Do you have to be 21 for any of those?

If you ask me the exam is not that hard you can purchase the book at amazon.com or you can go to the library and check it out make sure you get
the current exam book as it has changed.
after taking the exam it will take about 6 week for you to get your test results in the mail it will tell you if you pass or fail... you must gat a 70 or higher on the exam and of course they call people first who score higher and they work there way down from the list.
and i believe the age requierment is 18 years of age to apply.

Exam isnt hard. Military ppl will score high with their extra points. If you score an 85+ you'll probably have a chance to get hired.

It's a good job, with good pay and benifits.

I scored an 88 when I took it about a year ago... not bad for not studying.

I never got a call back. It was AMAZING to see people in there who looked like they just got off the boat from Africa, India, and Mexico taking the test.
