The CPOA (California Peace Officer's Association) has finally given their approval to one of the peace officer preparation books. Although there are many books, this is the first book to be written with California's Civil Service testing process in mind. Other states have different methods for application, but this book zeros in on the information needed for California. I recommend this book to any applicant for a California Peace Officer position.

This was my first civil service exam, and I wanted to be prepared. I looked at more than six different books, and decided on this one. On test day, when I opened the test booklet...I knew I picked the right study guide. The test I took was EXACTLY the same format, just different words and situations. The practice tests and other study aids provided within this book made the exam a breeze. I scored the second highest in the group, and I was offered a job with every law enforcement agency I applied for. I'm almost done with the police academy, and I'm working for the agency I really wanted to work for.
It's a great feeling to be prepared, and I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in testing for law enforcement agencies in California. GOOD LUCK!!!

This book had a lot of useful information and at some points a bit overdone but a must if testing for a law enforcement agency in California. This is all I studied and I did well.

I just took the written Exam for the "Evergreen" police Academy in San Jose California. Though I don't know my test score as of right now (find out in two weeks from now) everything that they talked about (and how they went about it) was on the test. If you live in California and are currently about to take the current P.O.S.T. written exam, this is an obvious book to read.

I ordered this book along with, "Police Officer, 14th Edition
by Hugh E. O'Neil," for my brother as he intended to enter into the academy here in California. He did pass his test (after a couple tries) so I am giving this 4 stars. It is the better of the two I ordered, and had more specific information tailored to the specifications of the california law enforcement exam.

I used this book to prepare for the SFPD examination one week in advance. The question types outlined in the book were exactly the same type of questions in the examination. Knowing what kind of questions to expect and how to handle them definitely helped me pass the test. The book also has some interesting information about a career in law enforcement. My only qualm with the book was that the questions themselves were not challenging enough. The SFPD exam had more questions that the sample tests of the book. The SFPD exam questions were also a bit more difficult. There is a 2nd edition of this book out. I haven't had the chance to look at it but it seems that it is cheaper and may be a better preparation tool than the 1st edition. Overall a good study guide even though it was published in 1996.

I have been studying this book for the past 4 months it is very helpful to prepare you for the California Post police exam. I first checked this book out from the library. But it was so useful to me that I bought it here at Amazon. So far I have pass one test with one police department, but I am still trying other departments. This book focuses more on the California post model style be advise that some Police Departments use their own test and not the post exam. For example, San Diego Police Department, Escondido Police Department, Beverly Hills Police Department and so on. Before you take a written test be sure to ask if the department uses the Post exam. This book is great preparation and I recommended to anyone who wants to prepare for the California Post police exam.
