I should be taking the civil service exam in March. for Texarkana, TX PD and I have an ap in for Texarkana, AR. The study guide seems extremely easy. Any advice for the exam? I assume a physical test will come soon after? Any advice on how to impress in the interviews/ academy if I make it? I was also wondering how rank generally works and how to advance asap. Is there a test every so often and you advance as others above you do, or what? Anything I can do to get ahead/ general advice appreciated.
