    Evening all,

    Long time lurker, just recently signed up so I can take part.

    I've an assessment day coming up soon for the role of Guard/Conductor/Train Manager, naturally I've all the practice material FGW has kindly sent in preparation for the big day. Now, I'm fairly confident with the way everything is etc but I'm reading a few different things regarding the concentration test... The material I've been supplied with which I'm sure some of you may be familiar with is looking for a certain letter in amongst 20 lines; I've heard that on the day, this will more than likely be a dot concentration test.

    Of course, not that this is a problem as it's very similar to what I'm practicing but would like to attempt the dot test as well so I've got a bit of an edge of what I'll be doing.

    Anyone recently done the FGW assessment day able to point me in the right direction?

    Thank you :)

    Thank you donpoku, appreciate it - only problem is I'm using a mac. May have to throw Windows on to give it a whirl.

    Thank you NX, much appreciated. It's the TM role at Plymouth.

    Just thought I'd mention that I purchased this book the other day... http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Become-Train-Conductor-How2become/dp/1909229679

    Seems very informative, certainly goes along the lines of what is expected at each stage.
