    Just saw that my government jobs.com says I'm scheduled on the 29th at 1330. No idea where I'm supposed to take the thing though.

    There seems to be a lot of test times this time around.. must be a huge amount of applicants.

    Still nothin for me. I called and the lady said it could take up to the 12th to review everyone's app. My transcripts got there one like the 29th so I'm sure im at the bottom of the stack.

    Now my status changed to "Transcript/dd-214 reviewed. Notices sent by 3/12/12". Then on the right under schedule, it says "4/2/12. 1pm central time". Is that my test date?

    My husband and I are both hoping to take the test, & we are driving from El Paso. He has already gotten his test date but I have not yet (he did his app first, so I'm still hoping that I will get one!) - does anyone know (IF I get a test date) whether they would let us change it so we both test on the same day?

    And with the number of applicants, I can almost guarantee you're at their mercy.

    Does any one know what type of questions will be asked on the written exam? I studied alot for the Carrollton test I took and it seemed to be more about memorizing maps than anything else which I was not expecting and little to know math at all.

    From this page: http://www.dallasfirerescue.com/details.htm

    The written Civil Service Exam (2.5 hours) covers basic math skills, reading comprehension, ability to read and interpret maps/Mapsco, spelling, mechanical aptitude, and attention to detail.

    Be sure when you turn your transcript in you have some sort of tracking number to go along with it. I just found out mine never made it and I didn't have a tracking number or anything to prove I sent it in so I'm not eligible to sit in for the test. Good luck to all of you.
