INTRODUCTION, McCann Associates has prepared this guide to give each candidate the opportunity to prepare for. the test Many persons have never taken a Police Officer entrance test or may have taken a different one. Most people tend to be fearful of the unknown and this guide is intended to familiarize you with our. question formats and the instructions for taking the test If you study this guide you should be able to. concentrate your efforts during the test itself on reading and answering the questions. This guide consists of four parts questions about test taking information about typical question. formats sample questions and the test instructions The key answer for each sample question is given. and with some of these questions an explanation about the key answer is also given. Don t try to memorize the answers to the sample questions none of these questions will be on the. test However by carefully studying these questions you can become familiar with the style and format. of our questions The test instructions appear exactly the way they are on the front and back covers of the. examination question booklets, DESCRIPTION OF THE TEST. The test consists of two separately timed parts The first part is contained in the first examination. question booklet Booklet I and consists of 30 Observation questions The second part is contained in a. separate examination question booklet Booklet II and consists of 70 questions The front and back. covers of these booklets contain information and instructions on how to use the booklets and the. accompanying answer sheet Reproductions of the front and back covers are attached at the end of this. guide Familiarize yourself with these instructions before the test and reread the front and back covers on. the day of the test, THE BEST ANSWER, Your task in each question is to choose the best or most acceptable answer from among the five. choices The basis for the official key answer is not absolute rightness or wrongness but comparative. rightness The key answer must be the best answer that is it must be better than any of the other four. choices There may be another answer which is not among the five choices which is a better answer. than any of the five choices Even if this is true it is still your task to choose the one choice that is the. best answer of the five choices given To help you remember that your task is to choose the best or most. acceptable answer many questions include a superlative such as the most important reason the best course. of action best describes or most likely to be, TO GUESS OR NOT TO GUESS. The instructions you will find on the front cover of the test booklet include the following. All questions have equal weight Do not open this booklet until the. monitor tells you to Begin the test, This means that each of the 30 questions in Booklet I and each of the 70 questions in Booklet II.
have equal weight This also means that there is no penalty for guessing If you answer 85 questions. correctly and 15 questions incorrectly you will be given full credit for 85 correct answers If you answer. 85 questions correctly 10 questions incorrectly and fail to answer 5 questions you will also be given full. credit for 85 correct answers, 1 Version mccann studyguide police written 20120130. If you fail to answer one or more questions you will not get credit If you guess at the answer to. one or more questions you will get credit for any correct answers Consequently you should record an. answer to every question the answer that seems best to you even though you may not be sure that it is. the best answer, TAKE TIME TO BE CAREFUL, There are 30 questions in Booklet I with a time allowance of 25 minutes The questions are very. short There are 70 questions in Booklet II with a time allowance of 2 hours 135 minutes These time. allowances are sufficient so that most candidates even those who read slowly should be able to finish. each booklet However it is extremely important to plan your time and to pace yourself This is. particularly important in Booklet II The last 11 questions the Text Interpretation questions are longer. and may take more time than other questions For this reason it is advisable to give yourself extra time. for the last 11 questions in Booklet II, During the actual test the monitor will periodically announce the amount of remaining time that. you have to complete the test in order to assist you in pacing yourself It is a good test taking technique. to check your time regularly to see whether you are on schedule In Booklet I you should answer 6. questions in 5 minutes In Booklet II you should answer 5 questions in 10 minutes. Take the time to read and answer the questions carefully because rushing may cause mistakes. It s better to answer only 90 questions because you took enough time to be careful than to rush through. all 100 questions and make mistakes, TOUGH QUESTIONS. There probably will be some difficult questions Don t spend too much time trying to figure out. the answer to a tough question It is usually wiser to skip a tough question don t forget to skip the space. on the answer sheet and answer the rest of the questions Mark each question you skip in the booklet. so that you can find it later When you have finished all the questions in Booklet I go back and answer. the tough questions that you skipped If you spend too much time on tough questions you may have to. hurry or you may not have sufficient time to answer all the questions possibly including some easier ones. that might appear later in the test, TRICKINESS, The test does not contain trick questions However a question that is not tricky for a candidate.
who knows the answer may seem tricky to someone who doesn t The test creators try to make wrong. answers attractive to persons who are poorly qualified The wrong answers are intended to be incorrect. but nevertheless wrong answers can t be so silly that no one would ever answer any questions incorrectly. A candidate may believe an answer is correct but feels that the answer is too easy or too obvious. and that there must be a hidden meaning Such a candidate may search for a hidden meaning and may be. convinced that a right answer is wrong simply by looking for a trick where there is none. 2 Version mccann studyguide police written 20120130. REVIEWING AND CHANGING YOUR ANSWERS, If you have time after you have answered all of the questions go back and make sure that you. have answered every question and that you have put all your answers in the right places Also check that. you have chosen and marked the best answer However don t change your original answer unless you are. absolutely sure that your original answer is wrong or that you marked the wrong answer on the answer. Many studies have been made of the erasures on answer sheets The likelihood is about two to. one that a candidate will erase a correct answer and change it to a wrong answer This is why we suggest. that you don t change your answer unless you are positive that the answer you originally recorded is. NEGATIVE QUESTIONS, Most of the questions are positive questions that is they ask for the best answer or the most. important reason or the best course of action etc A much smaller number of questions are negative. in that they ask for the LEAST desirable course of action the LEAST important principle etc. Many times it is just as important to know what is wrong as it is to know what definitely should. not be done because it would make an already bad situation even worse This is why negative. questions are included in the test Some candidates tend to overlook the negative and try to answer a. question which asks for the LEAST desirable as though it asks for the most desirable The best. indication that you have made this mistake is when you find what appear to be two or more good answers. to a question When this occurs immediately check the question to see if it asks for a positive or negative. WHAT TYPE OF QUESTIONS, All of the questions test the abilities which are important to successful job performance as a. Police Officer Most of the questions deal with situations that a Police Officer might encounter but no. training in police work is necessary in order to answer the questions Many of the questions test your. powers of observation or your ability to apply reasoning and judgment The other questions can be. answered by any person who reads books and newspapers and watches television No previous training. or experience in police work is necessary to earn a very high score on this test. The questions will be in one of five formats 1 the regular format 2 the understanding and. interpreting police text format 3 the police judgment format 4 the observation test format and 5 the. map reading format In the following sections we discuss each of the five formats. THE REGULAR FORMAT, The stem of each question describes the task that you must do to answer the question The stem. of Sample Question 1 on the following page is marked to help you understand the term stem The task. may be to identify the best reason or the most advisable course of action or a different kind of task. First read the stem of the question and try to understand its task. 3 Version mccann studyguide police written 20120130. After you understand the task read each choice If you are reasonably sure that a choice is. wrong put an X beside the choice letter in the question booklet See Choices A and E in Sample. Question 1 On the other hand if you are fairly sure that a choice is the best answer put a in front of. that choice to indicate that fact Choice C in Sample Question 1 is marked as the best answer If you. aren t sure if a choice is right or wrong don t make any marks See Choices B and D in Sample Question. After you have read all the choices and marked the ones you are sure are either right or wrong. you may find that there is only one choice which you are sure is the best If so mark it on the answer. sheet There may be no answer which you are sure is the best but you may have marked off one two or. even three choices that are wrong This will leave you with four three or possibly only two choices. which aren t crossed off At this point exercise your judgment and choose one of those choices that you. have not crossed off and record it on the answer sheet If you have no idea which of the choices not. crossed off is best then perhaps this is a tough question You might want to postpone answering it until. you have gone through the rest of the test, SAMPLE QUESTION 1.
It has been claimed that some persons who commit crimes have an unconscious wish to be. punished It is believed this wish is caused by strong feelings of guilt Which one of the. following actions by a criminal is most likely to be caused by an unconscious desire for. punishment, X A Refusing to reply when questioned by police. B Claiming not to know anything about the crime, C Revisiting the place where the crime was committed. D Giving an obviously false confession when interrogated. X E Accusing someone else of the crime upon capture by the police. The key answer is C, INTERPRETING TEXT MATERIAL, There are some questions which involve interpreting a quoted text reading material The stem. starts with text which is contained within quotation marks see Sample Question 2 The quotation is. followed by a question which asks you to interpret the quotation or to draw a conclusion from it No. training or experience in police work is needed to answer these questions because the answer is contained. in the quotation Base your answer on what it says in the quotation rather than on your outside. knowledge The quotation controls the choice of answer even though you may think that the text isn t. 4 Version mccann studyguide police written 20120130. SAMPLE QUESTION 2, QUOTATION Although drug addiction in itself is not a crime under either federal or state law it is a. condition which easily if not inevitably leads to violations of narcotics laws. Which one of the following conclusions is most reasonable based on the above. X A People who violate narcotics laws are drug addicts. X B Drug addiction should be considered a criminal act. X C Federal and state laws against drug addiction are inevitable. D Federal and state laws cause drug addicts to become criminals. E Drug addicts are prosecuted for crimes rather than for being addicted. The key answer is E, First read the quotation carefully and thoroughly to understand what it is saying Then read the.
question and identify the task which is required Look back at the quotation to be clear on what the. quotation says in regard to the question Note that in Sample Question 2 Choice E was marked with a. and Choice D was not marked at all After reading the quotation again the only correct conclusion is. that drug addicts can be prosecuted for violations of narcotics laws The text does not support the. conclusion that these laws cause drug addicts to become criminals. For each text question first read the quotation Then read each of the choices and mark each with. an X or a just as you did for regular questions Remember that the X indicates a choice which clearly. is not based on the quotation and the indicates a choice which is clearly based on the quotation Then. choose the answer you believe is the best answer, REASONING ABILITY QUESTIONS. The Reasoning Ability subtest consists of five questions designed to measure your ability to apply. the test Many persons have never taken a Police Officer entrance test or may have taken a different one Most people tend to be fearful of the unknown and this guide is intended to familiarize you with our question formats and the instructions for taking the test If you study this guide you should be able to
