    Default Help on information for a written test

    I am currently getting set to take the written test for Springfield, Missouri. I learned just today that they decided to switch the tests and have now contracted with a company out of California that also does the written tests for LA City, San Fran and San Diego among others. I was curious if anyone had any knowledge on these tests and what sort of stuff to study for. As far as I know there is NO Fire or EMS questions and is strictly general knowledge/aptitude. Their previous tests were loosely based on Fire/EMS questions with some general knowledge thrown in there. Thanks in advance guys.

    the test that I took about a year ago was, from what I hear, the same test for baltimore city. It had alot of morality type questions, but it had no questions on fire or ems. some of the math questions were fire oriented. such as % of involvment and pressure loss. I took and passed this test for Montgomery county, MD

    Thanks for the help. I was just at a loss of what to do since the last few years they have had the same test and had advised everyone it would be the same then I hear from a member of their HR that they switched tests and here I had studied pretty hardcore for this other test. Hopefully I will do good, I typically do good on "standardized" tests. Wish me luck.
