Anyone??

Have people test you verbally with the flash cards.  I'm talking like run thru the 126 signals, then later in day do all 72 definitions.  Whatever you screw up goes in a new pile to really study.  You have to review what you know but last week should be to focus on solidifying what you may be struggling with.  I also used the built in quiz on the cd-rom they give you at overview.  Just beat yourself over the head until you can't take it anymore.

My man, thank you for replying.  I don't want to psyche myself out by overthinking some of the definitions but I've been hammering away at all this materiel.  I just gotta keep polishing up everything within this next week. I do appreciate the insight.

Test is in less then a week.  Feeling confident after pouring plenty of hours into studying.  The days are starting to feel like forever, I need to take this test already.

Background check. If any paperwork or verifications need to be made for anything on your resume you will be contacted. Basically your resume will be checked to make sure it is all authentic. After that once that clears, you will be sent an email for medical. After medical, class begins baby!

 

And they took 2-3 weeks.

Hey did anybody hear back yet who took the test on November 6th. I got my conditional offer via email, and filled out the criminal background form and sent back but have not heard anything since. Background check shows complete.

Hi all. Just did open house yesterday 11/28. At what point in the process is the drug test, went through 20+ pages and got conflicting or vague answers. Is it after S&D exam?

Drug test is during medical which is after S&D exam and panel interview and after receiving conditional offer. I took the S&D test on 11/6 and passed, received conditional offer and background check information and am currently awaiting a call back for the next step which is medical which is the drug test along with a few other things. Medical is the last step in the hiring process. Good luck!!

I felt bad too, but like IRONHORSE said it is all part of the game. I know Linda said there was going to be a January and February class so most likely we will end up in the February class if we haven't gotten anything for medical yet.
