Illinois Private Detective license test secret #1:

Understand that you must know the data needed to pass
every one of all issued different 75-question tests.

(so knowing only 100 questions is a waste of time!)

We see it every year or two!

Over and over, yet another guy who passes the license test
decides to offer 'test prep help' because he passed the test.
Sadly, even if he remembered every question that was on his test,
that doesn't cover the many other versions of the test.

Their intentions are good, but that's not enough.
