Remember back when you were in school and you could just wing it? You would just walk into exam day and take the test without any stress whatsoever. Your grade would come back and you would either ace it or fail, but you didn’t really concern yourself with the score. Now, though, things have changed. You have a job to think about, so you want to make sure that you pass when you take a test. You can do that by going through the 2017 SD CDL manual before your exam. The test questions are based on the information inside of this handbook. If you study the handbook before the exam, you will be sure to pass the test.

Going Through the Handbook

It’s easy for your mind to wander when you go through the handbook. You might think about what you want to do later in the evening or a funny movie you watched the evening before. That is perfectly normal. Don’t let your wandering mind get the best of you, however. Take out a pencil and paper and take notes as you go through the manual. That is the best way to remember all that you read. Then, you can go back through the notes later when you need to study for your SD CDL test. You can find out if you need to put some extra time into studying for your test. You might need to spend a few more minutes on a certain topic before you drive to the DMV to sit for your test. Good luck, and see you on the road soon!
