TEST WAS FAIR AND ON POINT


Just got back and I have to say that I found the test to be fair. I am so temoted to say it was easy but let me hold back a smidge. I definitely passed  and I hope that most of not all of you did as well.

I feel the test was fair in the way that it asked all the things LT's should know..such as comprehension, reading, work knowledge, judgement etc...on previous tests they would ask nonsense and even if you were fairly intellegent you had to memorize things word for word. Why do we have to know the exact height of letters on a jacket?? There were a few questions that could have double answers. I know I did ok on this test. I think there was a lot of senarios that we will deal with every day when promoted. I hope you all end up doing better then you think.

I do agree with you Bklynvet to a point... I just think, IMHO as this is only my second test (1st being my Sgt exam) that it would have been nice to get some insight from any of the instructors about the test platform changing (unless this was discussed and I missed it as CLEARLY I am not certain).

I would like to think that I have some others who will agree with me... or not, who knows.

When the schools discuss grammer it's more along the lines of "Know, No" or "To, Too, Two".

This test reminded me more of an SAT exam rather than a test of Patrol Guide knowledge. Also, unlike many of my counterparts I am not college educated. I was a "pre-college" kid when I came on.

I found it quite difficult.

the schools and/or instructors have no idea what the test is going to be like......that is why often you see them applyng and taking the exams themselves......if they knew what the exam was like, they wouldn't need to go

Well brat4914 ..lol.. that would make sense.

In any event, I would love to hear an instructor from The Key's input as IMHO I found their classes the best.

AND...
I still think the test was difficult!
..lol..

The test was not easy, and just be quiet because you feel great that you didnt study for this exam and have the same chance at passing.

Well I studied and I thought the straight PG questions were very vague and very tricky. I really think many can be appealed with double answers. The 205 question that didn't even follow the procedure it was going to in the fact pattern had a choice that was in the Additional data that had you referring to 218. Think "orange cap" question, without giving it away to the sabbath observers. They want you to answer a question based on something out of 205, but in the same procedure something from 218 is in the additional data and appears as choice? How do you pick "most correct" in a sequence of events that actually combines two procedures and the 205 procedure wasn't followed by the Sgt or Lt, but was expected to be followed when answering the question?

I thought that question was trickey but you were only the Lt, you were not the person that the additional data says you had to be, so I went with what the first few steps of the procedure said. I'm sorry for being so vague, I don't want to give anything away.

What a bunch of whiny unintellectual sour pusses some of you are. It saddens me that you find the need to bash me because I found this test fair and to the point. It was an easy venture in my book. Granted, some found it extremely hard but that only shows the level of you understanding and the limited capacity of your brain to comprehend the simulated problems confronted by a typical Lt. candidate. This test was made to weed out those less inclined to be promoted and like clock work those who failed now lash out with anger and disdain at those who moved up the evolutionary ladder of rank. Some are destined to pass and some are destined to languish in the rudimentary rank of Sgt. It is after all the nature of the beast. Rest assured that you remaining a Sgt does serve a purpose. The job needs institutionalized Sgts hence you did not pass. Oh well.

Good luck to all those who passed and for those who failed....STUDY HARDER NEXT TIME!

I guess the douche bags that were trolling on the sgts forum made their way here. Ignore them

 Troll
 
One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument
"Test was fair and on point" Enough said.

 I thought so too, but it turns out that it's an invalid question.
