Don’t get caught up on the word “indication”. To us it means the signals come with an indication and a definition for each one. For the signals test, write out the ASPECT (Name of signal). The verbatim part of the test, it will be stated as INDICATION (Write out definition of the signal). Hope this helps. 

Yeah so on the test you'll see Red over Red. The Aspect, or name of the signal, is STOP SIGNAL. The indication (what its telling you to do) is STOP.

@Steven trejo I was just wondering,  how many people were in your s&d test back in may, and out of that how many passed the test?  I'm curious how many people from your s&d test group are waiting to be placed into phase one.

Hey there was about 25 people maybe more, didn’t really count and I didn't ask how many passed.

I took my S&D July 20th. My interview is in the middle of September. Idk how many people made it out of my group as well. I would assume a phase 1 would be starting soon. Before I went into the phase 1 overview they were saying only 3-6 people passed. Maybe they are waiting for a full class to fill up unless they have a date set and if it is full or not that’s when the class will start. Just thinking out loud

Did anyone get a call for phase 1 yet or does anyone have an idea when the next phase one will begin. I’m still waiting for my interview but still studying my S&D everyday.

Does anyone know how many indications or definitions we are allowed to get wrong on the s&d exam?

Out of 40 you can only get 8 wrong.  Signals remember is 100%.

What kinda got me mad was that the instructor who gave us the s&d when I took it in May told all of us that we would find out the same day ! And I never got a call or email the day of , and was super nervous couldn’t even have dinner in peace with my GF. got an email roughly two weeks after. “Passed”

Mine isn’t in the middle of September also. Took my S&D July 20th. Hope we make the cut for the upcoming phase 1. We will be cutting it real close. Fingers crossed!
