Requirements & Information for the General Contractor Exam 2020
As of January 1st of 2020, the General Contractor's Test became more difficult than it already was.

This represents a shift in how many trade knowledge (non-lookup / closed-book) questions you are asked. This means, to the average test taker, it is time to hit the books and brush up on some key construction concepts. Below are some important articles that will really help.
