  • Written test study guides

    Hey guys, I was wondering if their are any good websites or any good books that you would recommend to help me prepare for the written test.

    Thanks

    Look at your local library .

    There are several "study guides"

    Be advised their usefulness is spotty
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      Check with departments which you are planning to apply to. In my experience most will tell you which test they use, and then look online for the corresponding study guide. In WI, there is no 'standard' test that all agencies use, but there is a test which is very common. If you find a similar situation in your area, you'll only need to buy one guide. The info is, for the most part, applicable to the other tests as well.

        In Iowa all agencies use the same test and there is no study guide for it. Search Amazon and you will find several generic LE testing books which will give you some ideas of the question types.

          I tried the study books. As far as I'm concerned it's a waste of money. I took as many civil service tests I could related to law enforcement. Eventually I started seeing the same questions come up. I was weak in punctuation and English types of questions so I used those kinds of books to get better at it. When I say I took tests, I took a lot of tests even if I didn't want the job. Corrections, parks police as an example. I would have taken those jobs but I always wanted to be a Trooper and after four of those tests with the same dept I made it.
