                On my test, calculators were not allowed for the math portion. You can imagine then that the difficulty of the equations themselves isn't super high. But with that said, if you haven't done math by hand for years, you may want to brush up on your addition, subtraction, long division, etc... The questions had a lot to do with reading through scenarios with numbers and interpreting how to solve it.

                For the logical reasoning portion, I would say the best thing to do is to learn the rules. For example, what could be possible answers if you saw statements with "some" vs "all", what happens when you see a double negative, etc...

                Good luck on the test!
                Thank you for the advice!

Use the study guides that CBP have online and practice over and over. At least that is what I did. Try no to panic if you are running out of time. Also use the breaks, that help me to rest my mind.
                  Thank you for the advice!

It's one of the biggest in the country. It's currently under construction to add lanes (62 by 2020) and some administration buildings. I've lived there my whole life so I had a place to stay. However, a guy I trained with was from Los Angeles stayed in a hotel for a week but then met a guy who rents out a house to CBP employees only. 350$ for the month. I could try and get his contact information for you. At pre-academy you'll fill out a lot of paperwork, get tours, go shooting, and do a ton of VLCs. We finished our required training early so we worked with the K-9 unit a bit. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me.

                    What other places are good to eat? We've only really had Southern Soul other than the Target shopping center restaurants. We are sick of the chow food lol.
                    i sent you a PM. Im not sure if have your PMs turned on

                              • Hey guys. I just recently received the email to start the backgorund investigation. Just 2 questions of you guys can help me.

                                1. Do they really need the physical address of your creditors for the financial disclosure report?
                                2. Do I have to get my fingerprints done in a police precint? or I can go to a private company that provides that as a service? I am aware that I will need to use the card provided by CBP.

                                Any information will be appreciated! Thanks!
