What is on Postal Exam 473/473E?

Exam 473 has been retired and replaced by four new tests – exams 474, 475, 476 & 477

This blog originally answered the above question, but exam 473 is no longer given. So this blog now shares facts on the current situation.

The Postal Service recently retired exam 473 and replaced it with four new tests – exams 474, 475, 476 & 477 – that are now used to fill over 95% of all entry level jobs. The new tests have absolutely nothing in common with old exam 473. Study guides for old exam 473 cannot prepare you for the new tests in way whatsoever.

Sadly, many publishers and online merchants continue to knowingly sell obsolete exam 473 guides. In fact, a recent survey indicated that over 90% of the study guides being sold are obsolete. Some merchants still identify their guides as being for exam 473. Others falsely claim their obsolete guides are up-to-date for the new tests. See our Consumer Alert for details on how to identify and avoid obsolete guides.
