    I agree, i guess the only real question is why they even bother asking questions like that, and even if you were going to put those questions in, why not just have 3 choices like:

    Agree
    Unsure
    Disagree

    Once you add Strongly Agree & Strongly Disagree it adds a whole other level of "robocop". Just silly and essentially a charade.

    Well I'm definitely going to take your advice, I just don't understand how they grade something so subjective unless they're looking for very specific answers.

    This is what I'd like to know, i see from the practice exam that they provided it shows there will be 2 "subjective" sections of the exam, one where they give you a statement and you rank it from 1 to 5 (Disagree to agree) and also a Life Experience section asking you random questions about your work ethic and habits etc. Could anyone either OTJ or with experience taking these exams explain if they genuinely want the truth here, or we're better off just telling them exactly what they want to hear (AKA giving them the best "political" answer).

    Thanks.

    Nassau just charged 150$ for Corrections Exam. So overall it's becoming par for the course for Long island LE exams.
