    I was only joking about the uniform, guys. It's the white/blue engines that I really can't stand!
    Seriously though, heard lots of great things about this department. From what I can tell they fight a lot of fire and they do it aggressively.
    I won't be taking this test but lots of guys from where I work will be trying to jump ship to FWFD.
    Best of luck to all you guys trying to get on here.

    Has anyone in this thread taken the Ft. Worth written exam before? If so, is the Don McNea study guide the best way to go for preparation?

    Has any body recieved a confirmation for the test? All I have seen on the recruiting packet is the test date. In past testings have they done one test time or multiple test times? Also does anybody know where the test location is going to be? I am assuming this information will be provided in the confirmation email but I am trying to get as much information as possible so I can plan my trip. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    I checked and mine is working. When I hit click here it takes me to a sign in page. If that is not working for you, you can go to the Fort Worth website and log in to your application and you should be able to check your status there. Hope this helps.

    It doesn't show up on a phone. You have to be in a PC for it to work.

    I noticed the study guides don't have any mechanical aptitude, or maps. Does anyone know if the test has it on there?

    I took the test and from what I heard there was around 2000 people who applied to take the test. I am not sure what the final number that tested was but the place was pretty packed. The good news is that they said they were planning on hiring 110 off of this list.

    Based off of 2000 people testing and 110 people getting hired would mean that 5.5% of those that tested will get a spot. That is not a huge percentage but i have tested for other departments that had the same amount of people in the testing pool and were planning on only hiring 12 to 24. So overall it isn't too bad when you look at the big picture.

    Plus the percentage gets alot better if you make it past the physical portion of thethe testing process as alot of people will not pass either the run or the PAT.

    I was at the test on Tuesday, and I counted tables each direction and came to a total of about 1400 people. That's not super scientific, but I think it should be within 150 either way. And yes, hiring 110 people was a huge (pleasant!) surprise to me as well. I felt like I did well on the test, so I'm focusing on staying in shape and getting ready for the next stage. I'm ordering a weighted vest and have been running and lifting for a while.

    Going into this process, it was hard to feel like I had a real chance if they were only hiring 24 people and 2,000 showed up. It's still a longshot, but it at least seems like a somewhat realistic possibility now.

    What does everyone think the cut off score will be for stanine 1? Also, do you think they will go through stanine 2 being they are hiring 110?

    The last time there were about 200 in stanine 1, which included scores down to a 98. I saw something that said they want to do a 4:1 ratio, which would mean 440 people, but that sounds like a lot.

    Those military points are HUGE. I only have the single point for being a Ft Worth resident, so I hope I got a 100 or close to it in order to have a chance.
