Can anyone help me relax?

Hello,

First time message, long time viewer to this site.  I am taking a CVSA tomorrow for a pre-employment as a law enf. ofc.  I have taken two cvsa, a week apart, and was told I passed one and then failed the other.  The one I failed was that I was a member of a subversive group!!  Can  you believe it?  I can't, being that I am the nicest most honest person around.

Anyway, that was the past.  Since then, I have passed a pre employment polygraph using the helpful hints on this site....now, tomorrow I have to take a cvsa and I am totally freaked out!  I know that are all pieces of sh**, but I must pass this one to get on with my career and life.

I am a single mom on a strict budget bec I am not currently in law enforcement and can't really afford to purchase the book on how to countermeasure one of these cvsa's.  I don't have anything to lie about, but as I stated above, I failed on  bec I told the truth.  I told the examiner that I was not a prejudiced person, I was not a member of the KKK, or the mafia and I still showed deception on the question. So, I am so so scared that I will not pass tomorrow.  This is the last test I have to take before being offered the job and I am terrified.  What can I do?  Can anyone of you nice people out there who has been in the same boat as me give me some advice on how to be successful with this test?  I would certainly appreciate anything you can say to help me.  Thank you again.

Who Me

Just relax and be yourself and I am sure you will do fine.

Remember, this more of an interrogation, than a "test". 

All of us have at one point or another in our lives laughed at a joke that was at the expense of another ethnicity and have even been prejudiced against someone based solely on their appearance.  To some of us these simple actions can cause a little too much stress, often to the point where in that person's mind they may begin to mistakenly group themselves with a subversive group when asked about it.

There is, however, a clear distinction and you need to remember that.

Good luck!

Good luck
