I have my first ever written and physical test with a police department.  I am nervous as can be about it, I have no idea what to expect on the written test, The written test is what I am most worried about.  Could anyone offer advice on what to expect, the best way to prepare myself for the upcoming tests?  Anything tips  and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best advice. Get a good night sleep the night before the test.

Does the department you are applying with have any materials to study for the test? If not....answers are pretty logical. Don't over think your answers. Don't be afraid of failure. If this is your first go at it, go in looking to gain experience. If it doesn't work out, you'll know what to expect for next time. People try and fail several times before getting their first police job. Enjoy the ride and learn as much as you can.

Don't underestimate the physical test. Get a good night's rest and drink fluids, especially if you have to run in this heat.

How's that HOPE and CHANGE working out for you?

What would you do for a Klondike bar?

I will be testing in southern Georgia in July so I could see where the hydration would come in handy lol.

I wish there was but from what I was told they do not have any materials to study for the test.  I could have been misinformed.  I will definitely take a lot away from it if I fail.  Just not letting it kill my confidence will be the hard part.
