    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.

    I passed, but only with a 75.00

    I wonder with that score what the odds would even be to get an interview after passing the CPAT. I imagine there's a bunch of people who passed and I've got an awfully low score.

    Well, I scored an 82, and don't feel that great about it. If you pass the CPAT, you interview the next day,....but,.....how many folks with scores in the 70-80's get a job offer? I know some folks can be great test-takers, and screw up in the oral,...but,...my low score really concerns me. (I thought I had at least a 90). Good luck to everyone.....what was the final number of people to be hired?

    88.00

    I dont want to sounds complainy bc 88 is a decent score but definitely I felt the same as many of you, I thought I did a little better, like low 90s.

    Sounds like they are looking to get the dice rolling here with the interview scheduled the day after a successful CPAT.

    Best of luck to all who took the test...
