    Still testing at different departments? Yes. Let's see the first test I passed was CPD 2013, but they still haven't gotten to my lottery number yet. Getting closer but not there yet. That was December 2013.

    Then I started testing in May 2014 with suburban PD'S and continued forward since then. So I've been actively and agressivley testing for the last 7 months and I'm on exactly 12 different eligibility lists so far. 12 of them including CPD haven't DQ'D me or got to me yet but they will give me a shot soon enough. And I've gained more experience in the hiring process with a few other departments already, not including those 12 I'm currently on the list for. I've heard many people tell me stories of testing at about 50 different departments before getting on.

    So I've just assessed what's holding me back, it's called not a damn thing. Who would of thunk it?
    Damn.. I have some catching up to do. Next time CPD tests I'll be there. I missed the last test. I'm about to take my 7th & 8th tests soon. Working it up!

      Just left the Oakbrook Terrace exam, I felt I did better this time around with how fast I went through the exam and finished almost all sections compared to last September. So we shall see when the official results come in.

          Totally agree. I am improving my COPS written exam skills from when I last took it, this COPS exam may not be so bad after all. It just takes some real speeding through each question and each time you'll get better at it. Yeah I figured 70 would be passing too.

              same here. I felt that I did better than before as well. Around 100 people showed up, so there may be only a small amount who pass. That eligibility list may be pretty small!!

              Goodluck to everyone!!!
