    I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with these, and if so can you please shed some light on it

    Did you check out the website that TVFR directed us to on the purple sheet that they handed out after the written last weekend? I think it was ergometrics.org....then click on the FireTeam link in the middle of the home page.

    That website has a practice test....I'm not sure if that is the exact format that will be used on the Video Based Human Relations Test....but definitely helpful.

    I was surprised at how fast people were finishing. I studied that guide for 3 months and felt very comfortable with the material. I still had about 10 questions to go and thought I was checking through the test pretty good....and people started pouring out at that point. I spent another 15 minutes double-checking my answers.

    I know for sure that I missed 2....I had doubts about them and double checked the guide after the test....and missed them.

    When I first got the study book I studied it night and day for about a month, then I started looking over it again with about 2.5 weeks till the test. I felt very comfortable with the test. I finished in about 50 minutes and I thought that I was going pretty fast. But I was very surprised to see people finish in 20 minutes.

    Yup....either they were VERY confident....or just giving up.

    Did you get a chance to make it over to Portland's training facility to run through the PAT?

    Yeah I ran through it once on friday and twice on saturday. I made it in about 7 minutes so I feel pretty confident about it. But I need to do more cardio to get me in better shape overall
