Some useful info for State Exam preparation is this Cal Trans LS/LSIT Review Course, circa 1993. Though the material was prepared almost 20 years ago, much of it should still be considered relevant. Note that, as stated continually throughout the lecture videos, the information contained here should SUPPLEMENT your studies and not be your only source of preparation.

Workbook TOC is a CalTrans web page containing workbook chapters in PDF. If you have any trouble with the video links on the TOC page, I am providing the following list of chapters with links to where videos can be downloaded. John Hickok, 01/23/2011
