According to the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors, "The 'trade' examinations are based upon general working knowledge of the field in which you wish to be licensed." In their study guide, the Board states that the reference materials listed "may NOT necessarily cover all information needed to pass the exam." The study guide also states that "the reference list contains a representative sample of materials that are available which contain information relevant to the examination."
