    Any word on why they switched to the I/O solutions NFSI exam? The NFSI is an awful assessment tool. I thought the previous exam was one the most fair and well balanced exams I had seen. It wasn't too easy and it required the applicant to put forth effort. The NFSI is an error filled exam written at an 8th grade level with a BS personality portion that makes/breaks your entire test score.

    Where did you come by this number? Also so the test is going to be different then...??? Its not going to be like they described on the website with the study booklet and then your test is based off of that information??

    Just like detroitmedic said counted the recipients on the email for the test. I guess I should be more specific and say that 522 people are taking the 1:30 test on Sunday.

    so it looks like 4 sessions over that weekend, probably safe to say around 500 in each group, so around 2000 testing...

    So the test is NOT going to be what the website describes then? I.E. getting the little booklet, studying the booklet for x amount of hours then taking a break and coming back to answer questions on it? So they are changing the format completely or what? Anybody have any input on this??

    I don't think the email could be anymore clear then what it is. It tells you what study guides to get and the website. That's just my input but I've never taken the test, just simply read the email.

    They switched to the I/O Solutions test. It consists of 105 general aptitude questions (written at roughly an 8th grade level) and then a 50 question "personality" portion. The personality portion is what will make or break your score. Per I/O Solutions, there are no right or wrong answers, yet it is a graded portion of the exam.

    I think the real question here is, has anybody heard if IFD will be hiring and if so how many people do they expect?

    Might not be able to make the test. Have a Chiefs interview and a medical around that time frame.

    Hey, it's less the Columbus haha. There was like 7,000-8,000 took that exam but then again they have a bunch of people retiring in the next few years because of drop. Nobody has said anything about how many they would be possibly looking for which worries me but might as well test and find out.

    An Officer assisting at the 0800 Sunday exam told us that 539 were scheduled for each session and "about half" showed up for each of the first 3 groups.
