    I've got the 12:30pm email. I thought I remembered being told that the next cycle will be from the Nov 16th 2013 test we are taking.

    Most likely. I went last time. I'm assuming it will be the same thing, but I still think I should go.

    What exactly is the mini-academy? Do they just go over how the test works and what to expect?

    An update on that study guide I posted. Seems legit enough, the gold package comes with 600 questions, 100 for each section. Found myself missing a few items, so I'll start studying off of this as well. The WSI study guide that comes with it is 100 questions. It doesn't give you answers, except on ones that should be answered with strongly agree, and strongly disagree. The other ones that are not labeled like that are up for you to answer, virtually all the questions I see are common sense if you go in with a team oriented, social butterfly, accepting of others, mindset.

    Does this guide pertain to the Philly study guide ? As I understood it, the test was supposed to be entirely based on the info in the guide. The WSI sounds helpful though.

    Mini academy was all information I already knew. Lady just went over the study guide, the test, confirmed that the WSI was the only thing that ranked you on the list. Only new information was whom I guess was the human resources guy saying that they expect to hire a few hundred in the next two years.

    yeah i was glad to hear confirmation about the WSI ranking as well. did i hear someone saying that there were close to ten thousand applicants? figures i brought my IFSAC FF1 cert to submit and they wouldnt take it. im going to have to dig up the other one that says PA on it. i was told they would accept certs the day of testing.

    The lady said there was 10k applicants yes, but who really knows. She only represented the test, not the city. One thing I wish I asked was if there was more then one correct answer to each question on the WSI.

    Under the time section, did anyone else get " TIME: 0.541666666666667"?

    I have a cpat orientation for Anne Arundel that is mandatory and I'm hoping the times are far enough apart that I can make both.

    I converted both 0.354166666666667and 0.541666666666667 in Excel to a time format, and the answers I got were 8:30am and 1pm respectively. Not sure if this is correct, but it's what I am going with for now.
