Great basic info and helps you plan your preparation for promotion. Most of these books are very much the same, but this one covers most all of the variables they all seem to have.

I got promoted first to corporal, then sergeant within two years so it worked for me!

This book is an excellent companion to your study material. The hints they give you are for the "buzz-words" that civil service examiners love to use in test questions. They certainly don't guarantee a correct answer, but when you're stuck, knowing those key words and/or phrases can bail you out. The practice exams in this book are more than worth the price of purchase. This book definitely helped me with my promotion exam.

First, I'd like to give the disclaimer that I've only taken promotion exams in NY. This book is good for NY police promotional exams, as it goes over a lot of reading interpretation and Iannone concepts, but if you're outside of NY, caveat emptor.

One of the authors of this book runs prep courses in NY. Going over this book (which of course he listed as suggested reading in his course :-)) and looking at his course material, I can say that the book is the Reader's Digest version of parts of his course. I'm purposefully being vague because I don't want it to seem that I'm advertising for them, but that course, along with his lectures and classes, hitting Iannone's book hard, assorted NYS law books, and then using this book as a quick question bank/refresher guide helped me greatly. Even though I recommend it (especially if your jurisdiction uses Iannone's "Supervision of Police Personnel" for exam material) don't rely just on this one book though, devour as much info as you can. It's your career, why skimp on it?

I purchased this book several years ago while preparing for a police promotional exam. The best parts of this book were the sample question types and practice tests; they were very useful for getting you into test-taking mode and for getting you exposed to some of the topics that get asked over and over on these types of tests. The shipping was prompt and the price reasonable. I would recommend this book be used in conjunction with other books as it is somewhat light on theory, but that is not its intended purpose. I have taken other Arco classes before and their reviews are well organized and very helpful. Good luck.
I comparison shop a lot before buying anything - hopefully you can benefit from my time investment and review.
