These tests have not changed.  Just general employee training.

I would try for a Jr HP slot.  When talking with the recruiter, let them know that you have some trepidation regarding the testing and discuss a fall back plan into the deconner slot.  If you can get that agreement, it would be better for restarting your career.  If you can't get that, go for the decon job.  However, you should have this type of talk to open up your goal of getting back into HP.  It takes way too long to rise through the ranks as it is, you do not want to start over if you can help it.

If math is your biggest problem, review the first two lessons for the DOE Core exam.  They cover basic math up through the simple algebra and logs you will need for the Nuclear Fundamentals exam.  The DOE lessons are a good review for the NFU exam since DOE tends to stress the math a little more.  Once you're a little more comfortable with the math, review the other NFU lessons to get ready for the answers on that exam.  If you decide to start with a decon slot, ask one of the sharper Sr. Techs to help you get ready for the exam.  It's a great way for them to get ready, too.

Always remember: the mechanic's car is the last one fixed and the plumber's pipes are the last ones to be repaired.  Don't ask your husband - the two of you are too close for a proper fostering relationship.  Get one of the other seniors to help you.  There once was a Jr. Tech/Deconner I've worked with who's husband is one of the sharpest techs I've ever worked with.  But he couldn't teach her and she wouldn't listen to him as a teacher.  So, avoid that problem and get one of the sharper non-related techs to help get you up on the step for the exam.

My experience with trying to teach a wife or significant other is that they believe they are in charge and tend not to listen. Best to let them get training elsewhere and just answer questions when they ask, like a good little boy.  :)
