    25B Is Information Systems, Army's 3C0. 68W is health care, if I remember correctly.

    I work with color blind guys in Comm. They aren't supposed to be in Comm, but they do their job well.

    There's no way in hell you can fail the color test if you can see normally. See if you can take it again.

    I'd still ask to take it again. Any recruiter worth his salt will reschedule something like that.

    That's what I mean.. if his vision truly was normal like he says, he should have passed. It just sounded like he was blaming the examiner for flipping it too fast.

    i had this problem too, is a civi giving you the test, i would just talk to him and try to work something out, and make sure when you are waiting in line to take the test you ask the person in front of you to read the "numbers" out as load as possible... shit worked for me. i am colorblind according to ishihara tests even though i know the fucking difference between red and green

    I failed both the book and the falant test. :o Fortunately, that didn't restrict me from the 3C0 field.

    Tell them you won't go if you can't the job you want. Until you get on the bus to boot, you have no real obligation, and you won't get punished.

    I was red/green color deficient too.
    If you want common go 25C. It used to be 31C but that is where they usually stick you if you color blind. I would say about 75% of all 25C are color blind.

    There is a trick to passing the falant test.
    Color blind people bleed the colors together soooo
    If you see a red dot and a lighter red dot the lighter red dot is actually white
    If you see a green dot and lighter green dot the lighter green dot is actually white
    you should be able to tell when they but the green and red together
