    If Texas uses Prometric, Inc. for their testing this link should help.

    California Test

    Has anyone out there taken the test for California?

    Any input on what to expect as far as questions would be helpfull. I know I will be reading a bunch to prepare, but want to make sure I am reading the right stuff.

    ps. Already read "Good to Great", "The E-myth" and "The E-Myth Manager"

    Thanks!
