  1. Ask around, there is about 4 gig of data out there. Unfortunately most of it was pretty useless for the last test.
  2. The answer key was available online a few weeks after the test (see below) . If you mean a final answer key after appeals? IDK http://web.mta.info/nyct/hr/answer_key/proposed/6718_proposed_key_multiplechoice_unsigned_20170408.pdf http://web.mta.info/nyct/hr/answer_key/proposed/6718_proposed_key_supervisory_unsigned_20170408.pdf
  3. I've heard DCAS will certify a list in December. The answer key you filled out when you took the test could be compared to the official answers just a couple weeks after the test. 19 people started school as provisional MS1 on Monday (9/11) I have heard the re E will be additional classes as soon as this class if finished.
  4. So what is the latest rumor?????? I'll start 1) 1600 people took the test, and only 109 passed (IDK if that includes essay, don't think it did) 2) DCAS will certify a list in December 3) There will be a class of provisional MS1's before the list is certified Does anyone have knowledge, no rumors please...... How do they select provisional supervisors?
  5. Not a betting man, but the odds of the test being entirely voided is slim to none. I heard quite awhile ago a D.S. went downtown for questioning a couple of times, Nothing came of it, he's still on the job. If people confirmed they purchased answers to an investigator the D.S. and the people who confessed would be on the street, fired done. I've heard 40 people in the 207th street overhaul got a 100 on the test??? How's that possible, first there is no published list, so all scores today are word of mouth. I got a 75.99999 (14 wrong) is it true or am I full of shit? (true) Second questions are submitted by many different mangers. If the D.S did submit questions and they were used he would only know the ones he submitted, not those accepted from MS1's and D.S.'s. I've heard less than 160 of nearly 1600 passed the test, somewhere in the 10% pass range. I've also heard there is a good chance for some "provisional" MS 1's to be named within the next two months.

  7. does anyone have any verifiable information on civil service law? my specific question is.... can a application deadline be extended? I have heard rumors of people being allowed to apply for the promotional exam 6718 (MS1 car equipment) the "Notice of Examination" clearly stated applications would be accepted from May 6. 2016 to the deadline of May 24,2016 second question is.... is there a way to find out if they have actually allowed people to apply after 5/6/16? thank you for any assistance
  8. the wiring was simple for me ( I did large scale machine tool wiring for years ) it was a single board with a few swiches and relays running through diodes to turn on lights (powered by a 6 volt lantern battery) all the components were mounted, just wire according to directions if your electrical diagram skills are decent just review diode pollarity
  9. I don’t remember safety glasses at all, I wear prescription glasses and if they asked I would have said they were safety glasses. There is no dress code, the papers I received said I needed work boots (steel tipped I think). I didn’t own a pair at the time so bought a decent pair of boots, I don’t think I have worn them since. I remember seeing other people not in boots and it didn’t seem to matter, as far as I could tell. No white sneakers and shorts just dress casual, jeans without holes a collared shirt. When I took my practical test they did take a picture of me, IDK why it wasn’t used for my pass.
  10. The wiring circuit was on a piece of plywood components were already mounted. With a roll of wire, I wired it according to the circuit drawing, crimping a ring terminal for each connection and mount it with a flat washer, lock washer, and nut, and then tie wraps it all neat. (the supplies provided included nuts & washers that wouldn’t fit and multiple sizes of ring terminals. The instructions said use the correct size for the wire, so just use the right color; I think I used red (22-18 AWG) if I picked a nut or washer that was the wrong size I put it aside, and put them back into the hardware case or the next guy. I was not required to wear gloves, but that was almost five years ago.
  11. practical test was 3 parts all had a time limit. 1) wiring circuit building ........ mounted on a board were a few switches, lights.relays, and diodes. I had to wire them according to the wiring diagram, within the time I think we we're allowed just one rewire if time permitted or it was a failure to complete. 2) disassemble a pneumatic valve adjust a spring using wrenches and a 6 inch scale (ruler) and correctly reassemble 3) Troubleshoot a door operators switch assemble.... ( I got screwed doing this part, I wasn't provided a meter) there were 4 or 5 switches DPDT all wired and tightly tie wrapped together unnumbered wires that went to terminal strip with a few test lights wired in. Not allowed to cut the tie wraps, without a meter I was only able to find one problem. We had to write down explaining what was wrong. I was of course nervous; setup was a workbench with small dividers I didn’t want to get accused of cheating so I didn’t look around. I found out from a co-worker almost three years after the test that his tool kit had a multimeter. I do wonder what my test results (seniority number) might be if I had a meter.
  12. car inspector job title doe not require a drivers license, Road car inspector title does they can take people from the list and say "you will be an RCI", but I would avoid the job title if you can. there are under 400 RCI's their a 24/7/365 title, you can literally have this title without getting a day job with weekends off for over 10-15 years they do make top pay from the start, and make about $1.50 an hour more, but no overtime so you can possibly make more doing troubles in the barn with OT

  14. so what is a "Revenue Equipment Maintainer" what equipment is it?
  15. I believe the title you are refering to is Car Inspector, I don't have any current information but asking about CI test would get more interest in your question.
