I finished in about an hour and 20 minutes, though I really don't think that was a good thing :\
Good luck all!
The only other one that got me was the tire radius question.
I mainly had the same issues as you guys/gals. Honestly, I don't think I did well enough to move on. This test was very time consuming, unlike LVF&R's test you knew what to expect. The tire radius question also got me. I did the math problems last as I knew it would take me the longest, not a math whiz. Good luck to you all.
Anyone care to make a guess about the cutoff for this test considering the number to be hired coupled with the number of those tested? I'm thinking (hoping, actually) at least 85. Also, does anyone know if they will accept a valid CPAT card, or will we have to CPAT regardless?
I put "C" for the tire radius question. I can't remember, but was that 42 inches?
The cutoff for the last test was 70%
For those of you who moved on to the CPAT last time, did it mention in your notice that you made the cutoff and that your moving on to the CPAT or did they send a second notice informing you that you made the cutoff and that your moving on.
I really don't remember... I've been racking my brain trying to remember my score,.... Pretty sure it was in the high 80's/ low 90's.... I think the last time I tested, there were only 1,000 applicants, so, 300 or so CPAT-ing doesn't sound out of line (if 70% was passing/cutoff). But with 2,500 testing, that would mean 750 would potentially be CPAT-ing, and roughly 500-600 interviewing.....seems kinda high, but they're also hiring quite a bit more this time around as well. Once again, as it always goes with FF testing,..we'll all find out soon enough. I know I didn't get a 100 on it, so, my fingers are crossed for 85 being the cutoff.
Here is the email from last test cycle, received 20 Aug 2010...
> You have successfully passed the multiple-choice written examination for the position of FIRE FIGHTER I (ROOKIE SCHOOL), Exam #FF-2010 with a score of 81.00. At a later date, you will be notified of practice dates and times for the Candidate Physical Ability Test.
...I found my email from the last time I tested with CC.....scored an 85, and made to the interview. This was my first FF interview, and it was rather 'unconventional' compared to not only other interviews I've had but also what we all understand to be the 'format' for FF interviews. I was caught off-guard, and really didn't feel that great about it after it was finished. I've tested/interviewed a few more times since then, and plan to do quite a bit better this time around. (like they all say, "whenever you DON'T get hired, always learn from the experience, and apply it to the next interview.")
Hey USAFfiredog, I tried sending you a pm, but you need to enable your pm option. It says that I am unable to send message because the user has not enabled that option.
Scores/ results for the test are out. I didn't make the cut. Another learning experience. Fyi, cut off is 70. Best to those that are moving on.
@USAFfiredog: I got the email around 4:30 pm west coast time. I can't win'em all. I'm definitely going to take this testing experience w/ Clark County as a learning experience. The written exam was time consuming. I simply ran out of time. On to the next one.
Well... I did not make the cut either. Honestly, I was a little shocked to see what I scored, I thought I did better. I have to agree with dctalk523, I felt rushed on time towards the end of the test and simply ran out of time and had to guess on about a dozen questions. By the way, my email said that 70% is the minimum passing score. Am not sure if that is also the cutoff score to move on to the CPAT. Good luck to the rest of you. On the bright side, LVF&R and HFD should be testing again in the near future.
...so those who didn't make it got emails? Seems kinda backwards...I would think those who DO make it would get the emails,....
Sorry to hear from those who didn't make it...like nnfra200302 says, the other Depts. in the Vegas valley should be testing again soon...
Good luck to everyone.
Ya, thats what it looks like... Hopefully they will send the rest of the results emails this week.
