    Thank you!!! I was wondering why I had seen almost all of the questions that were in there. I couldn't remember if it had been from a study guide or tests in other cities. I expect to see a lot of 100s and higher on this test for sure

    Here it is from the study guide:
    6. Based on the information given in the
    paragraph, if the woman were having a
    problem, it would most likely be
    ________.
    a) drugs
    b) problems with bike riding
    c) problems with her children
    d) job stress
    e) domestic violence

    6. e
    In sample question 6, the
    woman does not give a credible explanation
    of her injuries and also appears nervous,
    potentially suggesting domestic violence.

    Yeah, I think the personality portion will be the ultimate deciding factor for this test

    LOL damn...I might be screwed then
    I didn't sign that confidentiality page
    didn't even read it
    I skipped it and went straight to the test
    Figured I'd come back to it at the end
    and forgot about it
    And I did so well on the test too...

    Oh well...maybe next time...

    I have a feeling a lot of people didn't sign it, as they did not say anything about it in the oral directions

    I really doubt they even look at the test booklet, and instead just scan the scantrons and match them with the applicant names.

    There wasn't a single objective question that I didn't know the answer to, no guesses, nada. The psychological/personality section seemed pretty straight forward as well...

    It's just that according to the Fire School packet I ordered, testing companies are using a new test trend where you should use agree/disagree mostly and only rarely use strongly agree/strongly disagree. I think that could possibly get some people

    Xoch- which study prep are you referring too?

    According to Don McNea's Fire School prep it states to always use "strongly" agree/disagree.

    Curious to hear more feedback on this subject.

    Thanks

    I used Don McNea's prep book as well as an Arco book that mentioned personality questions. Both did say use "strongly." That was in 2006-2007. I'd go with the more recent information though.

    Has Don McNea's Fire Prep been revised throughout the years?

    I've ordered the prep within the last year.

    I was strongly agree/disagree on all but two, fwiw.

    I do believe the 26th is correct. I, too, am anxious to get my score

    I'm not taking Garland, but am planning on taking Plano (unless I get the call from Dallas). Gotta finish memorizing info and whatnot.

    Isaiah 43:1-2

    1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
    he who created you, Jacob,
    he who formed you, Israel:
    “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
    2 When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
    and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
    When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
