      • I may be getting divorced soon. Until I move to my own place, I am concerned my wife will intercept my mail, e.g. BPA mail. Since I do not want my mail delivered to my current address and I do not have a new place to live, I am looking into purchasing a PO box. Do you foresee any issues with having my mail sent to a PO box, e.g. e-QIP forms?

            That sucks. I would call MHC and find out if that will hurt you. I can only wager a guess but I would think that they would need a residential address for verification purposes. Again, that is only a guess. Give MHC a call at 952-857-2910 and find out FOR SURE before you do anything.

I think in both of our cases it was due to stress or anxiety (being told I was late by the instructor as a joke probably didn't help ). Now I have to get it checked on 3 separate occasions by my doctor and I'm hoping to get scheduled on the PFT2 later this week to meet my original EOD of 8/22 at Yuma, AZ.

                Unfortunately I don't know what is going to happen because I can't get a hold of anyone at the Hiring Center. If anyone has insight on this situation, please let me know what to expect.

                Thanks for posting your times, now I have something to beat.
                Has anyone else failed the PFT2 due to high blood pressure? My situation was cleared by my doctor and the Hiring Center's Medical Case Nurse. I'm wondering if that puts me back into TSU or some stage prior to that. If anyone else had a similar experience, please let me know how it went for you.

                    • Hi Everyone!

                      My name is Erika and I currently live in upstate NY but I am orginally from MA. I am taking my BPA test in West Seneca, NY on 9/9/2011. I was supposed to take it in October, but my boss couldn't give me the date off. I really need some pointers and guidelines, considering it is coming up so fast. I would apperciate anyones feedback. Thanks again.

                      • hi Erika,

                        I am taking the exam 9/14 in nyc. What i would suggest is try to get some exposure with practice tests and try to time yourself. for example, what i do with logical reasoning is i would give myself about 25 questions and give myself 2 mins a question to check my speed. Since we have very little time left, i would say to go to your library and try these two books out if you can get them. "Border Patrol Exam 4th Edition" by learning express, and also get "Border patrol exam artificial language test prep" by learning express. fortunately, my library gives me pdf files i can download from their site,so i don't need to move around.

                        Also honorfirst.com got great tips on everything border patrol related , so that should be another valuable source.

                                Hey Erika!

                                I took the test in West Seneca back in January. Not sure how far you have to travel for it. It took me a whole 10 minutes to drive there from my house.

                                Try here: http://www.honorfirst.com/Study%20Guide.pdf

                                and here: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Bor...:9781576856727

                                These are the two that helped me get a 96 with no vet points. The book (second link) has, I think, 3 practice exams in it. Read the study guide first. It offers great advice on how to REALLY LOOK at the question to determine the most logical answer. I took about 15 questions a night for the 5 nights leading up to the exam and it was very helpful. Walked into the exam all kinds of confident.

                                As far as the ALT, same thing, read the study guide and KNOW YOUR GRAMATICAL RULES! The gramatical rules cheat sheets are invaluable and you will be given one during the test. Again, choose a handful of questions and mix them up as you study so you don't end up doing the same questions twice. Best of luck to you!
