    7 tests. 3 months. Nothing but net. Ballast was my go-to. Review by Customer
    Passed all 7 tests in 3 months. Used this book as my foundation and studied 4 hrs per day after work for 2 weeks per test based on Funkaar Studios recommendation. Make sure you get the second edition. The book says you need min. 40 hrs. of study per test and that worked out about right for me plus extra on weekends. And a little more for SS and BS. You do need to study from more than one info source, but this is a great book to rely on. (Posted on 9/16/2015)
