Finding this California CDL practice test to be too hard?  We suggest that you start with reading the official California DMV CDL handbook, the manual the real DMV written test is based upon.  The book is quite extensive and may seem like an overkill, but it does provide you with the most comprehensive overview of things that will be on your general knowledge test and helps you build a foundation you can expand upon with the help of this 2018 California CDL DMV practice test.  Don't try and read the CDL handbook in one go, just break it up into chapters and read one chapter a day, this will help you absorb the information without feeling overloaded and over-stressed.
