When we go in for the PAT we only have to take in the background and personal history report right? No other meetings that day?

Hey Me in Bakersfield, I would suggest to just practice riding a stationary bike on level 8,9,10. That what it felt like to me. It is only for a minute or two on the test. The hand grip was the easiest just squezzz with some force thats it. The arm pedaling was easy too. It was almost as if no or very little resistance was on the pedals. I just went to the gym and rode a stationary bike for a week on level 10. I hope this helps in any way. I was done in maybe less than 20 minutes.

As long as you pass the written exam I believe your good right?
It's not that there taking high scores, it's either pass or fail? I believe
This is correct. There is no more score that you carry and decides wether your picked next or not.
