Professional Entry Test Civil Service - update

how hard is the LA PET test? Is this going to be a breeze or is this a pretty hard civil service test? some of the questions looked pretty easy from the examples i saw

I hope so. I was looking at some of the practice questions, too. Did you sign up to take it online? The website was malfunctioning for me when I was trying to schedule a test, so I'm stopping by the office tomorrow to schedule.

I remember a lot of logic questions.

The test's hardness may not be the real question for you. Unless your a 36 ACT'er, you're not likely going to ace the test. The key is to make sure you get a high enough grade for the position you are trying to qualify for. Different state jobs require different qualifying scores.

How difficult was the process to sign up online? I've created the application, but no next step shows up.

What? You didn't get a 100/100?

Honestly, TortiousTiger, you're probably at least a moderately bright guy. ACT score above 28 or more? If you scored 20-25 on the ACT, a score on the PET in the 75-85 range is likely.

That's cool. If I had it to do over again, I would have gotten some sort of science degree. Probably not a high salary but much more fulfilling career.

Yeah, not worried about money. Girlfriend (will be wife once college is over, been together for 6 years) is an accountant who's about to graduate from grad school and is taking tests to be an Internal Auditor. I've got no problems not being the breadwinner.

I have a letter from lsu with my address and birthday and social security number on it. My original SSN card was lost and I still haven't gotten a new one. Think this is good enough?
