    I did it in 3 days. But I didn’t have a job at the time. Write it out over and over again. Record yourself reading it and listen to it over and over again

    5 point word for word

    10 point the stuff in bold and in your own words describing what they mean.

    Not too hard.

    I got the same three days to learn it...find an instrumental of a song you like and replace the lyrics with the 5 pointer...think of how many songs you know by heart.

    10 pointer is easy if you abbreviate it.
  8. Can you give a small amount of detail to your helpful tips? Thanks
  9. Is this the 5 pointer?

    1-Aim high when steering
    2-Get the big picture
    3-Keep your eyes moving
    4-Leave yourself an out
    5-Make sure they see you

    I have my road test tomorrow morning but have never been asked any of this

    Get a paper and write them down. Dont try to learn everything at once. Learn the first two steps until you remember them and gradually increase from there.

    Also record yourself saying it and play it like listening to music while you repeat the words.

    Those were the two things that help me learn them fast. And in my class we had till Thursday to get them right, so I doubt Monday is the day you need to know everything.

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    It's aim high IN steering but I am sure they have lower standards for the seasonal meat.

    You should of seen them hustle me away and out of the building during audit. They even stopped asking me to take the employee survey.

    I never remembered or recited any of that garbage.
    Not the Habits Crap, DOK Crap, The Safe Walking Crap, The Lift Lower Crap.
    Memorizing and reciting it like a Brown Parrot isn't required to keep your job.
    Grieved all the discipline I received about it and won.
    My Space and Vis Rides were a blast.
