    lol yeah but still wouldn’t go and bomb the simulator because then the TSS’s there gonna tell your TSS’s and ya all gonna look bad, like wth is this person doing! With the simulator you just gotta really read the question and answers 2/3 times then you be like ohhhh, they tryna get me lol.

    The simulator is wayyy harder than the actual signal test! Trust me! It does prepare you but it really be a lot of trick questions on there and it’s not nearly like that on the actual exam, it’s straight forward! Again if ya see other T/O’s out there ask them for some “study material!”

    Get a button down! There are a lot anal TSS’s and they will come at you about the uniform! I personally saw a TSS tell someone in my induction class to get a button down and not to wear their polo anymore! They even complain about the winter coat, must be black or navy blue and indistinguishable from MTA uniform.

    Once you get sworn in, the job is yours! As is any other job, you have probation. School car, exams, practicals, that’s on you! You don’t have to be a train buff to get this stuff! If you put in the time and this is what you want, it will come to you! I’m YX now and I have seen some T/Os down here like how is this person a T/O smh, but again it’s on you to put in the work and study! You will be taking daily quizzes, mostly on stuff learned the previous day, depending on your TSS. Those don’t count, they’re just given so the TSS’s can evaluate how you are retaining information! The ones that do count, again depending on your TSS, you will know when they’re coming and study extra! The official signal exams yes you have to get a 100%. On the multiple choice it’s on you, on the essays, you might be able to talk your way out of getting something wrong! Yes there are a lot of signals but honestly they become repetitive and very similar, you will learn to identify and group the similar ones together! When you get in, you will probably run into myself lol or other T/Os who will give you studying matieral lol! Just be humble and ask questions, there are lots of ppl down here willing to help!

    Well that's more for test and question situations, lol. They will purposely ask you about the other types of equipment. My class we really ain't new tech like that, being that your practicals will not be on them, unless they absolutely have no other equipment available. R46s are cool as well once you get a good position where you're comfortable with single hand operation.

    Yeah the new techs stop great, the R32s and R42s the breaks are strong! Those trains stop on a dime! But trust me you will get used to all of them. Remember whenever anyone ask you which train you prefer say "all of them!' lol

    Nah you bugging the brakes on the R68 are definitely lit. It’s a delay, you have to get used to, I hated it at first but when you get the concept of releasing into the stop, you’ll appreciate the R68 over all the other trains! At least I do lol

    Nah gotta think positive, the signals will come with time! Cutting and adding also you will get better doing it with practice! Cutting you’re just splitting cars, adding your combining them.

    He’s bugging, getting in young is the way! Wish I would’ve knew bout this test the last time they posted, I would’ve been straight. Posting with a dude today and he said he ain’t make less than 125k last 6 yrs and he don’t work on his RDOs. My man bout to retire with a sick pention, someone should’ve spoke to him, this shyt is like hitting the lottery.

    LOL they do not care about your suspensions! Just make sure you don’t have any open tickets, parking or moving violations. They will put you on hold!

    I understand all that, I’m not saying your question was stupid! Just follow the directions given and you would already answer most of the questions you have! There is still a copy of the notice of examination floating around on google. There really isn’t a mindset to figure out, everything is self-explanatory. Fill out the info, don’t leave any gaps and you should be fine. Again don’t over think it, you need some brain cells for school car lol.
