Benefits of Being Prepared for Postal Exam MH 475 & MP 476


Preparation is essential to passing both postal exams 475 & 476 for many reasons. First, you are only given three (3) days to complete the exam once you receive your email invitation. This on top of the strange question style found in many of the sections on the actual exam can make the whole experience quite nerve-wracking.

The strange question and answering style mentioned above has been shown to stump many applicants. So much so that, according to the US Postal Service, between 80-90% of applicants will not pass their entrance exams. Practicing will help you familiarize yourself with these questions and their answering styles, thus improving your speed and accuracy. This will ultimately increase your chances of receiving one of the top three (3) scores for either exam 475 or 476, securing your place in the USPS interview process.

Why You Need this Postal MH 475 & MP 476 PrepPack™?

With this special pack, you are introduced to each section of both postal exams 475 and 476. Knowing what to expect when taking these tests will not only help your answering speed and accuracy but also your ability to land one of the top scores required by the USPS to continue in the hiring process. Start practicing now to access the personality, situational and error-checking questions found on each exam to give yourself an advantage over other applicants.

"I am applied for at least four positions at the US post office; holiday clerk assistant, casual clerk position, assistant city carrier, and a mail processing clerk. With the help of the JobTestPrep’s test preparation, I passed the 474 with a 73%, 475 with a 77%, and the 476 with a 79%. The practice scenarios helped me to consider the whole environment of the workplace at the post office, including customers and co-workers, the production goals, and formulate good decisions. I recommend this assessment test to anyone who wants to take the test for US post office. "
