    Any advice on the COPS test? What sections make up this test?

    its a test that a lot of people hate...I always did decent on it when I was testing, but I still hated taking it. Its a fast paced test with little time to complete each section. Don't worry if you dont answer every question, I don't think I ever did.
    We don't "LOL" here. This isn't facebook or some text message between BFF's who are all OMG WTFJH and DYST? We type and speak as adults. Fix yourself.

        A little bit of everything and anything. Some of it makes no sense whatsoever, you can't really practice for it. Once you take it you'll see the concept of it. The good thing is that the test NEVER changes, so if you test for multiple depts. it will be all the same which will help you a lot during the memorization section of the test.

            The key to the test is not to answer every question. if you only answer 40 out of 100 and get all 40 right then thats better then answering 90 out of 100 and getting 40 wrong. Get what im saying.

              It has been made clear that not answering a question on C.O.P.S. test is marked incorrect and counted against the tester.

              To the original poster, go to the Schaumburg office and take the practice test. It's around $25.

              Years back this test use to be much more difficult. Time limits were increased around 2008 and 2009. I remember the first section only having a minute and half to complete it.

                How many would-be cops even know what a bear market is, lol. Or what the word Loquacious even means. That test is exactly what you said, bull**** on top of bull****. What I don't get, is how they ask a tactic question on that test about how to approach a door of a called in domestic with multiple choice answers. How can you ask something like that on an entry-level test? Or the question on GUESSING what someone thought was the license plate of a get-away vehicle. There are quite a few questions on that test that shouldn't even be there.

                Regardless, I can't do better than 85 on it. No matter what I try.

                            I still want to see that guy do the sit ups...

                            Only it's COPS. They'll let him get away with half *** sit ups and still count it. I hate that company.
