    I think every single class goes through the same thing...people drop, people get singled out and people suck at pt. same thing, different class.

    Despite it not having any real measure of the character of a person, there is no denying that if you get a 70 on this test, you have other issues. Honestly, this test was embarrassingly easy.

    This is a red lever, this is a red lever, this is a red lever..... what is this?

    A) Potato
    B) 1535
    C) The Louisiana purchase
    D) A red lever
    E) All of the above

    I don't know what you mean, that test was a brain buster! But yeah, I guess the point is that the test was so insanely easy that if you didn't get at least a 90 on it you probably shouldn't be trusted around heavy machinery.

    Haha I was just thinking the same thing.. You would literally had partial credits on ALL The personal questions to get a 70 lol ( if you aced the first 4 parts obviously). That is pretty embarrassing

    Yeah, I mean part 5 was truly insightful. Just what IS the perfect number of friends to stay in contact with from high school? Obviously its the same answer whether you are 19 or 34, or have since moved out of state.

    Some of those questions felt like they were for high schoolers. How many times have you been complimented at work. I work in a professional environment, no one says good job scout.

    I think everyone who studied the vulcans books knew that the key was try to impress though, atleast I did... I went in there not even worrying about the first four parts and said to my self no matter what kind of questions just try to "impress"... Those questions just threw me off and made me change my game plan though lol, definitely not what I was expecting

    Ya, I agree completely. The Vulcan's guide to the personality Q's was spot on. It was worth driving all over NYC to get in to one of those prep sessions lol

    The Vulcan class made all the difference, I had the booklet already and was studying that. But how they said to answer those questions was a little different than what the book said and it made all the difference.

    Now ask yourselves.....how DID the Vulcan's have such terrific insight into this BRAND NEW test format?!

    Huh...the inside scoop, must be all of that racism they were talking about......

    Anybody else laugh when they open this thread and read the first post? Works every time.

    "Hopefully a computer based test means we will get our scores back instantly."

    Not knocking the poster at all - nobody coulda known what a long trip this would be.

    Damn, I wish I had access to that booklet the vulcans had. I would have certainly aced the test. I was honest when answering the personality portion of the exam.

    Example : How many times a day are you complimented at work ? I answered "rarely" because I'm a cop in a bad neighborhood and no one compliments us.

    Nobody here has inside information. If a majority of the class is OC then it would almost definitely be at least beyond #500, but short of #1000.

    Hence the quotes, lol. I know there's no such thing but I've seen posts up here that are almost dead-on accurate to what actually happens. It could coincidence or sheer deduction but I like the peace of mind I get from seeing those posts. (Which is really sadistic if you think about it especially if it turns out to be false)

    I guess I don't feel as bad after all since I'm not the only one that went through this ... I nearly aced the first part with the hydra verta 900 .... The last part was what really put me out the hiring range ... I went to a HS in a different country I barely kept contact only through FB ... Complimented at work, from who? I pick up garbage at the middle of the night the most I get is drunks trying to jump in the truck or throw garbage with me ... It would've been great to answer those questions to impress but I also remember reading that it said be honest so I went with being honest which totally sucked lol ... Now I just get to sit tight for the next couple of years and see how far this list reaches.

    The best thing about the weekends away from the Probie School, is not the family time, nor the hot meals, nor the relaxation. It's the bathroom time, LOL.
