GATB? This is for special constable/transit officers?

From the description it states its for Ontario PATI (POLICE ANALYTICAL THINKING INVENTORY) not for GATB - General Aptitude Test Battery. The nature of both the tests are completely different. So, purchasing that book is a waste of money? I haven't done GATB but I know its a much shorter exam. Good luck!

The book you linked me focuses on PATI, not GATB. So, I was just stating it doesn't have relevant information according to the product description which is " Ontario PATI – RCMP RPAT – Alberta APCAT –British Columbia JIBC – Saskatchewan SIGMA."

You asked if that book is any good for studying for the GATB exam. The Answer is no. If you wanna buy it, go ahead but purchase it from the "used section". Its like $30

what can you recommend for GTAB and WAP, any books that are geared to this? Should I use policeprep?

I mean, I gotta be honest, I don't think you need to study for those. lol

***Here's is NOT sample for for GTAB, seems really easy. Here once WAS a sample, but it was deleted by a moderator, and I hereby vow to NEVER post links again. I understand the Blue Line forums are not here to provide free advertising to pay sites, nor does it exist to do everyone's homework for them.***

WAP is really looking at how well you write. It's only 25 minutes.
