While this book was intended for Police oral boards, I highly recommend getting this book if you have a Special Agent/Criminal Investigator (1811) or any other Federal LE oral board coming up if you have never been through one before. It is a quick read (1-2 hours), but gives the foundation you need to get some of the pass/fail law enforcement-based questions that frequently blindside candidates.

Read this at the very beginning of your prep, then again a time or two before the oral board. This should get you at least 30% prepared; the rest is knowing the department, position, your qualifications, and other normal interview stuff which the book touches on as well. Being prepared for the questions will help you save enough time to be able to sell yourself to the board before your time is up.

I was apprehensive at first buying a book to prepare me for a police oral board but the book helped me so much. I did a bit more research online, reading articles and asking questions of former and current police officers. I don't know what the underlying reason is for me getting offered the job, but the Chief just called like 10 minutes ago and I got the job. It was my first and only police application. So all I can say is, the book helped because I'm not from a military background or anything like that, but I beat out over 30 other applicants.

Shouldn't be your only form of preparation but it does help you out if you are clueless and don't know where to start. After reading this book, get a LEO friend to help you put together some good answers. Have various people interview you with slight variations of the all the questions in this book and in random order. Have them critique you, everyone will have their own opinion, take everyone's advice and put together what you feel will be your best responses. Don't memorize the questions, you need to be dynamic. Again, I think its a great book and it will help you out alot, just make sure you do your homework.

I purchased this book four years ago while still in the police academy. After graduation, I extensively studied the materials inside this book and was able to land a job with a very desirable agency. The questions they asked me during the oral board interview had all been covered in this book, so I felt prepared and delivered excellent responses.

If you are going to take an oral board test, this is the book you must read before you go, especially if it's your first time taking an oral board. The book covers everything and helps you prepare for the test. Highly recommend it.

Has great senario questions and how to answer them. From what I've experienced in police interviews is that they ask a few senarios and then go into behavioral based interviews such as "Name a time you had to communicate with some one you did not like or did not like you and how did you handle it?" I'd look up behavioral interview questions online for more help. They also ask a lot of generic interview questions too . Be prepared for anything.

This book contains great advice, however, is overly-expensive for such a thin book. While I'm glad I have it now, I don't think I would have made the purchase if I knew it only had 94 pages.
