    I'm heading out tomorrow morning for the CPAT practice. It will be my first go around so we will see how it goes. I've heard mixed opinions on the level of difficulty involved. No doubt it will be challenging.

    I am confused.

    I checked my application on the Gov't job site and it says that my name is on the eligible list. I pressumed that this meant I had passed the civil exam. However I called the recruiting office yesterday and they said that my application saying this does not mean I have passed the civil exam nessecarrly. Then I received a e-mail this morning with the required forms to move further along in the process. but the e-mail is pretty generic and does not say much.

    How do they inform us if we passed or not? The e-mail I received does not say one way or another. So I am not sure if this was sent to everyone or just those that passed the exam.

    Please help. I am much too excited to have to wait till Monday.

    Do you guys think if I have a valid CPAT card here in CA, I can save myself a trip to TX? Trying to save a little money over here.

    The question was asked before our test and they said you must take their CPAT.

    @ blakerollins

    The paper we got at the end of the exam said we would need to submit all the forms and phs by the 20th. And that we would receive our exam results in approx 2 weeks. So in short u will find out after u submit the teadious paperwork.

    If there is one universal consensus beatween the friends I have spoken with in regards to the hiring process, it's how drawn out it can be. Which is a bummer for the recruits lol. Stay positive and keep working through all the phases. On a similar note, if you haven't been or had the opportunity to partake in CPAT mentoring, I highly recommend it. Not as easy as I anticipated.

    Has anyone taken the accuplacer before? I was curious as to the level of difficulty in comparison to the civil service exam. More specifically, in regards to the math section.

    Went through all of Dallas's process last year. Didn't take the job for a variety of reasons, but Dallas has a great system in place. The AccuPlacer is a basic math/english test. Check on-line for tutorials and you should do fine. To those who think the process is slow, it is much faster then most. Good luck to all.

    @ dctalk533

    They said it would be approx 2 weeks from ur test date and you would be notified by mail or email (which ever you selected).

    I does suck to have to fill out all the paperwork before you know if you even passed, but hey, its a weed out i guess.

    Anyone going to the cpat workout tomo? Ill be there.

    @ firebing

    Thanks. I do recall the hr representative saying results should take two weeks. The puzzling issue is that my status was changed to "placed on eligible list". I'm sure those who are responding to these posts have the same status as I do. Questions is, why would my status change if I didn't pass the written exam. I don't want to spend money on mailing out my transcripts w/o knowing my official status. Again, thanks!

    Anyone receive written results yet? I'd think we would at least get them by tomorrow. But if it takes two weeks from test date, it might be as late as the 20th.

    Any thoughts?

    Still waiting. My only concern is Dallas receiving my college transcripts by the 20th. I really hope we hear something today or Friday.

    Was just told they will be sending out notifications on if you passed today at 3:00/3:30 and you can also go to the neogov website and if it says referred then you have passed
