I believe they will provide maps just as they did with the conductor...might wanna pick up a subway map...all main attractions are on there,all you need to know is how to read a map. I've taken several tests with mta and really there is nothing hidden. You just need to know how to find those answers to the questions that pertain to landmarks.

you have to be in the service during a conflict or war and received a letter or campaign badge or medal you would have to look it up on who gets the points and who does not i was in the service us navy from 1979-1985 and i dont get any points if i remember you had to be in grenada conflict,lebanon,panama,kuwait,irag,afganistan,thats an example but you got to be sure disabled vets get more points i thought they get 10,and non disabled get 5 points contact dcas by email or phone go to the web site dcas

how many points do the veterans get? is it 10?

 

Pretty sure all veterans get 10 points on open competetive tests or they get 15 on promotional tests. This is why some guys don't use there credit originally they save it.

I.S 93 where I am taking it tomorrow is about 10 blocks away. I assume that each location has an am and a pm session. The bus is easier for you if you live in Queens. Q54,Q39 stop near where you have to be at.

Greaaaaat! I was thinking of reversing tactics and getting there just at or after 3:30. Usually Im there an hour or so before and I still wait forever and theyd ont start the test till an hour and half after test time till everyone is seated. Figured Id just show up later and wait later but now you are scaring me straight lol.

If someone scores a 95 and gets 10 points veterans credit, will they get 105 on the exam?

Hi

 

Knowing how high most of the most people will score on this exam, those veteran credit will definely get them the job over those who don't. I think the competition is who can score higher then 100. Since there so little openings.

 

For once I wish they hadn't made this exam so damn easy.

nah there's always been veterans taking this test and they still get down to ppl who scored as low as 95. this time there's a lot more people but probably a small percentage of that will be veterans. they had to have served in a war i think
