    I bought Barrons and McGraw hill, but I haven't been studying them because I know this test will be much different.

    I agree with not bogging down your brain but there is so much time between now and the test, any time spent thinking and studying would be good. There are tons of refresher-type grammar, memory and resaoning lessons available online. Dedicate 30-60 minutes per day to exercising your mind and you will be fine.

    I haven't started doing any sort of studying either. I figured I would pick it in Sept. Even though we have no idea what the test format will be, your brain is like any muscle you have. The more you exercise it the better off you are. At least that's what I'll tell myself when I'm trying to push through idiotic grammar exercises that most definitely won't be on the exam given all the nonsense over the last exam's reading level being "unnecessarily high".

    Yea once the test date draws near, hopefully we'll have a better idea of what to study and we can study that.

    Theres a ton on Google. You kind of have to sift through some garbage first but type into Google everything before your question mark and you should get some stuff. Theres no certain one that I use, I just kind of do them and click the next one

    this is for the guys that do not have a daddy, brother on the job or have been a volly for 10 years and think they know it all.

    for those worried about not getting the city credit anymore because of the strict rule changes or thinking you will not get on because you live outside of nyc i will tell you that the amount of nyc residents that will actually take the test, pass the background, the medical, the phsycological will not be that large. the 5 points help you will get on sooner but with a high score on the written and the physical you will be called. the **** will have to be weeded out first which will take time but you will get called if you are prepared and ready for it. the fdny is down like 800 guys and will be down more in the next few months.

    also guys worry too much about the physical and the cpat. they are not hard physically but you must know and have the proper technique and idea of what you are doing beforehand to blow through it. you will be provided with info on what each step of the physical is and what to do. if you can pass the physical then you will pass the cpat at the end of the academy.
    the big concern is your heart rate on the stepper. there are heart rate numbers that you must stay within to be considered for the job. the best way to prepare is to run with a heart monitor and to do stairs with this monitor. you have to train your mind and body to stay within your heart rtate limits while working out. the heart is a muscle and must be trained.

    after you pass everything you will go into the academy and they will run you hard and hit you with pushups and situps. then go to class for fire scince adn safety then go to learn the scba mask, then learn ropes then lunch then advance 2 1/2 fully charged hose. it is tough mentally and physically.

    at the gymn you should do a full body workout to prepare. fast and hard without medium weights. work you legs too. make sure you eat alot of carbs and protein for breakfast and for dinner and drink water mixed with gatorade when you are on the Rock. run in the cold, the heat and the rain. dont stand out and just do what your told and also pay attention the first time they show you something. psych yourself up to be yelled at and to be told you shoold go back to your old job. they will test you in all ways. they will be super hard this class because alot of unqulaified candiated will be trying to get this job.

    i am done. now get off the computer and set up your diet and workout sched.

    Thanks, I thought you meant there were like civil service test specific questions. I do need work on my grammar, I actually bought a book for it, it's hard to study when you know it probably won't be on the test.
    People on the 6019 thread listed some links from the company that made the test, so I have to go back and look through it for those.

    Default Question about Written and Physical

    Are these two parts of the test given in conjunction with one another? For example, January 3 you take the written and January 4 you take the physical? Or is the physical scheduled at a later date depending on your list number?

    Thanks!

    Can you even fathom the logistics of that???
    Say that 50,000 sign up and 40,000 actually showed up to write the test. And then 30,000 passed to take the physical agility. Yeah, can't really happen in a day.

    Rumors are flying how the written will be administered. Meanwhile, as long as we maintain fair, rank order hiring, each step will be scheduled based on your list number at later dates. How much later remains to be seen. IMO this is going to be a mess.

    So the answer is "physical will be scheduled at a later date"? That's all I'm looking for.

    So how extensive is the background for the FDNY. Would they even waste their time with someone out of state(west coast)?

    There is residency law that applies after you get hired. You'll also get extra points for being a city resident, but the city is fair across the board when it comes to hiring practices, and will process every application.
