    This is what I ended up doing. Big pain in the butt it was. Went to Municipal, they sent me to city hall, then city hall sent me back to Municipal at which time I stated "Human Resources 15th floor". Best advice to anyone that wants the extra points.

    Go to the Municipal Building in front of City Hall (the one with the weird modern art thing in front). Tell the guard at the front "I need to see Human Resources on the 15th floor". Bring your CPR card, Your EMT card (or cert). And it should be done.

    Now I play the waiting game for the study guide, thanks a bunch BigGuyPhilly. I'm considering going the extra mile and paying 150 to test for my Proboard FF1, but It's on Oct 19, and I'm not sure if I'd get the results/card that says I passed in time for the Nov 16th test. Any tips at all for the WSI test? I've never taken one before, but I figure I shouldn't answer "Not sure" for any of them, and answer only with a few "Strongly" responses to not appear overly aggresive.

    Any chance they pull another class off this test? I know they're testing again next month but our list shouldn't be up until the spring and if I remember correctly they won't have a class of the 2013 list ready to put in to the academy until at least the middle of the summer.

    Only the shadow knows. Seriously, the only thing consistent with the people in the current city administration is that they are inconsistent.

    Study guide and practice tests are out under your completed application. Just a load of simple information, made myself flash cards of the first part tonight. Gonna continue until I got flashcards of the whole study guide.

    How long does it take until the test results come out ? Do they email them out as soon as they get them or is it like the military where their is a website to get the results before they announce them ?

    Check the previous Philly thread, IIRC it was 6-8 weeks.

    Just for a frame of reference for those of us who took the 2013 exam, about how many were hired off this list?

    I know this list is expired but can someone explain to me how they jumped down into the 1000's to pick up a non vet over all us?
