Census Exam somewhat like LSAT?

Postby englawyer » Tue Mar 02, 2010 8:19 pm

I took the census exam today as part of the application to become a census taker. Quite a number of the sections remind me of LSAT-ish logic. Just wondering if anyone else took both and agrees 8)

Is it too late to take the exam and apply for this? Sounds like a fun and memorable experience.

I disagree. The census exam is common sense super easy questions. I got a 28/28 also, and I found it NOTHINg like the LSAT.

I took an exam for an internship a few months ago at a big insurance company. It was for their HR department, and a lot of the questions were based off of hypothetical company policies. You had to read the policy and apply it properly to a set of given variables. It wasn't necessarily structured like the LSAT, but the logic skills required were definitely the same! I thought it was pretty complex and tough, but I got a 100%. Thank god for the LSAT! :D

I had to take the census exam again because they fucked up and sent me to the wrong district the first time - I might be the only person to have taken the test twice and scored a 180 BOTH times. Chea.

The Census Exam is a joke compared to the LSAT, but I understand the comparison. I'm not sure if you opted to take the supervisor test, but that too, attempted to test the stoicism of those who took it. Both were quite easy, I too received a perfect score on the enumerator exam and missed one on the supervisor...but thankfully I have a 10 point Veteran's preference :)
