Hahaha

Please read the previous post before looking for a free hand out.

Study, then remember what you study for then look for the correct answer

I don't really understand how you see that as a free hand out. In both college and university teachers tell you the lay out of tests and exams ahead of time.

Test styles are multiple choice.


That’s not really a handout to those that said that. And it’s no secret that they are. This a forum to help people out. It’s turning into the opposite.

Thanks man. Knowing the format of the tests doesn't have an effect on whether I study or not; it changes how I study.

Yes, it is going in the opposite direction.
Yes, this forum is to help future candidates/officers out.

Future candidates/Officers need to do a little research on the forum first before asking a question that’s probably been posted 100 times already.

Also, the ministry is going in the opposite direction going softer on Inmates and harder on Officer discipline.

Good luck !

Either answer or do not answer the question. No need for your personal input and opinion when a question is asked.

Yea I don't think the lippy replies seem neccesary, dude was just asking a question and I've followed for the last 60 pages and haven't seen that one asked so it's helpful to me as well.

Tests are multiple choice...filling in the circle.. bubble sheets to mark quicker.

Occurrence, Accident/Injury/Misconduct reports are all hand written unless part of the electronic class
