Hope you're enjoying this wonderful summer we're having. At the same time, for those planning to take the State test, I hope you've spent some time getting ready for the September 14th PI exam.
Our class begins Saturday, August 3rd at 9am in my office. There are five Saturdays in August this year. We're taking advantage of that. After our last class, 8/31, you'll have two full weeks remaining to get ready for 9/14.
Remember, the test is Detective exam is 75 questions; of which you have to get 70 correct. That means you must score a 93% to pass. You are given 90 minutes to answer those 75 questions. That means you have approximately 1 minute and 5 seconds to read, assess and answer each question.
You can do it! : )) But, remember, that means we take no question lightly. (Every question and answer matters!)
We'll spend 80% of our time doing practice tests, and 20% going over test tactics and review. Presently, I have more than 300 practice test questions and answers. Attached is a sample test. The focus of this prep class is identifying your strong and weak areas - then steadily reducing your weak areas to a minimum.
The advantage of the spreadsheet is I've divided the questions into five (5) categories: Illinois Law, US Law, James Gilbert Textbook, Illinois private detective rules and business practices, and security (Fischer and Collins textbooks). The security section is for folks taking the private security contractor exam.
By the way, I will be selling the 300+ questions and answers on a CD for $299. For folks attending the class it's only $99. Credit cards accepted. More on that later...
Also, very soon, I will be begin uploading "Pop Quizzes" to Youtube for you to practice. Additional details later...
Have a good week. Any questions, call me: 224.238.7848.
