        I would hate seeing the PT/DT guys bright and early in my tight *** stained sweatpants wondering whose going to **** up the hard deck haha. Classic. I was up there for the first time for training for body cams and walked passed the gym like, uh no thanks. Kept it moving haha.

        Burpees! 400! Ready! Begin!

        Well said dutch.

    • The first two weeks are the hardest. Focus, hold that push up position and laugh (quietly) in your room when you get the chance . Study hard and in a few years you’ll be home and making six figures.

            • What do you guys think is more challenging, military boot camp or Trooper academy?

                It depends on alot of factors. As someone who went through Marine Corps boot camp, I thought the Trooper academy was more difficult, due to the 13 weeks vs. 6 months, and I had a kid during the academy, which made the family separation more difficult. Physically, its likely that MC, Army, and coast guard boot camp is more difficult, while the trooper academy is more intellectually difficult, as you are getting a bachelors degree level education in 6 months.

                I should add that almost no one "fails" physically. People quit because they are psychologically weak, or not committed or intelligent enough to pass the tests (they are not that hard). 99% of people voluntarily quit or academically fail (less then 5%).

            • Wonder how the first week went. If anyone is there and willing/allowed to give us some information but yea overall, stay strong and you guys are that much closer to the end!!!!!

              • I’m assuming those processing invites will go out this week.

                • processing for those that just need a undated background investigation or for those that are going out for their fitness test? Also, what makes you say that?

                    The next processing weekend is supposed to be for the fitness test/very beginning of the process... psych, pt etc.. if they hold it.

                    I don't know when notifications will go out for it but the recruiter said the processing would be next month.

                    845Trooper I'm going to assume they'll give people a month notice so at this rate i think we're looking at late October into November. Don't think they'd do a week or so in advance. Too little time

                • Does anyone have any recommendations on study material? I saw the one they provided when I signed up for the newest test, but any extra recommendations would be appreciated.

                    I haven't read through the entire study guide they provided, but the sample questions I've done so far seem to be in line with a lot of other NY state-created PD exams I've taken in the last few weeks. The "New York State Trooper Exam Guide" on Amazon is a collection of good practice questions, with some really tricky ones in there. I've heard good things about Barron's Police Officer Exam guide, but I've yet to crack that book open. I haven't taken any exam prep courses, like Sgt. Godoy or CCS Test Prep, so I can't make a recommendation but they can get expensive.

                    IMO it's a bit like the SATs where you can't really "study" for the exam in the traditional sense. Getting familiar with the types of questions they're going to ask and refreshing your mind on test-taking strategies is the most you can really do.

                    I have used Norman Hall's, Barron's, and Kaplan. My favorite has been the Kaplan as far as relevant info and quality of questions. I have not taken a NYSP exam yet so I'm not certain how those books pertain. If the layout is what Shakados says then I would say Barron's and Kaplan would be the best, for me anyway.

                • Anyone else following NYSP on Instagram? Very cool, that’s going to be us soon.

                  • Anyone else have a letter from NYSP in their informed delivery?

                      Yeah I did, 12pm slot. That makes me a little less stressed out though. Maybe its more info about a possible second academy?

                      So yea I did the 12 pm slot as well and didn’t make this class . I’m thinking it maybe a letter just saying we didn’t make this class or the backfill but be prepared for the next one

                      Same for me. Guess we will find out, maybe more people are getting it and/or someone on here will get it before my mailman drops it off

                      Letter says that even though we were not called for this academy we are still being considered for the spring 2022 academy and that we will be contacted to update backgrounds and for another medical processing

                  • How many people went to the medical in august but didnt get into this academy?
