    Fingers crossed they're sending out notices in alphabetical order.

    Has anyone got an email back with their test date yet?

    I haven't received my notification yet but my governmentjobs.com account states that I have been scheduled for the written exam on July 25th at 8:00am.

    Same here, only I'm scheduled for July 24th @ 8:00am. It's odd that since there are/were only 500 applications accepted, that the written is scheduled over multiple days. I've tested with 1,000+ at one time before. (Here in Vegas)

    Just received mine as well. It's being held at the department of human resources, probably the reason for having to schedule multiple days. Not enough space for 500. Good luck to all.

    That does explain a bit,....but at this point,...does anyone who tested last time remember us being allotted 3.5 hours? My memory says 2 hours flat. Any chance there would be more to this test, or would we be told to study 'x, y, and z' in addition to the FPSI book? Good luck everyone!

    I took it as, we should allow 3+ hours for the entire process. In case anyone is being picked up, or has a plane leaving at a certain time etc..

    The study guide strictly says, everything you need to know is within this book so..

    But I'm also curious, there isn't any math in the study guide, so does that mean, no math on the exam?

    Hey, been out of the testing game for a while but just found a copy of the 10th edition FPSI Test Preparation Manual that I purchased a few years ago for the Burbank test. Just wanted to make sure it was still current so I was wondering if anyone who had already purchased the book would mind typing out the first sentence on page 43 for me. Don't mind buying an updated copy but figured I'd save the money if it wasn't necessary. Really appreciate it!

    Heat stroke, commonly known as sunstroke, is a life threatening condition in which death can occur if proper treatment is not rendered immediately.

    I have a 10th edition with practice test that I ordered for the Vegas test. I didn't get my app in time, so I no longer need the study guide. If any guys in the local area need one, send me a PM.

    I appreciate it "Thank you 4 your time." Hasn't changed! Anyone make it to an interview last time? Unfortunately wasn't able to make it out for mine last year but am looking to get back home this time around.

    Good luck on the test everybody! Probably will be a nice break from that 117 degree heat.

    I emailed City HR about CPAT, they will not be sponsoring it, and will require those who move forward after the written to obtain their CPAT from a certified location.

    Did they say the criteria for "certified"? Any other details about what locations they'll except?

    No, I simply asked if LVF&R will be sponsoring it. I was told to not take one now, but instead wait to see if I'm moving on. The last time LVF&R simply required candidates to test at an IAFF-Certified CPAT location, or have a valid CPAT card, which is valid for one year.

    I believe testing started yesterday, with two test sessions each day up until Thursday. One at 8am and the other at 1pm. Without getting into details, for those that already tested, how do you feel about it?
