    How long will it take to complete this exam? I need to figure out if I can get off work for it.

      TEA was way harder than Phase 1 with the FBI. Phase 1 is strange...almost feel like it is scored with flow charts and algorithms rather than black and white right/wrong. I can't explain it, you just gotta see it for yourself.

        FBI Phase doesn't have math, so if you suck at math its much easier compared to TEA

          I took the TEA back in May. It took a little over 3 hours. Fortunately I had the day off from work. The math section was difficult.

            Thanks.

            I just started a new job, and I am not sure I can get time off considering I am in my initial training period. It probably would not go over well, if my employer knew they were just a filler job until I get hired as a FED.

              I have a test date in approx. 2 weeks. Any suggestions? I've read reviews for several different study guides and they all seem to contain the same critics. Recommendations/Suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Also, if you have veteran's preference points, do they count towards your final test results (score)?

                Hey folks,
                Just wondering, if you have veteran's preference points, do they count towards your final test results (score)?

                  The USSS doesn't "score" the TEA. It is a non-competitive exam, and you only have to pass it. There is no ranking to be gained from the TEA, and if I remember right from my interviews, your vet points come up during the hiring panel.

                      Quick question for those that have taken the test. Are the math questions all posed in a scenario based format (e.g. officer A is travelling at 65 mph, while his backup, officer B, is travelling at 70 mph, but is 8 miles further than officer A. Will they arrive at the same time?), or are some questions scenario, while others are straight up algebra formula (e.g. 3x +(9-10) = 40; solve for x)?

                        All,
                        For curiousity purposes, how (if possible) can we request our test results?
