    Everyone should remember this from highschool... I think they still use it for basic military training too....

    Does anyone know where one can get a copy of it, or an mp3 file of it?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Thats exactly what I was looking for! Awsome, thanks NYCguy74... *hugs*

    And you never had them in school? I think I had an ex drill sargent for a physed teacher.... so that may be why. But I'm looking to join the canadain military, but I wanna be sure I pass all the requirements before I sell my house and move closer to the base next summer.

    Ugh, the whole "click the right or left button" thing. They do it in all basic trainings. You can't be in the military if you're hearing impaired... already.

    It makes you real nervous but if you have no problems with your hearing, then you shouldn't sweat it.

    I wonder how the canadian military is... hmmmmm

    Lucky they don't have a policy like ours.

    It has nothing to do with hearing
    It's about running back and forth between 2 cones, the beeps set the pace and it keeps getting faster

    Haha, we had to do one of these for an exercise physiology prac today - nearly killed us all, except this one guy that got up to level 5 on the 14th stage - bloody fit bastard...

    Just out of curiosity, if you've done the beep test in the past, how far did you get before succumbing to exhaustion? I'll start the ball rolling; got to level 1 of the 11th stage today. Not too bad, but could be improved upon. icon_neutral.gif

    I have to do this yearly at work, even though I don't work in the factory.
