Updated to reflect the most recent exams given across North America, this test prep manual presents four full-length practice exams with all questions answered and fully explained. Tests include two that were actually given by the New York City Police Department. Brand-new in this edition is a completely new diagnostic exam. It contains the latest question types found on recent police entry-level exams and guides candidates in quickly directing and focusing their study efforts. Other helpful features include instruction on writing police reports, advice on making the right impression at an admissions interview, an overview of police officers’ responsibilities, and additional practice questions with answers, which follow in-depth explanations of each question type normally found on official police officer exams.

    If you need to read this book to pass a police officer entrance exam, you probably aren't smart enough for the job.

    It has been some time (the Quigley Books) since there have been exceptional police exams books for the entry level applicants as the main focus from author/authors.Not only does it prepare the potental officer as far as the written test, it offers a myriad of other helpful hits from professional behavior and reactions a police officer should present himself during and after a particular incidnet or event. This is just not pages filled with questions and answers to get you passed the written aspect of police testing. it continues with how you approach this position, coupled with the responsibilities that come with this position. I find this book to be a total assest, and one long coming to assist the potentional applicants on how to study, how to behave, how to react, how to dechipher their responsibilities at the station, in the vehicle and in a working situation.

    Incisive, comprehensive, astute; prepares one for the actual exam in
    realistic, relatively simple terms. Check out the new diagnostic exam.
    Also, practice questions with answers; reliable, covers it all!

    Before you become the officer you must study upon the exam.
