    LOL, Yeah exactly, drafts went out of style with powdered wigs.

    There are so many people nowadays wanting to serve in the military that a draft is extremely unlikely, nor is it even necessary.

    After you take the test you go on the PSI website and you put the potential time frame you would be able to go to the review and it gives you a run down of the dates and you can pick.

    I mean the tutorial classes pre-test, not the protest/review after the exam. I believe on SI they are holding them at P.S. 54 but I can't find that any where on the web

    Not just that, it would be political suicide for most politicians. But I had to laugh at that statement. I gotta give the Vulcans credit, not only do they have inside information on the FDNY exam but now they have the inside track on a potential draft lol. They got their hands in everything lol.

    The dates when they will call you should have been e-mailed to you a few weeks ago. And they will call you and give you a run down of the dates and locations.

    Oh yeah, the all knowing Vulcan society. Next thing you know they will start predicting the day the world will end, and when unicorns will roam the streets of Manhattan.

    Anyone with Don McNea NY book?

    Need input on Reading Comprehension Question #73 (pg. 89), how is answer "c" wrong and answer "a" right? Look at rule #6 of the seven rules for relay pumping from the text, answer "c" is pretty much verbatim.

    Am I missing something here, or is the book wrong?

    Also Question #91, answer "c" is technically correct, just because it doesn't list all the symptoms as in included in the last paragraph, it lists most of them, which in my opinion doesn't make it wrong. The book is saying that answer "d" would be correct (none of the above).

    Same thing with Question #101, how is answer "a" correct? I believe it should be answer "c." Questions clearly states fire fighters were ordered to evacuate and leave all equipment, making it a emergency evacuation.

    The reading comprehension is a little poorly worded if you ask me.

    Any thoughts guys?

    It's very hard to recall after all this time, but I'd say it was between a half a point to a point. For me at least. Maybe someone else had a different experience.

    After I got to question 73, I knew I'd be asking for a refund of my money.

    I actually e-mailed them because I wanted a elaborate explanation yet in hopes that I was wrong, nothing so far.

    Regarding to the Don McNea book, AGAIN, honestly, for anyone who has went through the entire book, do they feel disappointed or confused? I feel it is very poorly written.

    I was definitely surprised to see the sloppy mistakes they made, since they are one of the most highly regarded names in the business. What specifically did you have problems with?

    Don Mcnea has a no questions asked money back policy. If you are not satisfied then get your $$ back. I emailed them 2 times about something and never got a response BUT they did return my phone call when I left a message both times. try calling them

    Are you entitled to residency points if your home of record is not NY state, but were on active duty during the requested time and moved directly to the city upon honorable discharge? Thanks.

    That's why I rescheduled by test for one of the last possible days, would rather more time to prepare and less for post-test second guessing

    I can't wait for everyone to take the exam so I can come on this forum and throw a fit.
