    Thats GREAT to hear man!!! I dont know if you would remember, but i was the one asking a million questions at our overview lol... As far as studying is concerned, im at about the same as u. i have not even looked at a single definition yet. I have literally been studying my butt off everyday and have shut off communications with the outside world and will continue to do so for the next four weeks...If u want, inbox me your cell number and we can help each other if need be. im glad to hear your studying is going great!!

    Hi Ironhorse, i wanted to ask u a question, i have read many of your posts in this entire thread and have a lot of respect for you so i would really value and appreciate your opinion.... My sd overview was this past monday, june 11th..... Where should i be in my studying as of today? Like how many signal names should i know, how many signal indications should i know, and how many definitions should i know with today being the 5th day of having the sd study packet? I would also like to ask u, when you were studying for ur sd test, how did u study? did u learn all the signal names first then the indications 2nd and finally the definitions last? or did you study all 3 everyday ? Thank you ironhorse, like i said i really value your opinion and any recommendations you may have for me.

    I know everyone learns differently, with that being said, Can anyone tell me how long it should take the average person to learn all 72 definitions exactly word for word? How long did it take you to learn the 72 definitions inside and out? ughh im sooo afraid that 5 weeks isnt enough time to learn all of this material word for word verbatim!

    FD, How many signals and indications of those signals do u have down 100% so far? How many definitions do u know 100% so far? I cant get over how much information there is and that we need to know it ALL word for word verbatim!!!!! its crazyyyyy and i have literally been studying my butt off since i got home from the overview on monday!!!

    I would say after learning the signals in order, you wont really know them 100% until you are able to mix them up while quizzing urself or if someone else quizzes u.. So absolutely make sure u mix them all up after you are really familiar with them.. Are you currently studying both the signals and definitions? or just the signals and indications until u know them 100% before moving on to the definitions? I ABSOLUTELY HATEEEEEEEEE the MEDIUM APPROACH signals!!!!!!! They are totally messing me up!!!!

    Thank you thank you thank you soooo much for that information!! it is extremely usesful information to me!!! I was at the S&D overview on June 11th and the last thing they did was hand out the cd and the instructor told us that we did NOT have to email it back to them. Im guessing that we were the first ones to be told we no longer have to email the cd back? Its soo good to know that you found the cd to be useless as i have not even used it yet. Im finding that the “Zone A” Signal names are throwing a monkey wrench into the other signal names because they kind of look very similiar to the “Zone C” signal names. its annoying the fuhhhhh outta me lol. Thank u sooo much again for your help and if you would like to give me any other reccomendations, i will gladly use them

    Thank u for that, i was getting nervous that the signals wouldnt stick to my brain. I really want this job really bad and i literally have been studying my azzzzz off since the overview 3 days ago and am getting extremely nervouse because it seems none of the signals are sticking to my brain other then the clear proceed signals and the stop and proceed signals. I have not even took a peep at the definitions yet... Does anyone recommend if i should be going back and forth from signals to definitions? or should i just stick to the signals until i know them verbatim inside and out before i start studying the definitions? Also, im not trying to get a leg up on anyone so if what im about to ask is out of line then please just disregard... Can someone tell me the test format? Like how are the questions asked? Lastly, the CD that they give us at the overview, how helpful is that?? i have not used it yet. Is the cd rom the same format as the test? And how helpful did u find the cd rom? Thank you so much in advance to anyone who can help answer my questions... I really need this job in the absolute worse way. Its very rare that someone can find a job that they are extremely passionate about not to mention every lirr employee seems so nice, cool, and so down to earth. Thanks again soooo soo much fellas!

    Whats up everyone? i was wondering for those of you who have passed the sd test, how many hours a day would you say you studied for in the 5 or so weeks leading up to the test? im having some trouble understanding the signals. Its only been two days since the overview so im just hoping that the more i go over them the more sense the signals will start to make. Lappa, Did your cousin go to the overview? and if so, do u know if he has started studying yet?

    Hey whats up fd87 ?!? Are you going to the overview on monday? Im glad to see that i wasnt the only one that was really flipping that the email took soo long to come. They told me in the interview at the open house to look out for the email invite in about a week and it literally took 3 weeks to get to me. Anyway, i wish u the best of luck and ill see u and Lappas cousin on Monday. Hey Lappa, Do you know if your cousin is attending the overview on Monday?
