Has anyone received any paper work from them, as far as where they are going to take the test, etc...? I signed up for the exam about 1.5-2 months ago and I have not heard anything from them.

Stay Safe.

My understanding is that if you signed up via the internet, your notice to appear will be available on-line two weeks prior to the exam.

I don't recall how far in advance they send out the notices if you sent in the application via snail mail.

In re-reading the the announcement, the notice to appear will be sent 4 weeks prior to the exam. If you are looking to get law enforcement experience credit, the form will be available on-line around the 18th of March or so.

Hope this is helpful.

Holy good God... five hours for that exam? Is that really accurate? Anyone recall how long the MSP exam was in '02... I thought it was about 3 hours... including the time they kept us in the Centrum's stadium seating rotting for about an hour.

Cowboy, you have to figure that due to the streamlined process and stunning quickness of the Massachusetts Civil Service division, 4 hours and 55 minutes will be for waiting in line, processing, instructions, etc, and five minutes will be remaining for the test. :lol: :lol:

If you finish early, do you have to wait until everyone is finish?
Once you finish, you are free to leave. 100 questions actually goes by pretty fast, if you are in there for more than 1 and 1/2 hours, maybe you should re-think your career aspirations.

Robocop, I'm an especially big fan of the "Hurry up and wait" process... I hope they do that at the Civil Service exam... that would be wonderful. I got Doherty High in worcester as my testing site... anyone else?

According to the HRD's Website notices have been sent, and if you are register on the site, you can view them! Just like soxrocks said, if it takes you more than 1.5 hrs to complete, then it might not be your thing. They say 5 hrs for the entire process. But you get 3 hrs for the test itself, the long process is listening to the proctor go thru the procedures. Good luck everyone, see those of you who are taking it at Plymouth North HS!
