Well, just got my results today for the fire exam. A 94. Im very dissapointed since I got two 99's in a row. I felt that I did bad on the test after I took it anyway. Oh well hopefully Ill do good on the next police test in 2005.

oh yeah this is my first post so hello to all

Well if you bombed, then i completely bombed. I got a 90, first time taking it though, so I was pretty happy wiith myself. I basically only took it to have an understanding of how the police exam worked.

The PO exam should be in April 2005. The format is very similar to the fire exam with the memorization( 5 min map), reading comp,100 mult. choice, etc.

According to my FS professor all civil service tests are the same. Essentially the state makes one test and just replaces cruiser with fire truck,dump truck, mail truck etc.

He said take as many as you can, PD,FD,DPW,USPS etc etc.... for practice.

How do you think I feel BILLJ; I Scored a 95, but NO RESIDENCY PREFERENCE!! ARGHHH (Yes, I’m shouting!) :up: :BM: :up: :BM: :up: :BM:
I lived 25 years in Tewksbury and nothing to show for it from a CS perspective… Why did I move north?
Was it the taxes? The ultra liberal politics? The nepotism? Oh the frustration… :-({|=
Time to kick my own ass....

I scored a 99 in both the 1992 & 1995 MA FF Exams, so I’m a little curious myself.
The format hadn’t changed to my knowledge. But I had a few this time around that I knew I hadn't answered correctly. Maybe its the milage... :HS:

Good luck to all anyway, hopefully you’ll have some success… :thumbup:

Heard that statewide there's barely been any FF hiring going on over the last two years. Boston has supposedly hired only 5 ff's since summer 2002.And that is the biggest city by a mile! Layoff list is probably still huge. Tough times for anyone who wants that job and at 65 dollars a pop its an expensive practice.

Not sure about other cities, but Newton put on about 15 in April, and they have another class in the academy now.
