NET exam and Interview all in one day!!

  1. Just came out of the interview 40 minutes ago :stone . I got a lot of mixed emotions right now...I can't say that i'm not relieved but i'm not excited and definely still a little anixous. Nowhere on the school's webpage or the application say that an interview was required. But i guess all was fair since they gave me an early notice a week ago.
    I arrived at the testing site exactly on the dote at 10:00 this morning. There were about 20-25 of us taking the NET and only 2 men, including me, out of the bunch, talk about being the minority . Nothing was too hard on the exam but the da*n fractions just drove me nuts :angryfire . (and there were plenty of them) Took me about 2 hours to complete the entire exam. Then I went to lunch at a pizza place nearby and waited til 1:30 for the interview. And things just went down hill from there (even if I had an extra parachute, I would not have survived the fall). I choked on almost every Qs they tossed at me. It was horrible.
    And to think that it was caused by my undoing...I not going to sit here and lie and say that it was the fault of the interviewers. They were 2 extremely nice women and the Qs they asked were so straight forward, even President Bush could of answered them correctly without stuttering.
    And Now...I just have to wait and wait and wait and wait...til June.

    Hi,
    Good luck with the test and interview I'm sure you'll be fine. It's hard keeping your sanity when your waiting for an answer..lol.. I myself have to take the NET and go on an interview in the near future. I don't know when yet though. How was the test over all and the format of it? and how did you study for it?

    The NET exam has two main components, math and reading comprehension.
    When I got my interview schedule phone call, the lady at the other end of the line gave me a website where I could order the study guide. But if u want any advice from me, don't buy the study guide, it's a total waste of money IMHO. If you took high school math then you'll pass the math part with flying colors. For those who needs some review, just use your high school daughter/son's math book, or go to your local library and check out an algebra book. As far as what to review, concentrate on decimals, percentages, ratios, fractions, and simple algebraic equations. Make sure you know how to convert percentages to decimals, ratios to percentages, fractions to decimals, and fractions to percentages, cause a least half of the Qs are on them. As for the reading comprehension part, Qs are more or less in the format, "What is the main topic of the passage/paragraph?" and "From the above passage/paragraph, the following are true except." The passage selected are mostly related to science. And I think that covers almost everything on the exam .
    Good luck to all who are taking the NET in the near future.
