I was wondering i am about to take the PATI test and i was just wondering if it is a timed test. I have talked to a police officer that said when he took the test there was X amount of sections and he only got 5 min. to write each section.
Can anyone tell me

It works out to approx 1 minute per question. So if you are stuck on one, keep moving and answer all of the ones yuo know first. Then go back.
You get a total of 90-minutes to answer 90 questions. My advise is to move to the sections that you find the easiest - then move to the harder sections. They will update you on time - so you can track your progress and you can speed up or slow down depending.

Hey Big Dutchy.....it sounds like the officer you spoke to was referring to the GATB. I did take it about 10 yrs ago and it was alot different from the PATI which replaced the GATB.
The PATI is 90 questions and you have 90 minutes to complete it. You can flip back and forth between sections. The GATB didn't allow this..you were tested by section and could not go back once that section testing was complete.
