    So I gave DCAS a call to see if they could answer, the man I spoke to had no clue what was going on. Was giving incorrect info. I just said thanks and hung up, it wasn't going any where.

    Love how people who work at these agencies are so knowledgeable (sarcasm).

    I scheduled my exam review for the 12th of May so apparently they are holding these review sessions. Very nervous to see what I got wrong, if I did get any wrong.

    I'm actually very curious as to how they will conduct the review for the personality section, if they will at all.

    Is it mandatory that we go to an exam review, or is that just to determine what, if anything, we got wrong for next time?

    it is not mandatory that you go, but unless you got a perfect score it's going to be beneficial for you to go and try and up your score.

    Sorry fellas...haven't taken the exam yet so I'm a little confused as to what the review actually is? Not sure if they had one for 6019.

    I think they go over the answers and say if their are questions that enough people answered wrong and the majority answered that said question with same answer they'll reward you credit for it. I think it's something like that.

    going out on a limb and saying you're a woman. Fantastic way to introduce yourself to the thread if I am correct.

    You might want to get in contact with The United Women Firefighters Association. Pretty sure they can give you a better answer, good luck to you.

It is weird that they paid all this money to rent computers and halls to have the exams and the places are half full. I don't buy that half the people that signed up are skipping out now. Maybe a quarter when its all said and done.
    I took the test yesterday at studio square, just as you mentioned there were about 100 people there, also very diverse. Females, Male,, black, white, hispanic, asian, tall, short, fat, slim, all kinds of people. When I was leaving there was a whole new crew coming in, place was packed.

    they gave us a small 7 x 5 inch ziplock bag to put our personal belongings.. nothing is allowed in, not even pens or pencils!. I received a sheet for scheduling the exam review, they told me it will start May 11th..

    test itself is straight forward, not going into details. pretty easy if you study.

    Im pretty sure it was meant to be sarcastic. You'll find basically everyone on here has a sore spot for quotas of any kind.

    Just finished. I wouldn't necessarily describe it as "really easy" as I've seen/heard some people say. I'll go so far as to say it was trickier than 6019 in fact. Now I'm not saying this to make anyone nervous. Please don't be. That's the worst thing you can do to yourself. I'm just giving my honest assessment.

    And when people say "not really any surprises per se, but not what I was expecting".......I understand that statement now.

    I'm assuming you're not going to turn it down if so... Get hired on scores and merrits. Don't you worry about quotas. FDNY is fighting tooth-and-nail to avoid them and knowing your life depends on the competency of your partners, you should too.

    Is it safe to assume we can actually over-study?

    FDNY Exam Review Appointment
    05/11/2012
    12:00 PM - 3:45 PM

    ---------------------------------
    Identification
    Admission Ticket
    Admisssion Notice (<--copy and paste, not my typo)

    Note: Appropriate identification will be required when you check-in for your testing appointment. PSI can not allow you to test if you fail to bring any of the specified forms of identification or any documents required for testing listed above.
    --------------------------------------

    i think someone mentioned it before, how are we suppose to go to the review when psi took our admission notice when taking the exam, are we getting a new one sent in the mail? is there any way to print the original one?

    All speculation, I wouldn't put any stock in it. Nobody knows how the test will be graded. As for the "draft" comment, that was probably said so as to motivate test takers to do well on the exam so minorities can be better represented in the FDNY, which has been the Vulcan's MO this entire time.
