    You took the S&D test today? Or are u talkn about a diff test? How many people passed? Congrats!! What did they mean by 3 month cycle starting in Sept? Does that mean they are having the Sept class that was up in the air? Whatever info u can share would be very appreciated not just by me but by all of the others who passed and have been waiting to hear anything. Thank you in advance.

    Has anyone heard anything at all about any upcoming new classes? Does anyone know if the LIRR got the funding for the Sept class?

    Does anyone know how many people passed the sd test in april, may and june ? July had 22 people pass. Im just trying to somehow figure out how many people are waiting to be put into a class since april. Its probably an impossible task but worth a shot.

    I have to say im really quite surprised that many people who have passed the sd test still have yet to recieve any sort of email after passing their sd test.. With that being said, Does anyone know if the panel interview and/or the hand written assignment they give u after u complete ur test have any effect at all on your overall standing with the lirr? Do those two things count for anything?? Does anyone know? The only thing i know is that i watched linda going over my hand written assignement and she was actually writing down some sort of number for my answers to each question. So maybe the panel interview and hw assignment account for more than we think??? Anyone know for sure?

    Any idea what the reason would be that someone never gets an email of any sort after passing the sd test?

    This is a great question and i will do my best to answer it mlad.. At the overview on june 11th they had us write down 2 dates for classes that will be starting. The first date was Aug 22nd and the second date was Sept 26th. At the test yesterday, after i found out i passed, i asked linda if it will be possible to be put in the aug class and she told me no because its full already. Then i said ok so then most likely ill be in the sept class and her reply was, What sept class? i dont know nothing about any sept class, this test right here is for classes that will start in jan and feb. It took me by major surprise hearing that from linda.... then when we were going over the hand and whistle packet, classes were brought up again and the instructor said that they are trying to have the sept class but it depends on funding. It was a major dissapointment. I dont understand how the instructor would know about a sept class but linda would not know anything of it... Does anyone know how that works? or how they select dates for new classes??

    Hi wakada, can i ask u what u mean by short 2 questions? Does that mean you got a 76 on the test? Do u know if all ur signal names were correct? Im sorry to hear u missed by 2 questions. Just keep up the determination, reapply and kill it the next time around!!! I believe if u fail the test, you have to wait 1 year, then reapply and if they again select u, then u have to repeat the entire process all over again.. Open house, overview, then sd test again. If im wrong can someone please correct me?

    I just wanted to say that although i passed the S&D exam with a 100%, something happened today that really put a really bad taste in my mouth. I really wish i can share it with everyone, but it would be totally out of line to post it on a public form. It really has me enraged!

    hey ironhorse, thats exactly what i have been doing the last two days. flash cards plus cd. the cd will point out a tiny mistake u made that maybe u wouldnt even catch using flash cards. so i too have found it somewhat useful, but the cd is also a tiny bit outdated, a couple defs are missing a word here and there and for that, its a little irritating.

    Thanks for the advice Mlad... I have strictly used my flash cards the last 4.5 weeks(since the night of the overview up until right now) . Over the last 2 days, in addition to using my flash cards, i just wanted to try something new so i tried out the cd, but i have learned everything from my flash cards and will continue using them right up until they tell us to put everything away on test day this upcoming monday.
