Study Material Information:

The class A General Engineering Manual briefly covers the major topics of the State exam including Concrete, Rough and Finish Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical, HVAC, and Excavation, Grading, and Paving. The manual also contains summaries from the California Building Code and National Electrical Code. The last section of the General Engineering Manual covers the Health and Safety orders.


Please be sure to study all of the practice exams. It is important to read and understand each question, and read every word of the explanations. It is necessary to learn the principles behind the question because the State’s questions may be worded differently.

Do not memorize the sample practice exam questions. This is a multiple-choice examination with four choices per question. Some questions require mathematical computation. Examination questions are written to provide only one BEST answer and are NOT written as trick questions.

There is no penalty for guessing. If you are unsure about a particular question, it is better to try to answer the question than to leave the question blank.

Ample time is provided to answer all examination questions, so be sure to read each question and its four choices completely and carefully before selecting the BEST possible answer to the question.
