The best way to think of a practical exam is like you're performing. An actor on a stage. You should know the material as well as an actor knows his part. That way you can answer TSS questions if they try to interrupt you, than get back to what you need to do. Sort of like how an actor can improvise if he flubs a line or his partner in a scene forgets her lines, or there's some technical problem with the set.

 

The good thing about the conductor written tests is that you will pass with 80% correct, so if you really know your stuff you have a little breathing room if you freeze on a question or two. Train operators need to score perfectly on signals exam, by contrast, and I've known several T/Os who've failed the program when they got more than 80% of the test questions correct. 1-3 questions wrong. It doesn't often happen, but the fact that it does occur is probably the most stressful thing about T/O school car.

Nice, JMA how many drug test did you take? BTW happy for you man, God willing the rest of us make it through.

I took 2 drug tests. There's a reason why they do that. Thank you, bro. You'll do fine. We're three weeks in & I was assigned to a good crew thank God.

JMA, you wanted the A Div? did you guys pick?

Yeah but got the B because it was filled up before I could get to it. I'm just gonna wait a few years and then maybe hopefully I can get it.

HappyGoLucky, congrats on your accomplishments so far. Do you remember what they ask you to do for your FIRST practical. Cause we were told there's key thing we have to check for and do. For example they say it common people forget to check is the curcit breaker, that they intentionally trip. If u can please tell me what they said to you and what u did on your practical. I was also told they give us 30 min.

Did they double zone your train?

Did u have to reset your EPV?

Did you have to cut a faulty door?

What's did you notice on your cad that day?

Thanks I'm just nervous for what's coming

I hope so, bro. That's my goal once some time goes by. Aced my Signals quiz. Got a 93 on it. Missed it by a question I should've knew the answer to. Still waiting on the Circuit Breakers and Doors quiz.

 

We're four weeks in now. Going by very fast. Faster than I thought.
