    Good evening everyone, newbie here. I'm set to take the assessment here in just under a couple weeks. I've been studying up using the guide they provide when you sign up for your day. I have also Googled a bunch and found some more logic based reasoning questions online.

    For those that have "been there and done that," any other ideas on what to study up with?

    Thank you and have a good night!
    I just passed the test today. I just read the booklet once and took the test. Was pretty straight forward. I didn't study anything else, but I have taken a lot of fed tests, so I was kinda prepared already. Good luck to you!

    • Thanks for the reply!

      I've taken two other federal tests years ago that were sort of similar. One I passed and the other I failed.

      Any advice is greatly appreciated!

            Hahha. Trust me, I want you all to know. I used to be a member of a visa forum where members gave every update including the date USPS stamped the letter from immigrations.

            I plan on being as thorough. Until I'm no longer "competing" (aka selected or not), I have to be reserved haha. Who knows who's watching and competing for the same office as I am.

              • Scheduled FO assessment. Does anyone know how long it takes? It may run into my swing shift if it's a good amount of hours.

                  Mine starts at 10, and I was told to bring lunch. So.. I'm guessing 3 hours minimum easily.

                  • Got my FO Assessment scheduled, glad I won't have to take AL to go. Good luck to everyone.

                    • Scheduled my FO assessment as well. I was told to expect to be there the entire day.

                      Silly question maybe, but where do I find out the location of my field office. The Air Marshal who called me told me it would be listed on my Dashboard but I cannot seem to locate it.

                        Sit tight. They will let you know.

                            For I didn't make it past the panel this morning
                            ​​​They make you sign an NDA so I won't share the questions..

                            However, you'll know if you are doing well.
                            if the panelist needs to keep asking you to explain the "outcome" or needs clarification on the "consequence"... consistently...

                            And your physique doesn't match theirs....

                            Then you are gonna be fighting the battle

                              Sorry to hear that man. One of the things I consistently see in this forum is that this position (along with all Federal Law Enforcement Positions) is tough to get. Don't sell yourself short.

                              If if you don't mind me asking, what field office were you with? Only asking because I just took the FAB 3 days ago and they're checking my references now. I was expecting about a month between the FAB and interview, but by the looks of your timeline, they'll be scheduling the interview in the next few days. Obviously give or take time for the holidays

                                I interviewed at the San Francisco Field office. The process did move rather quick.
                                When she called on Tuesday to schedule the FO assessment she had openings at 9 am the following day (yesterday), and 9 and 10am today, and next week.

                                Given the type of job, I don't think the FAMS take the holidays off and the little time off they have, seniority takes the cake.

                                Right before I was shown the elevator, the 11am candidate showed up.
                                His stockiness guaranteed him better chances
