  So I imagine you passed. They interviewed me but did not tell me whether I passed or failed. I waited 5 weeks  about 5 weeks for you to get the next stage.

I even emailed Lucille Marino on Sept 5th and she said I passed and to wait for her to get the date for the S and D.

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.

People don’t take me seriously. Lol. Guys. I made it to the end. Lol. I know what I’m talking about. Put the work in and you will make. You don’t put the effort, your just going to fail out the program and waste a seat that someone else could’ve been in.  #facts. Training. department and HR don’t play around. If your struggling. YOU WILL BE MEETING WITH HR for the talking. Glad I wasn’t under that much pressure.

I believed you from the beginning and now I’m beginning to see it real time. There is NO cutting corners.  One thing you will come to see is that none of the engineers will bullshit you.  They tell it like it is and it’s a lot of WORK as you will hear or have heard.  Book of Rules is a textbook and you will need to know it.  I’m not even halfway through it and I’m stressing.  But work at it and it will begin to stick.  Everyone is different so you need to learn what works best for you.  Listen to your mind and body.  Good luck to those going to S&D.  Everyday takes studying, don’t cheat yourself.

The only test is for you to show up on time. If your not there at 8am. Doors close at on time. You show up at 801a. You’ll be sent home.

They give you the packet and review it plus you sign a sheet stating that you understand that the test is verbatim.

No surprises, come back for your test on the date given.

How often do Phase 1 classes begin? Are there more than one class ongoing at any time?

Every 3-4 months is a new phase 1. And No. just 1 at a time. There are only 5 instructors.

Finally! Last week I received the call that I passed my S&D test and have an interview later this month. Been studying my flashcards a few times a week since the test. Will there be any S&D related questions at the interview?

Congrats on getting the interview. There were no S&D questions in my interview. That being said - that is not a guarantee that your interviewers will not ask any. Basic job interview type questions.

Does anyone know if the Phase 1 stuff on Quizlet is accurate? Is it "good enough" to get a picture of what is ahead?

I wouldn’t go off of anything on quizlet cause everything changes I would just wait till you get into phase one and Lucille sends you the stuff to start looking over my recommendation when you get that packet you start right away because when you get the real book of rules in phase one you will understand why just keep up with signals and definitions

Thanks. The Quizlet stuff for S&D was only about 90% accurate. Not good when it has to be verbatim.
