    Default Polygraph test

    Hey all. I'm currently nearing the end of a large city department's hiring process. I have a polygraph test in a month, and I'm more nervous about it than I am the Chief's Interview. I've never had one before, and I think I'm psyching myself out more than anything, because I have no criminal record and haven't done anything wrong.

    I know that if you come back as "failed" or "inconclusive" in certain areas that you wont move on to the next step. Any advice on how to calm my nerves down? Maybe from you all that have taken a polygraph before?

    I'm not asking how to beat the poly test, because I have no reason to try to beat it. I'm just nervous, thats all. Any help would be appreciated!

    Relaxe, tell the truth and don't read into the questions they ask you. If you want to know more just look up the last polygraph thread from about a month ago.

    Best of wishes and good luck
