    air brake is no joke. its a lot of information on things you don't see often or have no clue what and where it is located. some are not mechanically inclined and will have a hard time absorbing all the information. yes they try to help you in the review as much as they can but there's so much the instructors can do. my personal experience it also depends on the instructor. its a good thing they have air brakes now before ticketing. we have ticketing before air brakes so when its time to study air brakes your brain is almost shot. it sucks but a lot have difficulty on air brakes than the book.

    when i was studying for the s&d, it was very hard to get started with the signals. they all seemed the same in the beginning. what i did was laid all my index cards on the table (by rows) in the order they were in the packet. then i stood there and looked at it. i saw a the difference and it kinda had a pattern. that worked for me, in my experience. 2 weeks before i qualified i ws writing the whole whole thing everyday, aspects and indication. if your hand didn't hurt from writing you may not be doing enough studying.

    for the guys who passed s&d, always remember to check you email. i believe HR sends email. You don't get a phone call. good luck.

    this guy have no clue what he's talking about. good luck to you bro. you just don't have what it takes to get through probation and give your best to qualify. yes qualifying is hard but like you said they give you 7 tries. if 7 tries is not enough for you then the problem is you. i did it with a lot of responsibilities (family, mortgage etc.) i was with my last employer for 23yrs and it was worth switching careers. i made the sacrifice and with the support of my family and friends we are now enjoying what i worked hard for. yes it is not for everyone. your life will change but it get better the longer you stay. job is so easy and they are not out there to fire you. all you have to do is show up on time, do what you are supposed to do and then go home. you don't take any BS home. sorry you felt differently but don't give any negativity to potential AC's if you haven't gone through the whole thing including qualifying. to the newcomers: please disregard this guys post. there are no easy tests. qualifying is hard but over 1000 guys did it. hours are crazy but it gets better with time. again, nothing is easy in life. hard work pays. this guy just what it easy. keep dreaming dreamer
