  • Just took the Psych today. You don't really need your intake packet. It just asks you:

    What schools you attended / from what years (month & year) / if you graduated / were you expelled.
    What jobs you had / when you worked there (month & year) / disciplinary action against you? / were you fired?
    When you received your license & if there are any restrictions on it & be able to explain what they are.
    If you ever saw a therapist, psychiatrist, or any doctor of the same sorts for any reason.
    If you were in any branch of the military & if you had any disciplinary action against you.

    Just be able to give an explanation if there are any yes answers. I think that's it unless anyone can think of something to add. That portion literally takes 4 minutes to fill out & it's at the end of the test.

    The test is about 568 questions give or take. You leave after you finish it.

      So I had the medical yesterday. There were 21 of us & 1 person passed the stairs, & everyone seemed to have a number in the 2300s. This guy Frank working there said the whole month of February & half of March theyre processing FF candidates at least 20 a day every day. So 6 more weeks of AT LEAST 100 candidates a week & seeing as I'm 23xx, the medicals should break 3000.

      Biggest tips I can give: take your pulse yourself & see where you stand in a resting state. If you're below 70, do a little jog in place right before you do your EKG to raise it because if you're less than 70, the chances of you passing are pretty bad. Ex. The guy in the best shape yesterday had a resting rate of 52 & got a 127 max rate in 3 minutes so he failed. Another guy was nervous & had a resting rate of 92, after 3 minutes he had 160 & he passed & put the vest on.. You see how ridiculous that works? So up your beat before taking the EKG, remember that.. When you get the 5:12 with the vest, breathe through your nose & breathe slowly & deeply. Try to do 3 or 4 steps inhale / 3 or 4 steps exhale, you need a rhythm. Focus on positive thoughts & tell yourself to keep a low heart rate.

      You should be out by 2.. Earlier, if people just take a quick lunch.

      Oh, also, it was mentioned before but if you have your TB immunization, bring record of it because it'll save you from needing to see a doctor within 3-4 days. I got the shot yesterday & need to see a doctor on Friday or Saturday & either fax the medical office or bring them a signed letter saying that a doctor has okayed me. You can go to the metrotech medical to get it done if you have time.

              I remember from a while ago, people said during a later step (I think the psych) a "cheat sheet" would be extremely helpful from the information that we provided in an earlier step. Can anyone shed some light on this?

The Intake packet you fill out with all the schools you attended, jobs you've had, any police involvement to include moving violations, with dates for everything shows up again on the psych. I believe the places you've lived is on there as well. Either way, filling out the intake packet can be a pain as you are constantly trying to remember dates and places. Imagine turning that in and after answering like 1 million multiple choice questions they ask you to do it again off the top of your head. I saw some guys made a copy of their intake packet. They used the info as a cheat sheet. It was brilliant. I just had to tough it out by memory. No one during my psych got in trouble for it, though I couldn't tell you if it is officially allowed, but it couldn't hurt to make a copy and when you get there, ask if you can take it out.

                    TBH, I studied really hard for this test. On exam 2000 I got a 98. I made a few mistakes on that test though, like not taking notes all 3 times watching the video and a few other things with the personality part. This time around I took notes all 3 times while watching the video and studied the personality part more. I honestly feel like i got 103-105 (including residency points). My protest session is November 4rth. I will see how i did then. cant wait for the actual list to come out. Goodluck everyone.

                      I made a few mistakes because I was nervous as hell takin the exam. More nervous than I?ve ever been takin any other city exam. Think that?s mainly because I want the job badly. I was def able to catch 4 mistakes and correct them..hope I was able to land at least a 100

                      • I took it on 10/2 and I think I did pretty good, I actually studied my *** off, went to the FDNY Study Sessions, and paid $40 bucks for the Jobtestprep.com, I think it was worth it, the questions weren't exactly the same formatting but it does get you in the same mindset you need while taking the exam, also I feel like it gave me a refresher and woke up some brain cells lol just got my mind thinking and reading the questions and answers better and clearer. I think it definately helped with the personality portion of it, although again the questions werent the same, it gave me the same idea of how to answer them. I literally was the last person to walk out of the room, I felt like the 2 ladies there were like waiting for me thinking "WTF bro FINISH!" But this is the most important test I'll ever take so I took my sweet time and went back on each section to make sure I didnt miss any questions or that I read every question correctly which was useful because there was like 1 or 2 questions that stated "Choose MORE THAN ONE answer" and I had only chosen one. I even took the Survey at the end, they said you didn't have to but I took it anyways, honestly it looks like it somehow would be included in the actual test because it asked some more personality questions and like reasons why you want to join FDNY. This is literally like my #1 priority right now. I am going to the review session on 11/4 so I can kind of gauge how I did, depending how many questions I got wrong, I'll have a pretty good idea of what the score should be.

                        Hopefully I got atleast a 95 or 96 so that I could range about a 100 or 101 with the residency points but ofcourse I hope i got 100 so I could get a 105.

                        I am really curious to see how many people there will be with Legacy credits, I feel like there will be less people with the legacy credit this time around. I hope so! So that more of us can have a shot

                        Best of Luck to Everyone though, I wish we could all get it.

                        • I think we can all agree that using your social security number to determine your spot on the list is stupid and unfair, like those are things we can't control. I feel like a fair way would have been to use the date & time you applied to take the exam. I applied the first week they posted it up. It should be based on how quickly you jumped on it which reflects how bad you wanted this job.

                            • I feel like I did good. I watched each video three times and took notes all three times. I went to the FDNY tutorial session and they said to not take notes the first time around. I feel like telling folks that was a mistake... as taking notes the first time really helped me to clarify them with the remaining two chances to watch the video. I'm just waiting on the FDNY investigator to contact me, though I am not sure how long or when that will happen.
