FG & PG Exam Study Help and Application Experience Questions

FG & PG Exam Study Help and Application Experience Questions

FG & PG Exam Study Help and Application Experience Questions

I didn't see any recent threads, so thought I'd start a new one. I got my masters in hydrogeology in 2013, and haven't needed to get a PG license, due to the states I've lived in and industry I've worked in. Now I want to move to Florida and need to get my license.

I've tried searching the internet as much as possible, and it seems like this test is a nightmare to study for, and there aren't a lot of study guide options. There are the regreview manuals/sample questions/flash cards - this seems to be the only reliable thing to study, but is not always helpful, as it doesn't distinguish FG from PG questions, and may not represent what's on the test. On Amazon, there's one guide and one set of flash cards from the same publisher, which do not have stellar reviews.

There's this website called georev that has "asbog pretesting" - there's just a page of sample questions and a link to paypal - it doesn't look like a legit site. I can't find any reviews of the site or anyone who's used them.

I saw someone used a GRE Geology test prep book (not sure which one).

What else? For those who have passed, what would have been the best things to use? I have a full-tiime job, and am getting ready to move, so can't just dive into every random geology textbook.

Also, can you initially get licensed in any state? The state I currently live in doesn't issue licenses or care about this certification. I see that some states count your masters degree toward experience and some don't, so why I'm asking.

Thanks for your help!
