Getting Class B CDL, What topics are required studying?

I really want to study using the High Road Training Program (HRTP) because it goes section by section, and has quizzes to pass me on before moving forward. I need that extra help. So I went to the WI DOT manual link, and compared the glossary sections 1-3 with the topics on HRTP. This is what I found that is comparable. IF ANYONE CAN CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG, THANK YOU! Again this is for CLASS B test, my question is "what topics to study from the High Road Training Program free course, and what is not necessary to study."

MUST STUDY FOR CLASS B: 1) Rules & Regulations, 2) Driving Safely, 3) Transporting Cargo Safely, 5) Air Brakes, 10) Pre-Trip Inspection, 11) Driving Exam, 13) Weights and Balances, 14) Cargo Securement

DO NOT NEED TO STUDY FOR CLASS B: 4) Transports Passengers, 6) Combination Vehicles, 7) Doubles and Triples, 8) Tankers, 9) Hazardous Materials, 12) Log Book, 15) New York State Coil Endorsement

Getting Class B CDL, What topics are required studying?

I am starting the free "High Road Training Program" (HRTP) for my Class B CDL. (yes, I know everyone says just get your Class A. I still want to know the answer to this question.)

On the Home Page of the HRTP, it has a LOT of topics to study, and I want to know which ones are specific to "General Knowledge" and "Air Brakes," which I believe are the only two I need to test for in Wisconsin. I will be working for the county highway department and will be driving snow plows in the winter.

Below is the entire list of sections to study with HRTP. I've included all of them, as written, even though some are obvious that I don't need to study. Can someone please let me know? WHAT SECTIONS SHOULD I STUDY for the Class B? Thanks!

1. Rules & Regulations (permit) 2. Driving Safely (permit) 3. Transporting Cargo Safely (permit) 4. Transporting Passengers (endorsement) 5. Air Brakes (permit) 6. Combination Vehicles (permit) 7. Doubles & Triples (endorsement) 8. Tankers (endorsement) 9. Hazardous Materials (endorsement) 10. Pre-Trip Inspection (permit) 11. Driving Exam (permit) 12. Log Book (job duties) 13. Weight & Balance (job duties) 14. Cargo Securement (job duties) 15. New York State Coil Endorsement (endorsement)
