TEST INFORMATION PAMPHLET
WHY DO AT&T AND ITS AFFILIATES TEST?
When individuals are being considered for our available job openings, they go through a selection process to
measure their skills and abilities to determine if they can perform the jobs in a satisfactory manner. It is to the
advantage of both you, as a job candidate, and the company that only those who can perform at acceptable
levels be placed on the job. Research has shown that tests provide accurate measures of people’s skills and
abilities and, therefore, we use tests to help identify people best suited for our job openings.

WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE FOR THE TEST?
When you are scheduled for the TMTF II, you will be given a specific time to report to the testing location. Try to
arrive at the location at least 15 minutes before your scheduled test time to give yourself time to relax before the
test begins. Review this Test Information Pamphlet and be prepared for the test by bringing your glasses, etc.
Ask questions before the test begins and be sure you understand the format of the TMTF II.
FOR EMPLOYEES ONLY: You may contact the AT&T Self Development Resource Center located on
HROneStop at http://hronestop.att.com >> Your Career >> Self Development >> Test Preparation to inquire
about study guides, textbooks, and/or general course information that may help you prepare for the test.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PERFORM MY BEST ON THE TEST?
1. Read questions carefully.
2. Think - reason out your answer.
3. Answer questions you are sure of first.
4. Reject immediately those answers you know are incorrect.
5. Don't change your answers unless an obvious mistake has been detected.
6. Be aware of the time (make a mental note of the time when the test begins and pace yourself
accordingly).
RETEST INTERVALS
If it should happen that you do not qualify on the TMTF II, you may retest at six-month intervals. Test standards
are periodically updated to reflect current abilities and skills required for our jobs. Therefore, it may be
necessary to meet new test standards should they be introduced prior to your placement on the job.
