    It been a long time since I have taken the exam. But if I remember correctly, there was no way to study for it. It was such a poorly written exam back in the 90s.

    Yuore not going to believe me, but it had pictures of a guitar playing student, a waitress, college student, etc and you had to guess what they are thinking and their thoughts.

    I am not joking. I think since then, it has been changed.

    I have no idea what a CWH exam is, but what CALFFBOU describes is exactly what was part of the PG county test which I took last year I think. The pics CALFFBOU describes sound like the sames ones I had as well as a hispanic janitor and a black guy doing something else. The choices were their thoughts and stuff and I think you might have had to select more than one choice. I guess they are trying to catch any prejudice views you have. Sounds like maybe the test hasnt changed at all. Anway, if you can read other people minds in a picture, then you are golden. Good luck to ya.

    YEP, that was it!

    I remember taking that test and knowing I was going to fail. And most of us did. My best friend who always scores in the very top levels even failed.

    I am guessing they changed it since then, but who knows.

    nope they havent changed it a bit! that same test is used every year here in ND with one fire dept, and there is at least 2 MN dept's using it. I have a study guide that was sent to me from the one dept in MN i tested for. Now if anyone can come up with a good study guide for that ''work team simulator'' written by Management and Personnel systems Inc. I would like to see that!

    kgain25 drop me a PM with your address and I'll send ya a copy of this study guide.
