing but vague answers and voicemails. Time to move on.

Prime not returning calls

I called Prime 3 weeks ago to ask general questions and the recruiter gave me her ext. #. She didn't seem very knowledgeable so I called again and someone else encouraged me to submit an application. I did that and heard nothing from Prime. A week later I called wondering what happened, and got someone else on the phone. She said they receive a ton of applications and can't hire everyone. She was quick to hang up and seemed irritated. Confused, I decided to call the original recruiter, but I've had to leave messages. Each time they haven't been returned. I'm totally baffled. I thought there was a serious shortage in truckers and Prime would do anything to get trainees in the door. I have no criminal history at all and a good driving record. Why wouldn't they hire me? Why does it seem like they're completely ignoring my requests for answers? I don't even know who to contact next or if I should even bother. I'm at a loss.
