    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?

    Well as you already know this entire process is a huge waiting game. You passed the test and will be getting an email soon

    Yea u have to ask linda for your score not that it really matters. I can tell u they dont go by score thats for sure. I got a 100 on the test but people who passed with us were picked for jan class and they didnt get a 100. People in jan class have been emailed and im guessing the people slates for feb class were emailed today. So you should without question be in the following class whenever that is. Linda said in her email she dont have the exact date for class starting but sometime in Feb she said.

    the very first email this morning was from linda asking me if i was still interested in the position. I replied yes and then 5 min later i recieved the sterling email to start the background check. im still waiting on michelles email which i believe is consent and conditional offer. The people i spoke to have told me they recieved both the sterling email and michelles email hours apart.. When did you pass sd test? Have you heard anything since then?

    Can anyone tell me how long it takes for them to complete the background check? I passed sd in july and im still waiting for an email. I know a couple people who passed in july just got their background email yesterday. I am hoping that my email isnt that far away. Does anyone know the procedure the lirr does when picking people for a class? My cousin said 17 people passed with him and out of the 17 they were split into 3 different classes. I know they dont go by test scores as i scored a 100% on the test and one of the people in my class scored lower but yet got the email yesterday. I also know they dont go alphabetically nor do they go by date applied. Does anyone have any idea? This is weird.
