Depending on the type of test, there are two math sections, one with basic arithmetic (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication) and another section on general math such as word problems. Listen to Cecilia, spend the money if you are serious, get the book and study it.

Cecilia,

Do you have the exact name of that book with the author’s name by chance? I have to also take my POST test soon and would like anything I can get my hands on. Math is the easy part for me its my grammar I’m worried about I’ve been out of school for 7 years and the 2 years of college that I have done dose not focus on spelling. Besides I have a computer that doses that for me and a damn calculator… But that’s right I can’t use theses on the test lol.... See what happens technology is melting our brains… (Joking) Thanks....

Is this a state test to become a peace officer or a department thing?........All the departments I applied for never had anything to do with math, and my state exam was ethics, penal code, traffic, and family and such

I have recently taken a few exams and I am scheduled for a few more. My last test had a word problem that read, Sgt. johns has an additive to had to the oil he uses to clean his weapon. the directions call for 1/3 cup additive to 3 cups oil, but Sgt Johns only has two cups oil, how much additive should he use. The last time I had word problems that hard was in high school. Although another test had basic math, english and reading comprehension. Check with the department and request a practice exam. Quite a few places I have applied to have sent practice exams. Good luck.

Its for P.O.S.T. (I think its Police, Officer, Selection or State, Test) its a state test here that we have to take before we can get into the academy, also I have a example test but it only has two question per section of the test. So I need something more in depth, I also have 92 credits in college right now and it’s all been on Criminal justice, but this test is your basic High school stuff, math, read, spelling, and writing.... But all the suggestions are helping Thanks All
