    They do have other exam books (Traffic Agent, Police officer, etc...)

    also i wonder if this MTA test will be like a regular test you take @ school with multiple choice and fill in the bubble lol


    That is how the exam is done. No essays, just ABCD (maybe E also). Fill in the correct answer with a #2 pencil.

    The BOSS exam I took in Brooklyn at Livingston St. (MTA NYCTA Building), but for the T/O exam I went to Evander Childs H.S. in Da Bronx, on Gun Hill Rd.
