Online study sessions coming soon

I’m working on some options for online study sessions. The main requirements are the ability to stream audio/video and have a chat function that is relatively easy to moderate. Right now the frontrunner is Twitch, but I’m also looking at WebEx (free version is limited to 100 people) or mycircle.tv (don’t know how well it scales, doesn’t allow live video). If anyone has comments or experience with using these platforms or other suggestions, please comment on this post. Thanks in advance!

Ground Rules

The purpose of this post is to familiarize you with some ground rules regarding this website.  Please read it in its entirety and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

  1. This is not an official site of OITS, PEF, Civil Service, or any other group.  It is run by Sarah Lauser for free use by all New York State IT Specialists.
  2. There may be study session information posted at some point.  All study sessions may have different registration requirements but it is important that you read the announcement and follow its instructions.  Emails to Sarah to reserve spots will NOT be accepted.
  3. If you would like to organize additional sessions and announce them via this site, please let me know and I am happy to assist.
  4. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS PROHIBITED ON THIS SITE:
    • Material from previous exams
    • Material from “experts” who may have helped to write questions
    • Copyrighted material (unless you have permission from the owner)
      This includes CSEA booklets!

It’s a work in progress…

Welcome, NYSITS visitors! It’s exam season again, and that means I’m ramping up to help you prepare for the test.  Please excuse the new site; the old one was overrun with spammers.

As I work on getting this site up and running, you can make sure you receive notifications by subscribing to the email list at the bottom of this page.

In the meantime, here is a link to the 2010 and 2014 videos to keep you busy.
