Anybody know if the October class is full yet? Or how many spots are left if it’s not already full?

I encountered nothing on the test that wasn't in the study guide from FBIJobs.gov, so hopefully that's comforting. Beyond those materials, my advice is to get very comfortable with the figural reasoning questions if you struggle at all with the ones in the study guide. For most people, those are the harder questions. If you Google "figural reasoning test questions," "pattern recognition test questions," or "abstract reasoning test questions," you should find a lot to work with. Also, don't worry about skipping a question and coming back to it. The computerized test makes this easy.

THis X2.

The FBI guide is a great place to start.

Make sure you read the instructions. I can't remember if the FBI guide said you could or could not use scratch paper, but my testing center did not allow me to use scratch paper, which was a curveball.

For logic reasoning - make sure you understand the "some" argument. That is the hardest concept. Lookup youtube some argument explanation. It is the same concept from the LSAT.
The figural reasoning is easy ONCE you get it. But you need to do a few to program your brain for what they are looking for.

What is the current turn around time for invite after taking the Phase 2 written portion for the phase 2 interview? Is there a current back log making 6-7 weeks normal before hearing anything about an interview?

I had 12 days in between completing P2 written and invite to schedule P2 interview but that just may be my FO.
