    The dept I'm testing with offered an orientation (which I attended) and a fully-timed practice session (which I took...8:40) and I'm scheduled next Friday for the official CPAT.

    I can tell you, I was a little nervous at the practice session....so I really have no idea how nervous I'll be at the actual. But if I do something stupid, can I still technically pass since I received a passing time at the practice session?

    I have to think that if I screw the pooch at the actual CPAT, I am out.
    Nope, like I mentioned, you get an orientation here and no practice. They give you ample opportunity to see it on video and walk through each station. Kind of like the written; they give you an idea of what to expect but don't show you the questions.
    Vita brevis; terra larga.

      if you passed with a time of 8:40 on the practice you should be good for the actual test. just stay positive and stay in shape and you should do fine. the last time i took it i had about a second to spare...way too close for comfort but hey, a pass is a pass.

        Dont my state taxes pay for the proctors? I would think they do in some way. I know it is paying for the electricity to run that building.

          Im sure the taxes are kicked in somewhere ie. building maintanence, electricity, gas , prolly some of the equipment. The cost of having so many proctors for all of the 5 dates is picked up by the application fee and prolly a small portion of taxes.
