    Nypd Jst Tutoring

    Can anyone tell me what to expect at the JST tutoring? I am thinking of scheduling that before taking the actual test again. Thanks.

    I failed one part. I guess I was wrong that they would allow me to cover the entire course during the tutoring so that I would go on to the actual test with confidence?

    I failed the fence but now I know I would pass that part with flying colors. Purchased a 20lb weighted vest last year and have been practicing up at my local part. No problem whatsoever. I have a trainer at the gym for the past 6 months that has been working with me on upper body strength and running. I'm sure I am good to go. I was just thinking about going to the tutoring to see how it actually feels to take the test. I want to be 100% certain that I can pass it this time.


    I am a female just FYI. LOL

    If you have the time go to the tutoring. Even if you can't do a complete run through of the JST, just getting a feel for any part of it and seeing it can take same ease off for the real one.

    Here's a tip for the fence. Stay to the left of the fence. The fence on the right is sunk in which makes the fence harder to get over. A lot of people at my JST were going to the right.

    Just an FYI for everyone the fence that is sunk in is at the Staten Island JST, the JST I took at the academy a week ago was a newer fence not sunk in at all.

    That's cool. I practiced for many months getting over the fence before taking the JST but was not expecting it to be so flimsy on the actual test. Now I am prepared for the worst fence conditions, LOL, but that advice is appreciated. Glad to hear they got a new one! :-)
