Having studied the book religiously prior to taking an assessment from the same company the author owns, myself and a couple others who spent the money found we were in no better position than those who attended the orientation given prior to the assessment. In my opinion, there were no hidden gems, nothing that would give you an advantage over someone who had not bought the book but attends the orientation and reads the handout.

Finally, a text that delivers what it claims to! As we go through our motions in selecting tomorrow's leaders for our Law Enforcement Agencies, the Assessment Center has become the principal tool in this process. How refreshing to finally have an additional instrument for our candidates to navigate this process, all the while soaking up valuable and insightful lessons from Dr. Morris. As Chief of Police in a medium sized agency, and former executive in a large metropolitan department, I only wish this work was available in past years. It is a rare blend of expert insights and performance tips for a promotional candidate. In addition, it is extremely readable, which is so rare in test preparation manuals.
I cannot emphasize enough, the value of this text for any would be supervisory candidate. If you love our profession and there is an assessment center process anywhere in your future, this text is ESSENTIAL reading.
Chief Charles McNeeley,

This is the best prep book for candidates that I have come across in my 26 years as a police assessor. Dr. Morris takes a very honest and direct approach to helping candidates in practical ways without overstating or making ridiculous promises. Definitely a "must-have" book for anyone preparing for a promotional assessment.

This is the first time I have ever purchased a book and been totally distracted by a large badge on EVERY single page that says "DO NOT COPY". This badge and warning covers every page and the entire page. It is hard to get past that and read the actual content of the book.
