      Good luck. Test is similar to L.A. City.
      Took more time to complete because there are more questions.

          Just took it. Was way different than LA City. Was a pretty general aptitude test. Not that difficult, albeit only an hour and 40 minute time limit. Bet a lot of people didn't finish

                          Passing time is 9:34 or less, but I heard that if you don't have a couple min to spare and look like you're about to keel over at the end, you may not be getting called.
