    I'm still confused. When does the time start? If you were to watch he video only one or twice would you have more time for the questions?
    I'm pretty sure you will have the same amount of time to answer the Q's whether you watch the video once, or three times. I haven't take the test yet but my guess would be they're not going to penalize you for watching the video multiple times.

    Regarding the note taking: Do what works best for you is my suggestion.
    Remember, the method suggested at both tutorials is geared towards someone who has quite possibly never taken an exam before.

    I got this post from someone on the FDNY rant.


    There were no typos or grammatical errors that I can recall. There were a few questions that I thought were poorly worded but they didn't seem erroneous. People are probably reporting different #s of questions because it's split into many parts and you aren't allowed to bring/take anything with you so did portion 1 have 6 questions or 9? With nowhere to take notes about the exam it's more likely that people are miscounting the specific # of questions per section, or throwing in some of the practice questions or survey questions.

    The first 4 portions were a nonissue, however the personality test is anyone's guess.

    Took the test today in Brooklyn. My opinion, it's gonna come down to the personality section. Kinda throws ya for a loop. Again, just my opinion. Just show up, follow directions, do your best and see what happens. Good luck.

    I have already taken the test and you can watch the video up to 3 times. your time limit for the video sections depend on the length of each video and they add a minute or so to the total length of 3 views.

    If I'm not mistaken the Q is, if you have 5 minutes to answer the video Q's, and 9 minutes to watch for example a 3 minute video 3x, and you only watch the video once, do you get 6 minutes added on to your time to answer the Q's?

    The time does not overlap, as far as i could tell the time saved from watching the video was not added to answering the question. With that said you will have more than enough time to answer the questions. watch the videos at least 2 times as the questions are really easy if you do. using the provided training guide and basic notes taken you can easily answer the questions with time to spare. Even on the math questions you can take the time and double and triple check you work and answers and be fine.

    Just finished the exam a couple of hours ago. Good luck to all the guys here. Just take all the time given to you, and be patient, and you should have no problem.

    ohhhhh boy. Video section is the last one I have to review. Going to do that on Saturday. "Looking forward to it". Mike Kraft sounds like an evil name though.
