I studied the Delta Gouge. Did not help me though. It was not the Job Knowledge Test that threw me off. It was the Cog test. I made quite a few errors on more than one of the "games" and I'm pretty sure thats what DQed me. Then there was a question I did not even finish because I ran out of time. It was, there are 580 seniors in a high school class. Seventy percent of them graduate. Of those, thirty percent go to college. How many students go to college? Without a pencil and paper or calculator, this was going to take me longer then the (what felt like) 20 seconds i had to answer. I had 70 percent of 580 figured out in my head and it went on to the next question. I was pissed. That did not help either. If it skips to the next question, stay calm and focus on the current question. Don't dwell on the last one because there is nothing you can do to change your answer.
Also the cog test takes into account how fast you can answer the questions. I was being too careful on being 100 accurate. I should of been answering quicker.
I also did not fully understand one of the games. and I got the first five wrong right off the bat before I realized what I was doing wrong. Stupid on my part. I should of read the directions more carefully. So if you go to take these tests. Read the instructions VERY carefully.
The good news is that I have thought about what I was doing wrong and I thought of some strategies that will help if I ever get another interview. That being said, they would not tell me what i did poorly on or which test I failed. All they told me is I can reapply in 6 months. Oh well I'm off to Republic November 1st for the Q400. No more Pinnacle, YAY!
