        Has anyone taken the prep course by civil service success before or know anything about it? They are offering prep classes for the test in the summer before the test dates in September.

            I don't know anything about the course but I'm not sure what else they could tell us about the exam that isn't already in the JoinFDNY video below. It is still very tempting though lol

                      I watched the video that was posted and there was no memorization section..does that mean they took it away for the upcoming exam or it just wasnt featured in the video? There was also another forum stating that the personality questions are graded as well. Is this true? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.

                        Correct. There wasn't a memorization component on the last exam. I believe that portion was taken out because it was decided that it gave some people an advantage. From what it seems the exam is what's in that video plus the personality questions, which was graded in the last exam, so it most likely will be for this one. The Vulcan Society held sessions to prepare for the last exam (2000), so if they do that again we will have a better understanding of 7001. There is a guy on the 2000 thread that can email anyone the study guide from the Vulcan Society for exam 2000 if anyone is interested. Hope this helps!

                          Appreciate the response..I think its kinda rediculous that the personality questions can be graded towards your final score essentially based on opinion. Would anyone know how the best way to answer the questions are? Thanks again.

                            Answer the way you think they want to hear. In other words, answer as if you are the nicest person in the world and a saint.

                              Yeah similar to what First Due said, they want a person who is happier, more generous, and nicer than anyone else, and also enjoys working as a part of a team. It won't always be super simple or easy Ex.) "I am happier than my friends" do you look worse if you're a sad person or if you associate with sad people? I'd much rather a memory component but whatever lol
