WOO HOO!

Using the great advice from this site, I am on my way to purchase a new suit and will return to start hitting the practice test to study up!

Thanks for all the help so far...I'll keep everyone posted.

Get an ASVAB book and take the practice exams.

Good luck, though I'm certain you won't need it.

Thanks Mike.

I went through the practice exam, no sweat really, but add to that to the anxiety of the day and I am sure it will be all I can handle.

I am going to memorize those conversions, that's for sure.  I forgot about the basic algebra section, and the practice test doesnt really address it either.  I need to brush up I reckon!

Do yourself a favor. Get an ASVAB Book. Take one of the tests in it just as you normally would.
Take the next test and give yourself a time limit 5 minutes less than you took test 1.
Keep doing this, it'll give you a great feel for the POSS.

I was able to do well in the math section.  Went through the first time doing all the problems I could in my head first, then worked on the problems that I needed to figure out on paper....

Good to have ya' back ... TaterHead.  I just couldn't get used to calling you LaGrange. 

I guess its because I fly in there so much.  And, it doesn't remind me of a CatFish. 

I have caught plenty of catfish in West Point Lake there!

I know this is an old thread. I haven't seen anybody ask this question so I figured I would here. Are the POSS practice exams completely inadequate? They remind me of the ASVAB. The ASVAB was an easy test and I do not understand why a regular employer would use this instead of a real test of some sort (i.e. something asking about theory). Is the POSS an essay exam? Also is the only way to take the POSS via an employer? I would like to take the exam so i can tell them I scored this and have EEI send the results directly to them.

Each employer administers the POSS themselves.  Utilities may share the results with other locations, particularly in the case of fleets (Exelon, Entergy).  In most cases, however, you would have to take the POSS at whichever utility you are applying at.  I've not heard of anyone taking it under the scenario you described.  If someone has I'm sure they'll weigh in.

Best of luck with your life after your service.  Thanks for your service to our country, & Welcome to Nukeworker!

Thank you for being friendly I was worried that I would get flamed or someone would tell me to search.
