I’m surprised the test wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be 12 of us passed.if anything the panel interview was the hardest thing all day and I wonder if the questionnaire test they did was a new thing there was no mention of it in the forums.

Yes, that's the format. 25 definitions, and 25 signals. So, something like:

 

BLOCK ____________________________

(picture of signal) NAME: ____________________________ INDICATION: ____________________________

 

You must get all of the signal names right. You must get at least 80% of the signal indications and the definitions right. 

thank you! time to start studying. I wish i was jobless so I have 16 hours  day to study lol

There’s really no tricks or gimmicks, it’s just associations I use I’m my head to try and remember. The key to passing the test is to study, study and study. There’s no way around it, just study every chance you get for 5 weeks and you should pass. You know wether or not your prepared once you sit down to take  test.

So for the Temporary Speed Signs on my paper work there is no indications, Is that correct? It just has the different names i.e. Temporary Advance Speed-Limit Sign. So if we get that on the exam we leave indication blank?

They're not going to ask you for indications of aspects that don't have indications.
