    Story
    "A Lot of Fluff And Minimal Specifics"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, it was time well spent. The author is knowledgeable, however more specifics would be of assistance to my confidence in passing the NYS CDL examination.


    What was most disappointing about Deaver Brown’s story?

    The story doesn't seem to cover the 13 required chapters to be read by NYS CDL handbook. Since I haven't actually taken the test.


    What three words best describe Deaver Brown’s performance?

    Solid. Good. Necessary.


    Do you think Commercial Driver's License needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, after reviewing the 13 chapters of the NYS Commercial Driver's Manual. It would be very unlikely that an inexperienced commercial driver could pass the test without reading the manual. This book is good reinforcement but not acceptable as a stand alone tool.

    "Wrong answers in the study guide."
    What disappointed you about Commercial Driver's License?

    I would have given NO STARS if that was possible.

    Within the first few minutes of the practice questions I noticed an incorrect answer to one of the questions. I wanted to double check my Oklahoma CDL Manual to confirm, I could be wrong. But no, it was truly a wrong answer. I immediately turned off the audio book, I can't risk learning the WRONG answers when trying to study for this test. If there was one wrong answer there could be more.

    The wrong answer I noticed was to the question, "What is the best way to deal with a tailgater?" The answer this audio book gave was, "increase your distance between you and the tailgater."

    The right answer according to the Oklahoma CDL test is, "To safely handle a tailgater, increase your follow distance. Having more room in front of you will help you avoid sudden speed changes. It also makes it easier for the tailgater to get in front of you."

    "Speeding up to increase your distance between you and the tailgater is incorrect because speeding up in traffic will only cause you to apply your brakes harder to slow down. This could make the tailgater crash into the back of your vehicle."


    Would you ever listen to anything by Deaver Brown again?

    I didn't have a problem with the narrator, just the content.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Deaver Brown?

    n/a


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Commercial Driver's License?

    I'd double check my answers according to State CDL Knowledge tests instead of just relying on my own experience.


    Any additional comments?

    This could very well be the only wrong answer in the entire study guide, I didn't want to confuse myself during test preparation by possibly listening to wrong information. I caught this wrong answer, what if I didn't catch others and studying flawed information caused me to fail my CDL test. NO THANK YOU.

    "content good -- unable to download to cd"

    would have been easier had i been able to download to a cd to play at my leisure -- hindering my listening preference to my laptop severely limiting my learning experience and product convenience. Would not recommend your service in the future -- finally was able to download onto my ipod which gave me a little more flexibility of use. Using itunes to download onto cd is not as easy as it seems it needs to be purchased through their store.
