This book should be essential reading for anybody who is about to undertake the Police Assessment Centre process. I have read other books on this subject and this publication is far and away the best. The book is easy to read and the advice given and method of preparation recommended is the best I have seen in any book of its kind.
To achieve the required pass mark at the assessment centre it is essential to prepare well in advance. This publication will assist you in targeting your efforts and by adopting a structured approach to all the tasks. By structuring your approach to the exercises you will then be able to perform to the best of your ability on the day by demonstrating that you have the required skills in the core competencies. Some candidates have the required competencies but fail to adequately demonstrate them effectively. This publication will ensure that you do demonstrate them to the assessors.
The publication is written by an expert, a retired senior police officer who has a thorough knowledge of the selection process. By following the advice given in the publication success will no doubt follow.
I used this book in preparation for the Metropolitan Police Assessment Centre. By following the advice given, I achieved a pass mark of 79% (The pass mark was 50%) Most candidates dread the role play or what is now termed simulation exercise. By following the structured plan given in the book I actually enjoyed the exercise and achieved an A grade.
Be in no doubt, the assessment process will not be easy. Because I read the book in detail, followed the advice given and practiced the exercises, I actually enjoyed the selection event and achieved a grade far higher than I expected.
By purchasing this book, by following the author's advice and by practice and effort, success will follow. I would recommend this book 100%
