Publisher's Summary

This audiobook uses a flash card system to teach new and renewing drivers what they need to know in order to pass the CDL as well as be better drivers. Listeners can use this to study while driving or at home. The book was suggested by a long-distance driver, Nathan Huckaby, who needed an audiobook to help him refresh his memory for his latest renewal test. The tracks listed here describe the contents of this audiobook, including bonus features relating to equipment to carry, extra definitions, and common-sense rules. The audiobook was created by a CDL holder who found his license invaluable to get jobs, pitch in as a backup driver at his companies, and make traffic cops like him better when stopped.

incorrect answer for the question

the question is if you find yourself being tailgated what should you do? the narrator says to increase your following distance between you and the tailgater. that is incorrect. the correct response is to increase your following distance. this will allow you more time to respond to changing conditions in front of you.

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.

Almost perfect

It was good and informative but as a new cdl hopeful I've been told the most difficult part of the test is the pre trip inspection test. It would have been very helpful to me if there had a chapter dedicated to proper pre trip inspection procedures.

not a huge help

the book only help me on about a third of the questions. the book did not give me information verbatim from the CDL guide causing me to second-guess my answers. it was not precise and inaccurate at times

My review

Could've been better. Lacking info. I would also like to hear more experiences of what to expect as a commercial driver.

A little off putting

The short pauses are off putting, and make it hard to follow. not worth it.
