Math Test
« on: Jul 12, 2010, 09:08 »
I found this web site.  Its a timed math test very easy math problems, but just like the poss test it is timed.  It might help.

It's always a pleasure to see someone looking out for others!  Ya done good.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be patient and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.

I hopefully wont need one, but are you allowed to use a calculator on the POSS test?

No electronic calculators are allowed while taking the POSS test.  You can use your fingers and toes :)

I tried the forum search function in the POSS section of the forum, and came up with this message:

To add my own feedback; the test is exactly like the practice test on the eei web page.  There are several links in this thread to it with the user names and passwords needed.  No calculator allowed, but you do get scratch paper.

Just took the POSS a week ago.  Only thing I can suggest is to practice long division and be able to do it quickly.  You will use it a lot on the test.

Everything else is just based on your aptitude.  This is a test to see how you react in different situations and how fast you can solve a problem is a stressful situation.  There is A LOT of information here to help you with any other questions you have.  Good luck.  And use SEARCH!

I'm sure you are plenty smart, just not as experienced.

Click on "POSS & Other Tests" up above, then click in the  search box, and type "calculator", then click on the search button.  This thread and the other one should pop up.

FENOC math comprehension exam
« Reply #10 on: Jan 26, 2011, 12:08 »
Not looking for specifics just an idea.

Is anyone familiar with the Math Comprehension Exam administered by FENOC at Davis-Besse?

How high a degree of difficulty is it and what would be a good topic to start studying? I have already taken the MASS/POSS and passed, so if it is similar to that then right on.

Thanks for any info.

If your good with algebra and trig you'll be good.

Out of curiosity are you part of the Lakeland/Terra Tech program?

Hello
I took the PossC test last week and will be taking the aformentioned math test in about two weeks. Math is my best subject and I feel confident I may have only missed one or two on the math section and I completed the test. I bought a praxis 2 math study guide for becoming a math teacher and have looked it over the last few days.  But it seems a little too in depth, and I was wondering if there are any preparation suggestions for this test?  I have yet to recieve the study guide CD in the mail.  Does it cover everything I will be tested on, or is it just a base?

I have a BAS in Energy Management from Bismarck State, and currently work as an operator at a coal powered plant.  I have had an Ohio 3rd class license for about three years, do I possess adequate credentials? Additionally is a steam license required at a nuclear facility in Ohio, and will it be something that the interviewer will hold as a valuable asset?

Lastly, I also read something about attire.  To my Poss C test I wore a nice sweater and a pair of jeans with dress boats, should I do shirt and tie for this math test or do I only need to dress that way for the interview, if I pass?

Sorry my questions are so all over the place

Conversion Practice
« Reply #14 on: Jul 20, 2011, 06:25 »
I searched the forums and there isn't any mention of a possible conversions worksheet(s). Anyone have any or know of a place to find them via the web for really cheap? (free!!!)

Guess I could make up my own, but wouldn't know if I had the right answers.

Help??

You inspired me to dust off reference material I haven't looked at in years.  Check your Rad Health Handbook.  Mine contains many conversions, constants too!  I'd bet yours has the same info.   ;)

Like a sign from above, when I reached for the R.H.H. one of my copies of Gollnick fell open and out came a couple of wallet sized cards with conversions on one side and international units on the other.  Produced by Pacific Radiation Corp.

I think I'll put them on EBay.

What are you converting?!?!?

Since you seem to lean towards health physics I'll go out on a limb and direct you here;

http://www.radprocalculator.com/

Now you can check most conversion sheets you make for yourself for accuracy.

Writing up your own sheets is an effective way of cementing conversions in your head, it forces you to arrange things the way you process data.

Or you could just commit them to memory with a verbatim firehose.

Have fun,.... [coffee]

I'll try to scan the back of mine this weekend. IIRC it has a flash-to-bang and cloud height vs. time estimator.

I want to brush up on my mathematics skills like converting dpm to Ci or mSv to Rem.

I don't want a conversions data sheet, I already have a few of those. Just a worksheet that gives the problems and answers so I can do the work and check if I got them right. (Practice Practice Practice again!)

Yes my core is HP but I won't be answering HP questions alone for the core exam or the NUF, or even the NRRPT. The more comfortable I am with my conversions the better i will feel about the exams. (Performance I am magnificent at, I just get a moderate amount of test anxiety when doing written exams)


Are the site tests timed like the practice ones here on NW?

Nice find!

www.khanacademy.org is good for (re)learning/practicing math as well, but I had not found sections that closely mirror the POSS math sections.
