    this question is for anybody who hasnt taken the test. I have been working with the don mcnea/ vulcan book and i was just wondering if you put "strongly disagrre" and the correct answer is "disagree is that question wrong or is it partial? also i was thinking why wouldnt someone put "strongly"?

    again i dont want people who took the exam getting mad at me for asking this, so this is for the remaining people out there. because this thread is for exam 2000 and although most people have taken it some havent, i took 6019 and have been on these forums for years and know and admire the hard work you are all putiing into getting this job

    I've been going "strongly" on everything. From what I understand it is possible to receive partial credit for these questions so I guess it is possible going disagree vs strongly disagree could be partial credit (or vice versa).

    Wish I had that advice before I took the exam. This is why the exam should have been on one day.

    Clearly, no where. My point is that people still continue to ask questions who haven't taken the exam yet.

    He asked the Q to people who haven't tested yet, I haven't tested and I answered him. Who knows if what I said is right or wrong. You didn't discuss the exam with anyone before the exam period opened?

    The strongly agree disagree questions, it really depends on the question. Even if you prepare for the personality section it's still going to throw you off. Any prep for the personality section isn't going to help prepare you or give you an edge as much as you think. Even after the exam you will be wondering about it. The best thing to do is just take the exam and hope for the best.

    I for one am totally against this. First we let them file after the application deadline even though the application period was open for damn near 2 months. Dakota Meyer even refused to let them give him an extension because he felt it wasn't the right thing to do, but we're gonna give some lazy bastards that opportunity? Now there gonna miss the exam entirely and let them reschedule after the fact. There making a joke out those of us who are actually taking this process seriously and I'm really getting fed up at this point.

    Smoky, I totally agree with you from a standpoint of principles, but frankly I'm sick of principles after 5 years of 6019 BS. I'm all about expedience right now. If 2 more weeks of bending over backwards until the testing period is over makes it one less hurdle the city needs to get over to actually hire from this list, then bring it on. If an applicant was so unconcerned about the test to not even show up or reschedule, I'm not at all concerned about their score or list number being better than mine.

    I got the call for the review session. They are recording all the calls and asking a bunch of Q's to cover their ***. Seems like the city is doing as much as they can to keep themselves covered for the eventual review of the process. The woman said Lt's and Capt's run the classes, if that's so the city must be paying through the roof in OT for just these classes.

    Just took the test, I don't like it wtf. How are they gonna grade this? You know what don't answer that. But I can't wait until this testing period is over so that we can discuss this. Now I also will say that I'm in the post test anxiety. Good luck all you guys we will all need it.

    My friend took the test today, basically said the same we have been saying about it. He described it as the type of test you don't really study for. He said halfway through the personality section he got fed up with type of questions they were asking.

    For some reason those Q's didn't bother me at all. But a different section got to me just a little bit. I can see that people can really trip up on these sections because of certain reasons. Its fair to say that I don't think everyone will get 100 plus points unless they have all the extra points combined. If you do score 100 then you will get 5 points because it's 5 percent that gets added on. Anything less that 100 won't get the exact 5 points. Remember it's only 5 percent of the highest grade achieved.

    "Points equivalent to five percent of the maximum possible final exam score will be added to the final exam score of those candidates who qualify for the New York City Residency Credit."


    It's not 5 percent of your score, or of the highest score that anyone got. It's 5 percent of the maximum highest score you can technically get. So I guess theoretically, depending on how this will be graded, more than 5 points are possible. That's the way I read it at least.

    Ok maybe your right, I must of misunderstood. I guess to much reading comp for the day. But my opinion is that this exam will be graded on a double score Like 100/100. I believe that anything from the vids to comp Q's will be graded on one side and the personality Q's will be graded on another side separate from the rest of the exam. Maybe this will avoid a whole bunch of tiebreakers. But of course this is just my opinion And way of thinking.

    Had my review yesterday. It was given by 1 LT and 4 FF. The class was supposed to start at 5 but it started at 6. The LT didnt say a word. He sat off to the side. The FF's read the tutorial word for word. They seemed like they didnt want to be there but to their credit, their uniforms were extremely neat. Maybe they each had a long day...

    Don't get nervous. Anxiety will kill you. Just be easy and trust that you've studied enough. Don't get so bogged down with the idea of the test that you miss really easy points. You got this

    every time you need a stress relief, punch in "FDNY" in a twitter search and see what other people are saying about the exam. There's usually at least 10 tweets that give me a good laugh, every time.

    Default phone call

    I recently received a phone call asking me why I missed the exam. I explained that I chose not to pursue this opportunity and my reasons for it. The rep just tried to convince me to take the exam. It was all recorded. Very odd.
