Yano said he may do a 6 hour cram if there's interest in it and the place where he does the classes doesn't have anything booked.

 His crams are identical to his lessons, just going over specific procedures. I want to get a different perspective on things to help stick out more.

Also does anyone feel Mike's questions are not really geared towards captains at all? Feels like bunch of sgt question thrown in with very few capt ones.

Mike definitely recycled his Sgts/Lts material. I respect Mike, but he half-assed the Captains prep course. Very few Captain questions.

 I'm just relaying info.

To me this whole thing feels like a cram session. Theres no way you can read 3-4 sections in a week and grasp everything.

KEY just posted a cram course. Seems geared towards Sergents but they posted sergeant, lieutenant, and Captain.

There is no money to made in the Captain course.

Guys make around 2.5-4 million for sgt exam if not more per school.

Figure Lt. 1/2 of that.

Captain only 700 people taking. So 300 per school at 800 a class only 240k.

What kind of dumb question is that how do people study for captain exams everyone's study techniques are different some retain better than others. It's either you know the material or you don't

 Asshole, it was meant as in do people just study the PG and AG on their own and guess which procedures will most likely appear on the exam? The promotion courses gives us guides on what to study, so If courses for the captains exam are subpar, how do people study for it ?

Thanks for posting the email.

I took Elite for my Lts exam and did well. Did the same for this exam. As of right now i have done every activity, packet or question that was made available through Elites Captains course. I feel this exam course was rushed and should have been a 20 week course. I will be taking the Key cram course to get a different perspective as an earlier poster stated. Hope in the end its a fair exam. I put the time in and this is the last promotional exam for me.

Sticking to Mike's class. Might do the CRAM or not at this point it's all about reviewing the packets and I was worried about questions but he has so many it doesn't even matter. Wish someone would come up with a 100 question quiz isolating just capt's duties. I realieze they will question everything but I'm weak on the Capt's duties and that's the newest of information. Would be nice if one of these courses would just compile their existing capt's duties questions into just a 100 question quiz I'd pay to get my hands on that for this exam!

Does anyone know who was selected to write this exam? A lot of us never found out about Vucinaj until it was too late. Just curious if they would make that mistake again. If I had seen his name writing it in 2015 I would have stopped studying that moment after having a few interactions with him.

Rising star Capt's exam 1 & 2. How do they compare to the actual test? Are they on the harder side to challenge you? Or are they realistic to the exam. My vote is harder than one would expect based on the Lt's and Sgt's.

Based on the fact it had 7 cims questions and one truant question I looked at the history sheet and I believe it was the 2010 exam. Not sure how big the list was in 2010 and I could be wrong.

Now I understand why the 2010 list was only 125 names confuse

Our first re-write, the one being mentioned was from the 2010 test. We removed the in-basket portion and 4 procedures that were revoked, so the test you took had 84 questions. The actual 2010 test had 537 filers, 427 people who actually showed up, and 129 passed with a passing ratio of 30.21%

I got a 62 on the 2010 Captains Re-write. This exam was ridiculously difficult. Has anyone passed it yet?

Don't see it as difficult or discouraging.....see it as a way to not get it wrong ever again - meaning on test day.

Don't even worry about the practice scores.  Just take it for what it is and polish up on some procedures.  I got a 62 also, I'm not worried.  Back when I was studying for Sergeant (2011) I took the Key rewrite of the 07 Sgts exam and got a 37 the Monday before the exam.  I freaked out, but I buckled down and passed.  Don't be discouraged.

 

I believe the rewrite was difficult and found myself scratching my head on a few of the questions.  George also said during the Cram this past weekend that the original exam was extremely tough.
