    Got my 5 memorized in 2 days.

    Will Start learning my 10 tomorrow. That doesn’t need to be word for right? Just main points?

    Word for word. All of it. Sooner you learn the better.

    Yes, I did mine a day or two before I went to school. I basically just kept saying them over and over until I hit a snag then I'd look at the list, then start from the top and kept doing that until I could rattle them off like an auctioneer.

    That method worked much better than the typical write them out over and over I know a lot of other people have used.

    Write it out over and over and over again. Worked for me.

    eats packages Anyone ever hear about "load charts"

    anki and ankidroid. Handy little flashcards for your phone/computer

    This is how I learned spanish, a bunch of math, science, computer science, 10 keys and yard safety, street names by block cluster (Because hin's are the worst invention for preloaders ever and loading well without looking at and recognizing the address is a pipe dream dreamt up by management)

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    Took me about four hours to learn the 5/10. Not by choice, that was my first day of “school”.

    With today's cell phone technology, I would record myself saying them out loud.
    One recording for the 5 seeing habits and one for the 10 point commentary.
    Then you can play it on repeat as the words sink into your brain.

    There was no 5/10 when I started.

    You had to demonstrate that you could operate the vehicle safely, that you knew how to operate the DIAD, and that you could treat the company's customers with respect.

    All these years later after no accidents, no warning letters, etc., I wonder how I ever survived without knowing the 5 and 10.

    faded jeans just a member

    That is a good way to learn them...
    but afterward if you can sit down with a blank piece of paper and write them down, you know them.

    Learn it for the class and your 30 days. After that sign the sheet and hand it back to your supe (no time, gotta verify air line) or even better safety committee member they don't do much anyways.

    Our safety committee asks you one or two things from the list and then will mark you as done for the month. After you qualify it’s not a giant deal here. Definitely know it word for word while you are qualifying.

    I memorized it the day of my test, during lunch. I couldn’t recite it word for word now and I’ve only been driving a package car since April.

    Good luck qualifying if you haven’t already.
