3 Dear Applicant: Thank you for applying for a position with the Village of Schaumburg Fire Department. This letter contains important information about the written aptitude test. You should read this letter carefully to be sure that you understand the procedures that will be used during the administration of the written test. The department has received more applicants than there are available positions. As a result, the department has established a competitive application process. This application process is designed to ensure that the selection of new recruits will be accomplished in a fair and objective fashion. The written aptitude test will be administered on Saturday, February 21, 2015, at Harper College in Rooms E106/107/108 (located at 1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine, IL). Instructions for the study period will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Applicants who arrive after 9:00 a.m. may be excluded from the test session. TESTING SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY 1:30 PM. The schedule for the written aptitude test is as follows: 15 minutes Instructions for Study Period 2 hours Study Period 15 minutes Break 15 minutes Check-in for Examination Period 15 minutes Instructions for Exam 1 ½ hours Examination A description of the written aptitude test procedures is presented below. Please examine these procedures to ensure that you fully understand them, since each applicant has the responsibility of informing the department of any difficulties or problems created by these procedures. Applicants who wish to report any concerns about these procedures should contact the department no later than one week prior to the examination date. The study session will begin immediately after the completion of the registration period. The instructions for the study session will be read aloud by a test monitor. During the study session, each applicant will be given two (2) hours to study a variety of printed materials. These materials will include printed text, line drawings, written instructions, and pictures. These study materials are the 2 P age

4 basis for the aptitude test which will be administered during the afternoon session. Applicants are allowed to make written notes about the study materials. However, these notes must be written on paper which will be provided by the test monitor. Also, each applicant must turn in his/her notes to the test monitor at the conclusion of the study session. During the study session, you may take as many breaks as you would like. Please note, however, that these breaks will shorten the amount of time that you will have for studying. You may leave early from the study session. However, once you decide to leave from the study session, you must turn in your materials and you will not be allowed back until the registration period for the test. Applicants will be given ½ hour break. Food will not be provided. Instead, you will be required to provide your own snack. You may want to bring food with you (i.e., granola bars). The test session will begin with the re-registration of each applicant. Instructions for the test will be read aloud by the test monitor. The test will require that applicants read printed materials and record their answers on an optically scanned computer sheet. Applicants will be required to use a pencil to record their answers. You will have one and a half (1 ½) hours to complete the written examination. All questions on the examination will be drawn directly from materials provided during the morning study session. You must learn the study materials presented earlier to do well on the examination. Note this important instruction: You will not be allowed to take the exam if you did not attend and register for the morning study session. Do not bring notebooks or other study materials with you to the testing site. All necessary materials, including note paper, will be provided to you. Below are some tips which might help to make your test date more comfortable and successful: 1) Answer every question on the test, even if you have to guess - there is no penalty for guessing. 2) Take your time - there should be plenty of time in both the study session and the test period. 3) Bring snacks or money to buy food - lunch will not be provided. 4) Listen carefully to the monitor's instructions. 5) Make certain that your answers are entered into the correct spaces on the answer sheet. 3 P age

Testing will require a total of 4 ½ hours, so be sure to wear comfortable clothing. Also, you should bring along a picture identification such as a driver's license. Smoking will not be allowed in the study/examination room(s). However, applicants may take as many breaks as they wish during the study session. If you need additional information or wish to report a difficulty associated with the testing procedures, contact Nanette Burns at (847) Sincerely, Village of Schaumburg Board of Fire and Police Commissioners (MORE) 4 P age

7 GENERAL PREPARATION TIPS FOR THE WRITTEN EXAMINATION 1. ON THE DAY OF TESTING A) Wear comfortable clothing B) Arrive early C) Get a good rest the night before D) Eat a good meal before you arrive 2. LEARNING THE STUDY GUIDE A) You must put in a lot of study time. The study session is scheduled to last for two (2) hours.

C) Pay particular attention to the instructions of each section. D) Write an outline - you cannot use your notes during the exam but writing an outline will help you to memorize and organize the material. E) Test yourself on the material - think of the types of questions which will be asked on the exam (reading it through is not enough to really learn it). 3. WHILE TAKING THE EXAM A) Take your time - The written exam is scheduled for 1 ½ hours, which should be more than enough time to complete the exam. However, it is your responsibility to complete your test within the allotted time period. B) Don't get stuck on any one question - if you don't know an answer, leave the question and come back to it later C) If you don't know an answer, then guess - there is no additional penalty for guessing, and guesses are usually correct D) Select the alternative which you feel is correct but also review the alternatives which you feel are incorrect just to make sure - don't jump to hasty conclusions
