    Default FDNY Exam 2000

    So it's finally here.

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/html/co...nt_index.shtml


    Hopefully a computer based test means we will get our scores back instantly.

    Already got an email from a company offering test prep services, according to them:


    The exam application period for NYC Firefighter has now opened. It will be a computer based test given in two different locations one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn. They will assign you a date to appear sometime between January 3, 2012and February 3, 2012.

    That would make a whole lot of sense, but don't count on it:



    EXAMINATION RESULTS: You will be notified by mail of your test results. If you pass the CBT and the physical ability test and meet all requirements and conditions, you will be considered for appointment when your name is reached on the eligible list. Use of the exam in hiring is subject to approval by the Court in United States v. City of New York, 07- cv2067. The Court will decide whether to approve the exam following its administration to the applicants.

    Just read that. I'm not sure why we don't find out on the spot, that's how the 5 other computer based tests I took worked. This isn't all bad though, your nerves are even higher when you know you're finding out right there how you did.

    Edit: Could be with the month long testing window they don't want people having any type of answers to the test Q's.

    Quick question

    Honestly, what are the chances of someone getting on the FDNY (if hiring goes as its supposed to) without ANY preference points? What kind of score would said person need to get on this test to have a shot?

    100, which is what you should be aiming for anyway

    So this means we'll get a $30 refund once the test results are thrown out.....right? I mean, this is of course after I get the refund of the $130 I'm out for the whole process of the last test.

    Can't wait to get f***** again fellas. Let me get back to my Garaufis voodoo doll.......

    Im from MI, would love to work for fdny... But Im guessing without pref. Points, 100 is minimum to even be considered.... Since there will be guys scoring 105.. 110, from their pref. Points included.

    did 6019's NOE specifically say the Physical Exam was the CPAT? Was the fee for that also $25? It is unusual that the NOE for 2000 doesn't say "CPAT", and in the past I've paid a lot more for my CPAT than $25.

    list# 886? How many people did they actually hire? I've been through a few processes already and I find it hard to believe that that many people had their stuff together..in 4 years. I would have thought that the list number reached would be in the 3-4000s..

    Some where in the 275 ball park were hired. There was only 1 class to go through probie school. It took them through list 886 to get that # for the class. I don't think we'll be seeing these lists go in to the 4000s anymore. Even if the dept hires at a steady pace for 4 years it doesn't look like they'll be putting in the 600 or so a year they were from 2002-2007.

    Imagine if your list # was 887. I don't know how that guy hasn't gone insane over the last 3 years.

    Oooooohhhh! Duh!
    It's the Exam Number. Helps to click on the link.

    All that said:
    Never has it been required from any other agency, department or city that I tested with (and it's been a few) that I had to fill in anything based on race, sex or orientation. This has always been "voluntary information".

    Talk to your lawyers.

    Hey man, thanks for the info..I was trying to think to myself, on the 6019 that the FD was like 600 or so under headcount, it would only make sense to try to keep the numbers close since its cheaper to not have to pay overtime to everyone, and if it took 886 for a class of 300? that means that if this list is active for 4 years and they do 300 a year that is about 3000 on the list give or take right? and hopefully, once Bloomburg gets voted out of office the new mayor will have a better grasp that you can't sacrifice public safety.

    On a different note..does anyone know about how the veterans/disabled points work? the announcement doesn't say anything about having to live in the NYC area, just that you have to meet the criteria set by the state of new york..right? or did I totally read that wrong, because if I remember correctly, I clicked on the link from the 6019 exam and the scores posted some with vet status did not have residency...

    I am in the same boat as Big Griff. The way the military points page was written in said to receive military points you had to be a residence of NY state at the time of appointment. But what appointment? The 2000 list appointment or the appointment to the job? Doesn't sound like if you are an out of state resident you will get military points. Anyone have any experience with this?

    I called DCAS and got transfered to the FDNY personel dept..and the man who answered, who wasn't helpful at all, defined "appointment" as starting the academy..now, considering that myself being from out of state would have to live not only in NYS, but in NYC or 1 of the surrounding counties at the time of "appointment" he said that to follow it as it is written..and since the deffienition of "appointment" is the start of the academy in order for me to even start the job I would have to comply. Technicalities..but thats what I got. If you called, im sure you may get something different...also like I said earlier, I saw the scores from 6019 and some of those that claimed veteran/disabled veteran points did not claim residency status but if it says that then thats how I'm taking it....I checked box for "disabled Veteran" because if The points get me " appointed" I'll be living in the city..If the points don't get me hired then I guess it really dosn't matter..ya know?

    In reading the other FDNY thread, I had no idea they were having race issues and lawsuits with their exam process, too. Same thing's been going on here in Chicago the past 15 years on and off and that got dealt a terrible ruling a month or two back. Guess you can't escape it no matter where you go.

    Thanks Mom.

    WHAT I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND.... *pause* is...

    HISTORICALLY, what is the lowest possible score one can get and still have a chance at getting hired? 99, 98, 97? That is if, someone takes the test who doesn't have any preference and misses only one question, do they stand a chance? Or is even scoring 100 not enough.


    Catch my drift?

    Question? I know usually civil service exams are pretty easy and common sense, but does anyone know when they would come out with a study guide or some sort? I just would like to have an idea of what would be on the exam just in case i need to brush up on some stuff. Also, I know on the previous exams they would hold sessions like tutorials prepping you for the exam, I wonder if they are doing that for this exam?
