    I have taken the new test administered from public safety and it is much more difficult. The first portion is scenario based and consists of 30 questions and allotted 45 mins. Then the next portion is the personality questions which are 120 questions with 30 mins to complete it. The last phase is 80 cognitive questions and the time limit is 2 hours. In the past, I was able to complete the fire exam in about an hour but this test will take up every minute of your time. Every single person in the room was scrambling to complete the exam when I left with 1 minute remaining. The study guide for the new fire exam can be purchased on the www.publicsafetytesting.com site under the store menu. The new test is no joke and very time consuming but just study and I am sure you will do just fine.

    I took it a few days ago in Lynwood, WA. This was my very first test and I thought it was fairly difficult as we'll. I got a 77.34%. Won't get me an interview, but I know what to expect in 177 days and will be fully prepared to knock that score up. I am curious as to how much the personality questions are weighted in your score?.. You really have to be fast. There is no time for review on this one.

    Took the new test for the third time and scored 80.65 yesterday, maybe I'm not smart enough to do this job. These test are set up to make money, period.

    Here is some info I just received from PST, when I asked what the average test score was. "Passing for the written FF exam is 70%, we’re seeing an average around 76%." - Brian Lackas, Public Safety Testing
