Start with the Driver's Manual

It is always a good idea to start by scanning the driver's manual. This will give you a quick overview of what you need to learn. Every chapter in the manual is there for a reason. Questions on your final DMV exam will be taken from all of these chapters. Some questions are, however, more likely to show than others.
