I'm a FT officer for a non-civil service town. I am taking the upcoming civil service exam. Any study tips or suggested study guides to get a high score.

As a PO you already know, the best tip is use common sense. You can use all the books under the sun, (which i did). You can even try some voodoo ( which I did not). But when it comes down to it, the questions are straight forward. A good night sleep, a light breakfast, maybe even a red-bull before test time.

If all else fail, a little O.C. in the class room to ween out the competition! :evil:

You'll be fine. I work in Mass now but I worked in NH before and the night before the civil service exam I had a dwi/oui arrest. I did not get a chance to go to bed because it was an accident w/ serious injury. I got home, took a really cold shower and went and took the test. I was punch drunk but I ended getting a 99%. Don't sweat it, but if you can, get the night before the test off because YOU WILL get a cluster. Murphy's Law. :sl:

Best advice I can give you is mentioned already. Get a good nights rest, eat a good breakfast .....and don't stress over it. When I just took the test without stressing over it, I did much better. Just go with the flow and you will do fine.

Good Luck to all taking the test.

When you take the test, take your time, there's no rush, read the question, study the answers, then and make your decision. BTW if you're not a VET, you better ace the test or think of another job. Good luck!

:? Good luck. I'd stick with your job now. With all the Vets coming back, civil circus jobs are slim and none.
