Experience in the trade is not enough to pass the test. You must take practice tests, which can only be found at a license exam school.

Yeah I recommend going to at least 3 different license exam schools so you get the different practice tests each one has to offer. Its money well spent as the test is hard it takes over 3 hours per section. They will teach you what it takes to be a Contractor in 6 weeks. Just schedule all 3 schools at once so you can test sooner with more confidence you will pass thanks to the practice exams which have all the same answers as the state exam.
