Remember wear sweatpants or gym shorts. I made the mistake of wearing jeans and had to adjust my jeans to walk over ballast and mimic climbing a locomotive. Lol.

When were you notified that you had passed the S&D exam? Its been over 3 weeks for me so far and I'm getting a little worried...I think I passed the exam, but there is that annoying doubt that grows day by day.

It’s best to wait for the packet. They’re always changing the wording on the S&D packet. You don’t want someone to give you something that could potentially be wrong. I know engineers who gave the info to their relatives ahead of time and they still failed S&Ds or phase 1 exam.

Curious to know if anyone else who took the S and D exam with me on the 7th also passed? I believe there was only 7 of us who took it.

Wow, only 7 took it?  That’s crazy.

September 7? Be patient. I found out exactly one month after the exam that I had passed. It was hell second guessing myself for an entire month. If you feel like you did well, you probably did. Good luck.

You can use the Quizlet app for your phone, however, beware that some of the indications and definitions are different than the packet that will be given to you. Regardless of what Quizlet says - the packet must be your rule and guide! At the Overview, if there are any extra copies of the packets they will be offered to you. TAKE THEM. You can make flashcards from the extra packets. If there are no extra packets - have color copies made. The packets will be well worn by the time you take the exam.

I know right.  That’s what the teacher said to. Guess people weren’t prepared. You gotta be dedicated.

It went very well.  Eye opening for some.  Looking forward to the rest of the process.  Being randomly called about a definition or indication was daunting at first but when you see it isn’t only yourself that makes a flub and that you are there to learn from each other and support each other, it helps.

I think we all are trying to catch-up with rest cause it was such a long day LOL.   I know, it’s just the beginning of long days.  🙈

HI everyone! Got the call that I passed S&D on Tuesday and I have my panel interview next month!! Could anyone give some tips and pointers? I read on here that they ask general questions and make you memorize some stuff before the interview. Is this still true?

 

Good luck to everyone that began Phase 1 :)

Everyone seems like they're willing to study hard and work hard for the results. Someone recently got caught not putting in the effort. Just remember there is no way to beat the system, even if you make the right scribbles on a test you will be found out elsewhere...there is no way to beat the system, you either know it or you don't.
