POLICE OFFICER ENTRANCE EXAM STUDY GUIDE

Document Content and Description Below

The Entrance Exam for police officers measures the basic skills necessary to perform successfully as a police officer. The test covers four areas: (1) math skills, (2) reading comprehension skills, ... (3) language skills, and (4) writing skills. Each test section is timed (between 15 and 25 minutes each), and contains between 10 and 25 questions. The tests will be graded based on how many questions are answered correctly and the minimum passing score is 75% on all four sections combined. Specifically, the math portion of the exam contains 20 questions, the reading comprehension section contains 25 questions, the language skills portion contains 20 questions, and the writing sample contains 10 questions. In order to score 75% on the entire exam, at least 57 questions must be answered correctly. Therefore, given the limited time in which to answer questions, examinees should focus their time and attention on the questions that they find easier. Spending too much time on one question can result in the examinee running out of time and not being able to answer other questions. Based on past results of the test, examinees should pay particular attention to appropriately budgeting their time on the math portion of the exam. Scratch paper will be provided, but otherwise, examinees will not be allowed to utilize calculators, dictionaries, or any other aid.
