Read what your fellow officers have to say about studying with our police promotion exams and flashcards!


Since 1985 thousands of police officers around the nation have been promoted using our police promotional exams and assessments to prepare.


Read what just a few of them have to say.

We want to add YOU to this list!


"I am through the entire process and have been promoted to Lieutenant after finishing first in the process.

I have no doubt that the system used by your company allowed me to excel to the top and without it I would not have done as well.

I did not find the program until late in the process and had no idea it would be as in depth as it is.

The program is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone seeking promotion. 


Thank you,


 Lt. Jason Koetters"

-Quoted with Permission


"I am happy to say that my PoliceCareer.com study materials were on point!


"I topped a test taken by 23 other members of my department.  I really feel as though the materials I utilized from PoliceCareer.com paved the way for that success. 


I am happy to report that I was promoted to Sergeant.  I will be recommending your materials to others for the next exam.


Thank you again for an outstanding product!"


New Sergeant in Massachusetts

Quoted with permission. 


"Just wanted to thank you and your company for the service you provide with the online tests.


This is the second time I have used your company. 5 years ago I used your online tests to help me and I was promoted to Corporal. Several months ago I again enrolled with your company to prepare for the upcoming Sergeants test.


Today I just found out I finished #1 on the Sergeants exam and will be promoted in a few weeks!


I read the books and took the practice exams and scored a 91 on my test and also scored very high on my oral boards! So thanks again!"



Sgt. CJ, Pennsylvania
Quoted with permission.


"Out of 50 applicants, I scored #1 with the help of your exams.


My partner also purchased the First-line Supervisors exams and he placed #3. Thank you for your assistance!"


New Supervisor in Ohio

Quoted with permission.




"I used your program to prepare for the Sergeant's exam at my department. Your program was very helpful and relevant to the written test I took.

I scored 94% percent on the exam and placed #2 overall among all the candidates.

I was promoted to Sergeant last week and your program was an important part of my success.

"I will absolutely come back to your program when the opportunity to test for Lieutenant arises."

Sergeant Roy V. – California

Quoted with permission.




"I wanted to thank your company for the help testing for both the written and oral promotional exams for lieutenant.


I received a 94 on written and top score on oral boards, and I will promoted to lieutenant!


Please do post my email. It's a great program and will help anyone willing to put the time into studying for the test." 


Thanks again Lt. DB, Ohio.

Quoted with permission.




"Sir, I would first like to thank you for the time and effort you put into your product. This was my first promotional test and I had no clue what to expect.


I found every aspect of the online learning and downloadable tests priceless in my preparation. I not only  achieved the highest score on our written exam, I beat everyone else by 10+ points.


Going into my oral assessment I knew that I had to score very high due to seniority and the overall weight of the assessment. Utilizing your online video resources for a better oral assessment gave me the edge I needed. Again, I placed first on my oral assessment with an overall 69 out of 75.


I will quote my chief when she gave me the news of my new promotion, "it wasn't even close." I can only thank you for assisting those committed individuals to achieving their goals."



Sgt. JF, Ohio
Quoted with permission. Note: online video resources courtesy of our affiliate Finests.com


"I just wanted to give some feedback regarding my experience with your site.


I recently took a Sergeant promotional exam at my agency and used your website at the urging of some co-workers.


I am happy to report I finished #1 overall and was immediately promoted to the position of Sergeant!


I studied for the written exam using the flashcards and practice tests on a daily basis. I know this study material helped me focus and provided direction for my efforts.

I found your program to be a worthy investment and will continue to recommend your services to other members of my department in the future."

New Sergeant in CA -
Quoted with permission.


"I joined your website last December. Putting myself on a strict schedule and taking over fifty tests on the site, I was preparing for the Lieutenant Promotional Exam with my agency.

Well, now that both portions of the test are over, I am happy to say that I finished first in the process."

Mark Catania, CT
Quoted with permission.

"Dear PoliceCareer Testing Center,


In March of this year, I bought four of your testing materials and used your oral board videos.  I was one of seventeen officers that tested for Lt.  After two months of studying using your materials, I came out in first place and now am a Lt. at my department.  I could not have done this without your study materials and videos.  THANK YOU."


Lt. CR, Tennessee

Quoted with permission 



"Just got the good news, that I've been promoted to sergeant!

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind, that without Policecareer.com, this never would have happened."

- Sgt. Steve L., PA - Quoted with permission.

"I just wanted to thank you for this site! It really made me focus 110% on the testing process.

I finished #2 out of 46 overall and am getting promoted November 7th."

Thanks again, for I know I wouldn’t have done as well had I not utilized your services. I will definitely be recommending this service to future sergeant candidates."


- Sgt. R. Reed, MO- Quoted with permission.

I am pleased to inform you that I scored first on both the written test and the oral interview.


I am going to be promoted from the rank of corporal to the rank of sergeant on December 21.

Thank you again for offering this program!"

Keep up the great work!"

Member From Austin, TX  - Quoted with permission.

Included in a Police Career Premium Membership is an In-Basket Assessment

Clients using our Police Career PREMIUM Package can also take our example Police Promotion In-Basket Assessment - a timed, 90 minute, difficult, 12+ item in-basket originally designed for a Lieutenant / Captain / Commander promotion process. Request information about our Police Career Premium Membership.

Regardless of rank you are testing for, this practice in-basket will identify your:

problem analysis

organizational ability



judgment and

general supervisory and management knowledge and skills.

You can use this in-basket exercise to practice with as often as you like.

Think in-basket assessments are EASY? They're NOT, and you'll see why.

You don't just read a few phone messages and emails and jot down a few notes.

An in-basket assessment you will undergo for a police promotion contains pages and pages of background material and takes a great deal of concentration and organizational ability, and the ability to work quickly under pressure.

You must also study pages of material such as:

background narrative

complicated work scenarios



organizational charts

and you must take accurate and detailed notes.

Then you are presented with a detailed scenario along with 10 to 20 in-basket items, all the while a clock is ticking down the time.

Here are some of the dimensions you are graded on in an in-basket assessment center exercise;

Comprehension ability

Written communication ability

Verbal communication ability

Planning and organization

Problem analysis

Ability to take risks





At the conclusion of the in-basket you are interviewed by the assessors. Your notes are reviewed and discussed with you, and you are judged on:

how quickly and thoroughly you analyze the material and scenarios

how quickly and accurately you complete the many items in the assessment

how accurate and complete your written notes are

how well you verbalize your analysis, actions, conclusions and responses to the assessors.
Finally, your overall rating also takes into account how thorough and knowledgeable you were on your analysis and action on each item, and whether you properly delegated or handled the material.

Do you know that 1/3 - 1/2 of police promotional candidates FAIL their first in-basket assessment because they walk in, unprepared, thinking it will be EASY?

They are then shocked and surprised at what they find. Don't be one of these candidates. PREPARE NOW.
