    Sorry James, I know that's not a good feeling. Did you call Jeff Wilson to get your status?

    I had emailed him yesterday and he responded to the email first thing this morning. It is definitely a bummer but I will keep on trying.

    Sorry James. It sucks after getting so close and going through all that testing, but I know you'll keep at it.

    Take care bro.

    So if you name is passed over twice you are out? What happens if they do academies next year??

    I feel for you... everything happens for a reason, never ever give up.

    Thanks. Maybe we'll cross paths testing this next time around. I'll be putting my name in the hat on Nov 18th along with you.

    Take care

    I've heard this from other sources too, but I'm not really sure what the reasoning behind it is though. As I understand it they are removed from the list after their 2nd time through and then everyone else after them gets bumped up. They always test for way more than they need, so there will be people that have gone through all the testing and are just waiting to be certified to the manager of safety for another academy if there is one.

    Can anyone recommend a civil service exam study guide? Other than Capt. Bob - no offense. I already have all that stuff.

    I've used Barron's and Norman Hall in the past. You won't see everything they have in there on the DFD exam, but it's some good practice for the main stuff. Norman Hall seems to be more in line with DFD's exam if I had to pick one. Barron's in my opinion is more what you'd see on an east coast type of test, but would still be helpful for the main areas of focus.

    Edit: Meh, I take that back. I've used both for different areas after looking back through their table of contents. Each has something to offer even if it's just more practice tests. Norman Hall has double the reviews and a better score though on amazon.

    Good luck!

    Are they planning on doing a class with Aurora FD? I know Aurora is starting an academy at the end of January with 10(+) non lateral plus laterals. I know in the past they have done joint academies.

    The Nov. 18th class would probably be done by then and I don't know if the anticipated Spring '14 DFD academy would be in place right on the tails of the Nov class. Doesn't seem likely, but that's pure speculation on my part.

    Why do you ask?
