    Chief Lepore, you give great advice and your book helped me finally get over that oral board hump but I gotta disagree with you, a suit and tie during a written doesn't do much. I went through the process with a few guys that were wearing suits you would see celebrities wear, and they didn't get hired. Maybe in Cali though... I hear the competition is brutual.

    Like I said before, most of your posts are very informative, but no need to bash others that dont agree with you..

    Sorry to question your authority though, sir. Cause i am just a dumb candidate.

    I ended up goin in with dress slacks and a button up. I saw all kinds of guys in Fd shirts and sweatshirts. One guy even wore his turn out coat. Thankyou for all the support again. I felt I did well on the test. Only a month to wait to hear back.
