Forget WikiLeaks here comes APC... only 33, I thought it was 50?

Are you really Captain material - Why post them in the open, when you could get a free dinner or cold beverages?

Seriously thanks for the info Bikingflyer. Some pretty interesting and well thought out questions in there. I will brush up on the WX section in hopes of getting a chance to give the test a try.

"Friends Request" from a Navy/UAL guy to any old or new friends at Atlas...

He also posted them on PPRUNE as the ones he could remember. My short term memory would be clogged after 5.

For an hour long technical test, I was impressed at his recall as well. I have to write a grocery list if my wife asks for more than 3 items.

I still have excellent data storage, it is the data retrieval that seems to be acting up.

If test scores improve as a result of this, watch the test change quickly.

I know they monitor this and other web boards.

As for memory, the miracle of a video camera makes it a no brainier.

reading from other guys, it seems they were given the link for an online test during their phone interview.
Anyone know the answer to this?
