Yeah it was tough but I've been studying for the past 7 months extremely hard 4 d LT exam so I worked my way through it. The academy questions are d most exam-like questions in my opinion.

2007: 20 wrong (w/o having read or studied CIMS and 218/19)

2008: Just took it, 14 wrong (looking over, f*cked up from not reading properly about 3 questions I knew the answer to, "select the LEAST correct...." Studied 219, but not CIMS and read but didn't really study 218...I should probably get on that). Assuming I got 5 wrong on each in-basket, that's a 75 on 2007 and 81 on 2008. I did expect to do better on the 2008...but reassuring to know I'd have been made had I taken both of those exams. I wonder what 2009 will bring...

I can't seem for the life of me to not rush on these exams since I know it's not the real thing...I think I need the pressure of the real deal to really do well. I did both of these in under an hour more worried about looking at the answer key a few pages away rather than REALLY focus on the questions. I guess I'm a victim of my own psyche, hah.

Did the rewrite of 2007 and 2008 cram....2007 I got 12 wrong and 2008 I got 7 wrong. That seems to good to be true. Does anyone know if these cram questions are as close as possible to test day? Are these types of questions that were in the rewrite what was on those tests?

Yea looks like I got a 73 on the 07 and a 75 on the 08. Same here got caught up with a few words. This is my first test Ill be taking. I figure Im in decent shape if Im passing the other ones (even if its barely) I got 9 bonus points so I am just trying to pass. Good thing is I think I identified which sections I have to go over.

I got 75 for the '07 and 77 for the one from '08. I'm happy I passed, but I don't like being so close to the edge.

These are "rewrites", not the actual exams, also if you notice, there is no in-basket, just 100 questions, so some of them have to be either filler or a complete rewrite on the substance of where the in-basket was going but without the tedious actions of going through looking for it. The 2007 test had a 24 questions on in-basket, very unusual for a SGT's exam to have so many and before people write that in-baskets are easy, that one definitely wasn't.

Oh and I passed it in 2007, shortest list ever, only 300+ passed, the list was exhausted in 8 months of being established...

2007 was supposedly a very hard exam only a couple of hundred people passed. That was the 1st text with a PASSING grade of 70.

like someone mentioned........these are only rewrites......the 2007 exam was very intricate and very specific.......when they rewrote them exam, it impossible for them to include all of the little details
