Passing The Illinois Residential Roofing Test. WTH

Just took the residential limited test for the first time and I have to say most the questions have nothing to do with shingled roofs. Out of 75 questions only 2 were about shingles and those were actually up for debate. One question was how many nails per shingle. Well I believe that is totally up to the manufacturer and the actual company warranting the shingls. What a joke. However I did pass the first time with a 77, btw I passed without the books so no need to buy them. Bunch of scare tactics on this site about needing to buy the books. Its not necessary . I will say the test is designed for one to fail. The questions were very tricky. Anyone that needs help passing shoot me an email . I will help anyone out that needs it. The test is completely unfair for the residential roofer.
