      Yes, I would agree with recording, I've done two of the step tests. One for bp and one for customs. It sounds fast, but if your cardio is decent and you have pretty good eye hand coordination or I should say eye foot..... You'll be fine. Once the recording starts, just take the beat and keep it in your head. Up up down down up up ....... You'll get a pattern going and be all set. If you really want, you can go to your local gym and practice. Won't hurt. Hope this helps.

        I took mine in Cheektowaga on Genesee street. What's your current status?

        I'm pretty sure they counted the center line as a touch for me.

            They counted the center line as a touch on the side step test? I got screwed then if that is the case. My administrator only counted the outside lines as a touch and I think he shorted me one.

I guess I better start looking into highway patrol or something. Cbp is the only federal job I've actually been progressing since usss ud a couple years ago. Every other federal job I've never been referred. This sucks.
              If I were you, I would forget about CBP. It has to be the most mind numbing job ever. On top of that you get little respect from travelers and other agencies.

              In the long run, you will be happier with a highway patrol or local LE agency.

              Heed my warning! I work for the agency.

                Just keep on pushing! It's easier than what most make it out to be. The push ups, sit ups, side step and lift lower is super easy, especially if you pace yourself in regards to the push ups and sit ups. The step test could be your enemy if you have a tough time keeping tempo or are extremely out of shape (like moo moo out of shape) what I did was, I kept my arms moving to the up up down down cadence and pushed through. Don't worry, you'll be fine! Go kill it, there much waiting to do on the other side

                    Hey I go next week just wanted to clarify about the 3 mins. Do you for example do pushups rest 3 mins then situps then another 3 mins break? Etc or the only 3 mins break is at the end before the step test?

                      You get 3 mins between each. So push ups, 3 mins, side step, 3 mins, etc. It follows a CD from start to finish.

                          You should have no problem passing it. You will probably do better than anytime if you have practiced it.

                            • I have my medical (Fitness test) this Friday. My general question is What to wear?
                              Comfort clothes? No business attire?

                              • Regarding the exercises; Practice makes excellence. I have been practicing and I pretty sure anyone can pass that test if they do the same before taking it.

                                Never give up, stay positive and always keep your heads up. Good Luck.
