    As DI D. said; 30 questions, each from a different chapter in the book. Each question to have four multiple choice answers with only one being correct.

    Is the 1.5 a straight run right to one destination? Or is it you run to one point then back ?

    Damn, I just finished with the questions. I thought he just said 30 questions, didn't get the part where each one had to be from a different chapter. I had 2 questions for a couple of chapters.

    I wanted to pick your guys brain about a routine I've been doing. Skim through it or even try it and let me know how you find it. Are you guys doing stuff similar to this?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZnsLVArIt8
    Instead of ditching the weights altogether, the instructors at CPAT training were telling us to focus a lot on compound movements to get the most out of it. Squats, Lunges, Deadlifts, Bentover Barbell Rows, Military Press, Bench Press just to name a few. I also have designated days for calisthenics only, like pull-ups and push-ups and dips etc. Also kettlebells are really good. I also run and do the stairs 4-5 days a week each. I feel like videos like the one you posted are for people who are just getting into working out or are trying to lose weight only. Beginner stuff. Idk, that's just me. If you like stuff like that, insanity actually looks more challenging to the point where it will actually help you for the academy. I'm just going by what the instructors and ff friends of mine have told me. Just passing it along.

    When I went to the mentor meet at the rock, one of the instructors (forgot his name but I've seen him in a lot of YouTube videos) said to have two pairs of shoes and alternate them day. And if it rains, they're running so good to have a dry pair for the next day. That days also, he had asked some probies to stay after. Three of them stayed and spoke to us in front of the room. Somebody asked if there was one thing they wish they did more of before they got into the academy, all of them said they wished they read the probie manual more. Idk about any of you guys, but since I got 5+ months before the next academy! I'm gonna try to read this entire book a few times all the way through. Figured there's so much physical stuff to deal with, it would be embarrassing to be wasting too much time on the academic stuff (especially since I can actually avoid it).

    And don't forget to indicate the chapter, and the page number, from which you got each question from.

    There's not even 30 chapters. I did the same thing as you. 30 questions with the chapter and page number.

    Really? I wasn't even there and I know. Better yet I didn't even get a packet yet. I just find it crazy that not even a full week after the run and people don't know when the questions are due.

    Take it easy on him. Better to ask on here than to show up empty handed and get ripped a new one. There will be people who didn't ask and will show up unprepared, at least he's inquiring. And if you were there you would know there was a lot going on in that room and it was easy with the nerves to miss a few words

    Chill, dude. If you were there you'd probably be confused too because they just said that it was due on the first day, but some of us were trying to figure out if first day meant admin processing day or the actual day one of the academy.
