Updated to reflect the most recent requirements for correction officers in jurisdictions across the country, including sheriff's departments, this manual presents practice in reading comprehension, math, memory retention, and ability to fill out and process official forms. The authors, both highly experienced retired law enforcement officers, also present an overview of correction officers' duties and requirements. A general brush-up review covers all test topics. New in this edition is a review of an additional question type that appears on many regional exams, dealing with coding (i.e., understanding of forms). Also new is addition of the Correctional Officers' Creed, issued by the international Association of Correctional Officers, as well as updated guidelines for the oral interview. A diagnostic test and five full-length practice exams come with answer keys, diagnostic charts, and answer explanations. All exams are similar in content to those given across the country.
