    I don't think Arlington gives military bonus because they're not civil service so there's no requirement to give bonus points. As far as answering questions I typically stick to agree or disagree. Like I said though it seems that there are different right and wrongs at diferent tests.

      i took the test too...i felt pretty good about it...the personality section seems to be a pretty big part of the overall score...i answered honestly to every question so hopefully it pays off...i am dying to see the results though...also this process seems like its gonna move right along...i wonder how many they are going to hire

        From what I've heard its somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-20. Seems like a lot but Arlington has about 40% or so of the department up for retirement over the next 3-4 years.

          Also based on the hiring process pace, as mentioned above, that seems to indicate the probablity of hiring a larger number of ppl. If they were only going for 1 or 2n you would think they would move slower and really analyze each candidate. I for one am thrilled that they are moving at a quicker pace, I have taken part in some before that moved slower than christmas. At least this way we will know where we stand quickly and not agonize over if we are still in it or not.

            Im dumb i didnt even think about the civil service aspect. So that does infact mean they can play with the scores however they choose huh...

              So when giving your exams back when you were done did you guys see what all the markings were on the sign in/out they had. I saw written in red 75's and different numbers in different columns and stuff. Did i miss something when i turned mine in?!?

                      I believe I know what one you're talking about...I think it was the question that asked the total number of steps and each floor had a set of zig-zag stairs (or something like that).

                      I remember the numbers being like 12 steps per set and there were 4 floors (numbers might vary if there were different formats). The key was to realize that you did not need to multiple the 12 by 2 for each floor, but that the 12 represented all steps per floor. So it was just a basic 12*4 = 48. At first I did 12*2*4 = 96 and that wasn't one of the answers so I re-read and decided 48 was the most appropriate answer.

                      I've taken up to calculus 2 in college so I felt extremely confident in the math section.

                      I made the top 250 so now I'm looking forward to the run Friday morning. See y'all out there!

                        After looking at the scores, I barely missed the cut. From what I could see, 93.01 was the lowest score that advanced. I made a 92.99, 2 100ths of a point! I have taken this test two other times and scored a 96 and change each time...

                        Good luck to those that advanced. I probably would have died on the 1.5 mile run!

                          Nick, that was the conclusion that I came to on the stair question. I thought 96 was the correct answer, but it seemed that 48 was the next best thing.

                          Anyways I made it in the top 250 as well, so I will see yall at the run. It is supposed to be bright and sunny on Thursday so I'm looking forward to a nice jog in that Texas heat!

                                I ended up getting a 100 on it, which the test was real similar to mesquite's and ft worths. I wanna think i chose 72 as the answer on the stairs one, but i originally thought it was 90somthing as well, but then redid it and came up with 72. I also know I mispelt one of the words, but somehow made a 100..so not sure how their scoring system works and if they omit certain quetsions or what. I'm running friday at 9am, c yall there.
