Can anyone suggest what I should study to prepare for the postal exam? What does it consist of?

I think the biggest challenge is the memory of addresses, the other two parts are really no brainers. Trying to memorize 25 addresses will be the tie breaker.

Can anyone tell me if the real test is somewhat like a practice exam in the study guides or is it totally different?

I just took the postal exam on here and it was so boring. I wouldn't want to go take this but I need a job so...

the memory part of the exam in the prep book said you get 3 chances to memorize. does anyone know how this works?

If this is so I'm wondering if you could memorize the first 2 columns, then the next 2 and then the last one. Does anyone know?<BR>

Hi Dan,<BR>I saw your post on 4Tests.com and I took the 460 Postal Exam and failed. I don't know how much that I failed by just that I failed. What book are you studying for the Postal Test. Does it really help? Do you know how much each part of the test counts for? They say the memory test is only 1/4 off if incorrect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.<BR> <BR>

I Took the Postal Exam several years ago and was promptly (within 1-2 Weeks) called back to interview for a rural carrier job.<BR>I believe the most important skill to have is a clear understanding of how adresses are arranged.<BR>The best practical experience I had for the Exam was from delivering pizzas. At this job (at night, in traffic) I had to understand the general location of a house based on the address only (no map quest cheaters).<BR>I learned the names and block numbers of every steat in my area, there was no garruntee I could see/read the signs and house numbers. I could look at an address and instantly know it was x blocks off such a corner, the NSEW location, and an approximate number of houses in from the corner.<BR>The first time took months (54 STs X 60#ed ones) but doing it fot the fith / sixth time at the exam only took seconds.

The free posted exam only resembles the first section of the REAL Postal exam!<BR>That section is by far the easiest and checks for basic reading writing skills and requires minimal understanding of adress systems. <BR>I took the test on this web page and scored a 95, but I think their answers are inacurate. I believe New York = N.Y. , and Street and St. are the same. Which way does the post office score these?! <BR>I Think the maximum score in part one requires you to know all common postal abv.s (50 states, Hwy. Rd. Blvd. ) <BR>Please tell me if I'm wrong, but I think you must know that 1100 Rt. 4 is the same as 1100 Route Four.<BR>Administators: Please change your practice test to respect this. Thkx<BR>

I don't remember Part 2 as well as the others. It resembles part 3 but is not as demanding. As I recall, these sections ask you to memmerize about 30 segments of road in anytown USA then answer questions about &quot;your&quot; area.<BR>I recall 2 main types of questions;<BR> A T/F is such an adress in your area<BR>and the more difficult which segmet does this adress belong to?<BR> Remember folks they ask ? after taking away the list of your addresses

ATT: COCKSTER<BR>Numbers are Appoximate, please understand. Thankx.<BR>The Postal exam is scored like the SATs. <BR>That is you get 4 pts for right answers and lose 3 for wrong and like 1 for blank.<BR>(that's +4,-3,+1 not 4,3,1) So don't fill in bubbles to finish, blank ?s score you positive points. Only answer TF ?s if you are absolutely sure. However, ?s with four or so answers should be guessed at, Provided that you KNOW atleast 1 or more answer is 100% WRONG. Read the answer sections carefully, some answers are so obviously wrong that the ? could be written in Chinesse and still should be quessed at.<BR>Check with the SAT guys, but if the SAT had only three answers per ? then a monkey would score 1200!!<BR>UNDERSTAND THE SYSTEM AND USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.<BR>
