    Yup, thats exactly why my butt will be in the chair on feb 13 lol. Do you think that this feb class will be the last class for awhile?

    I thought this would be important to share in this thread... I am starting class 2/13/19. I called Linda up last week to ask her if it would be possible for me to be put into the next class instead of starting in the feb class. I told her the current situation i have going on which is why i was asking to be put into the next class. She totally sympathized with me but told me that there is a FREEZE and she has no idea when the next class will even be so i have to be in the feb class if i want the job. I only have a basic idea of what a freeze is. Can anyone shed some light on what a “Freeze” actually means? how long will the freeze last?

    Hey whats up man, i just finished the background check a few weeks ago.. Yes, you just reply to sterlings email and attach the requested documents. Sterling requested a w2 from me and all i did was take a pic of the w2, replied to their email, and attached the w2 and all was good.

    Everyones different let me first say that.. For me, i believe the definitions were much harder than signals. There are like roughly 4 or so different signals that all have the same meaning so it was easier for me. As for the definitions all of them have different meanings so its a lot of information to memorize. The best piece of advice i can give to you is you have to study EVERYTHING because the truth of the matter is that anyone of the definitions can be on your test and the same with signals. i highly doubt the signals that dont have any indication will be on the test but know them anyway. People will give you mixed answers for the cd. i found the cd to be absolutely useful and i did use it quite often when i had everything memorized because it will help you for when it comes test time and you have to write all your answers out on paper. i actually loved the cd. Lastly, i know it seems like a tremendous amount of information to memorize and the truth is that is really is a lot. The good news for you is that if you put in the time, you will absolutely memorize all of it. My guess is for the people who fail which is many many people, they are the ones who try to find short cuts to studying when there are no short cuts. They do not put the necassary time in so they fail. If you study hard and put the HOURS and weeks in, i PROMISE you that you will pass the test. I wish you the best of luck! You have such a wonderful oppertunity!!!! DO NOT LET IT SLIP THROUGH YOUR HANDS! PUT THE TIME IN!

    Without a doubt, you will have a zone a signal or two on your test. I know the zone a signals throw a monkey wrench into everything but as long as you put the time in to study everything, you will be fine. There are no shortcuts when studying, if u get one signal name wrong on your test you fail the entire test. Good luck to you. Its such a great feeling when you find out that you passed the test.

    I also passed in july and i am scheduled for class in february. People who are scheduled for feb class were emailed to start the background check exactly one week after the people who are in jan class recieved their background check email. So i know for sure 100% that there is a class starting in jan and there is a class starting in feb. My guess is if you have yet to recieve an email to fill out your background check that you will probably be in the very next class AFTER the feb class. I do not believe there is a class scheduled yet that starts after the feb class. i hope this helps you Mikey23

    what interview are you talking about that they sit down with you and go through your resume? are u talking about the open house? if so during the open house i went to, we took the initial exam, they called out all the people who failed, then those that passed had to take the math portion and after we passed the math portion, that is when we were interviewed and went over resume and job application. did u have a different process at your open house mlad?

    I didnt know they look into anything concerning backgrounds until sterling does it AFTER you pass sd test? Does your resume match your job application 100%?? i know they are strict with everything matching. Can anyone shed any light on this?
