    I think it's easier than at the rock. I also thought my heart was gonna fly thru my chest with all the adrenaline.

    Honestly it didn't feel too much different, slightly easier IMO, only took 4 seconds off my best rock time.

    I agree ahaha my heart was blumpin on the stair master ! still finished with 2 and a half mins to spare.. the rock was less pressure I think but at DCAS it wasnt like it was hard just your more nervous cause it counts.

    Wondering what everyones opinion of the training videos that were posted on the FDNY website. I feel both are definitely manageable but challenging. Sore the next day but not too bad. I have a feeling these are watered down versions of what to expect at the Rock. It was a wake up for me because I have definitely been sleeping on the lunges. My hamstrings were the sorest part of my body. I feel the one with the 10 lb weights was more difficult then the strictly bodyweight workout. Thoughts?

    Also spoke to my investigator this morning to see if she needed any paperwork, she said she needed nothing at this time and files were sent up to be reviewed. sitting 17xx.

    I read somewhere that they use the 5th digit, rather than the traditional 6th (last 4). I can't find where I read it though. Pretty sure it was on DCAS somewhere.

    Do the proctors do a good job of guiding you through the course, like around the cones and what not ?

    Did anyone see someone get DQ'ed ... and for what ?

    This is NYPD, but the pension system applies to firefighters as well. Such nonsense. Tired of red tape hurting people's livelihoods.

    They do the best they can do without holding your hands. All the proctors were very pleasant and wanted to see everyone succeed. They will tell you blue is the course to course marker and red is for each of the events. so to answer your question, yes they will point at the line and direction and off you go.

    The one with the dumbbells is certainly more challenging. Particularly the part with the "T-pushups", as I mentioned earlier. Those things are hell, and he does a ton of em. I also got my hands on that sand hose thing that they used at the PT session. It's not used on either video, so I'm going off memory. Would love if they had sample session online with it. But I'm grateful as it is with what they're doing for us in general.

    Are you immediately going for at least a 2.5 mile run outside upon finishing the workouts with no real break? If not, do that. Been switching between doing that or jogging to the track and then doing sprints.

    Also at the Rock, the day's activities can be draining also, fun but draining sometimes. So PT, evolutions, and punishments do wear on you.

    In an instance like this test, where many shared the same score and are separated by SS#, you can't be denied the chance because of that SS#. In other words, if they hire 1 person with a 99, they have to offer the job to all who scored a 99.

    That doesn't say that all with the same mark have to be offered the job. They could make one person with a 99 and the rest could be left on it, if the four year term expires.

    "(b) Appointments and promotions then may be made by the selection of any such eligible whose final examination rating is equal to or higher than the final examination rating of the third highest standing eligible qualified and willing to accept appointment or promotion."
    This is an explanation of the one in three civil service rule. Notice it says "certification for appointment", not appointment.

    What's your number? If it's later on, maybe that answers which # they use. Mine is 8 or 5, so harder to judge.

    Those t-pushups definitely are the worst part of that video. Where'd you find that hose?
    I am immediately doing the run right after. Been keeping it at 3miles for now on days I do both and track work on the days in between to work on speed with one day of just an all out 1.5m and a 1.5m recovery.
    My big problem right now is my shoulders. That's where my endurance falters. Every other exercise and run are all pretty routine but the HIIT style pushups combined with push presses are the current bane of my existence.

    So finalizing our interpretations of that SS# rule they have on dcas, it should be the first 4 digits of SS that determines your position?
