Corrections Officer Test Advice For Applicants

If you’re planning on taking the correctional officer test in the near future, you must know that preparation is extremely important. If you are able to, I encourage you to start studying for the exam as soon as you possibly can.

Seriously don’t show up on the day of the test under prepared. If you can afford it, I suggest investing in a Correctional Officer Study Guide days or even weeks before your test.

The Civil Service Exam For CO’s

The correctional officer civil service exam was designed as a tool to measure a potential candidates judgment, reasoning, and reading capabilities through various exercises. Some applicants have sailed through this test, while  other have failed miserably.

Here are the six major test categories you’ll likely see on the Correctional officer exam:

  • Mathematics
  • Reading/Writing Comprehension
  • Spelling/Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Incident Writing
  • Memory Recognition

Again if you are weak in any of the sections above, I suggest investing in a  study guide if possible.  You can get a resourceful book at your local book store or download one here.

Here are some benefits of a correctional officer study guide:

  • Access to Practice Exams – It is time to stop guessing and find out what questions are on the exam.
  • Exact topics on the exam and Their Purpose – Getting the right answer is easier when you know what they want to hear
  • How to Answer Trap Questions – Every exam will throw in questions to destroy momentum and disqualify you. Learn how to identify them and answer them.
  • In Depth Analysis of the Toughest Questions – Instead of just getting an answer key, you’re going to get a full analysis.
  • And Much, Much, More

I hope this article has helped in some way.
