I've been digging around for more study material for LE entrance exams and came across the site,

http://www.policeexam911.com

He has testimonials on the site, and I've read through the info but I'm still skeptical. Has anyone else used it? I believe the author is a member of PL, but I would like user and LEO opinion's here.

Well, I can't testify to the value of the information that I learned due to the fact that I haven't taken a test yet. That said, I did spend the $$ to find out what I could and get as much information as possible in preparation for taking my tests. I figure its an investment in my future...every little bit helps! I can say that the information videos that he has on his site are very informative, and seems to correspond to information I've gleaned from other sources (friends who are LEO's). They contain tips of the trade, all the way from what you should do when filling out an application, to how to prepare for the other aspects of the testing process. One thing that he mentions was about handwriting. He says that when an applicant fills out an application, to do it by hand if possible, and as neatly as possible, to give the agency an example of the applicants handwriting. This has the impact of giving a good first impression. Seems logical, since a police officer does alot of writing. I did have some questions about some things, and I e-mailed Sgt Godoy for answers, and he e-mailed me right back with the information I was requesting, along with a good-luck, and if I needed anything else, to let him know. He seems very interested in ensuring that his information is as helpful as possible to people trying to secure a LE job. I can't say for sure if I wasted 50 bucks...I guess I'll find out when I finally start my application process utilizing his tips of the trade. Good luck.

I neglected to mention that once you pay your money to access the videos, that access is forever, so you can continue coming back to reference them.

Good Luck.

Hey Small Town, for $50 bucks and change anything you do is just going to help. I haven't seen these and I don't know the guy, but anything that gets you thinking about the process is going to be good, and you can validate anything that might seem odd. I say go for it. Then let me know what YOU think about it. (Ok, Sarge, you have my address -get that kickback check on the way) :-0 [just kidding]

www.policequiz.com

$39.99 - great info on every facet of most exams. Passed my first Montana POST test with 94%, and my second test with 96%. Not sure if it's because of the help from policequiz.com or not, but as Tommy said...anything that gets your mind going in that general direction is good stuff. That amount covers a year's membership by the way...

I appreciate the feedback and the advice. I agree that any money spent toward education is a solid investment. I also believe in pinching a penny till Lincoln’s nose bleeds, which is why I was a little skeptical here. I’ll let ya’ll know how it goes good or bad.

RPL thanks for the additional site- I’ll look at that too.

Im not going to say they help, if u dont know what to expect, u cant prepare for it, when i took the exam, i know u couldnt prepare for what they did in the testing..it all depends on the dept your applying to.

I purchased study guide from 911.com.
It was amazing. Not only did it have the written test etc. The site also had judgment videos, Oral Board review, (huge)
and segments to go on google to better prepare.Sorry he also has a great segment devoted to the Polygraph.

Also I have e-mailed Sgt. Goody numerous times ,and he is very quick to reply.
Sgt. Goody is extremley helpfull. Pretty sure you can't e-mail the publisher of the book to answer any questions you may have.

This is the best 50 dollars I have spent on any traning manuals.

CROM- Did you even purchase this? From your post " It's a gimmick" Tells me you didn't ,and you are making a statement- just to make one.

I am
