Overview

Police Officer Exam, Fourth Edition targets anyone interested in a position in law enforcement, particularly recent high school graduates, two- and four-year college students, and military veterans. Although it is difficult to obtain overall statistics, criminal justice programs are expanding at numerous colleges, including many community colleges. There are indications that forensic-related majors are the fastest growing in the nation. Many students in forensic programs are interested in crime scene and crime lab positions, which in many jurisdictions are open primarily to sworn police officers. This may be one reason for the increasing police applicant pool - those who see entry into a police department as the way to reach a longer-term career goal. Police Officer Exam, Fourth Edition offers information about what tasks a police officer must perform, how to approach the suitability police officer exam, what vocabulary is helpful to know, the mathematical component of the exam, how to prepare for the physical abilities portion of the test, and what to expect from the oral interview, among other key elements of the exam.

As I was reading through this book before I took the OC Sheriff exam, I found a lot of interesting facts that I didn't know. After I took the practice exams in the back of the book, I had a better insight of what the test would be covering. I even took the practice exam online that they provided, my score was a 92. When I took the OC Sheriff's exam, I passed no problem. Everything that I read in this study guide was more than helpful on the exam.

I just bought this book to prepare for my upcoming exam. I'm only 2 practice tests in, and it is full of errors! Answers in the answer key do not match up with answer choices in the questions, missing answer choices, answer choices are plain wrong in the math section! I could go on. Take a good look at any book before you spend valuable prep time using it!
