    Entrance exam for police officer. I have been looking for study guides online and came across this prep test and a few others. I'm coming out of the military and some of the departments here are hiring.

    Most of them are basic high school level skills tests. They are generally designed to include law enforcement elements, but require no law enforcement knowledge. For example, a question may read something like:

    "Deputy Smith's patrol route is 56.2 miles, one way. If Deputy Smith works three days this week and does not deviate from his route, how many miles will he drive?"

    It could easily be " salesman's sales route" or "a mailman's delivery route", etc, etc, etc. I guess my point is, don't spend a lot of extra money on a police specific book, if it comes down to it.
