  1. it has marked some answers as incorrect with no correct answer shown and marked right answers as wrong

  2. this helped me pass my test i passed with a score of 94% so only 3 questions wrong all i need to do know is apply for my cscs card by phone

  3. The sample test was very helpful and helps to set expectations before the real test.

  4. The questions compared to other websites are more aligned with an actual CITB test and flow well without ambiguity.
