New Jersey Civil Service Commission Entry Level Exam

It’s not about passing, it’s about excelling.

Most take the New Jersey Civil Service Commission’s Law Enforcement Entry Level (LEE) Exam with the idea that they just need to pass to be hired. But just one incorrect answer on the civil service exam can place your score below hundreds of qualified candidates, eliminating your chance to be considered for these limited positions. Candidates in today’s competitive job market can’t afford to reduce their chances when a fraction of a point could be the difference between a job becoming yours…or someone else’s.

A position in law enforcement provides an opportunity to help others as no other job can. A career in law enforcement provides more than most jobs in today’s economy including: stability, exceptional pay, great benefits and a secure retirement.

Our Police Entry Test Preparation course covers, in detail, each type of question you will encounter in the actual exam. We also go over the life experience survey and work-style questionnaire that is also graded in the test. This portion of the test is where candidates either score very well or very poorly, depending on how they answer the statements. You will receive practice tests as well as extra material to practice on after the course.

There are several study options to choose from (see below for differences).

There is no difference in the instruction between  the in-class or online courses. Course candidates are able to access additional 72- or 144- hour blocks which can be purchased for discounted prices.

The one day course offers an in-depth review of all types of questions experienced on the test as well as showing you test taking strategies on how to beat your competition.  You will receive a workbook containing a take-home simulated exam and more practice questions for continued preparation.

The two day class covers all the material from the one day course, an in-class simulated exam and review, and in-depth look at the hiring process and how to increase your chances at getting your dream career.  You will also receive additional take-home practice questions.

NOTICE: Currently, NJ CSC is accepting applications for the Correction Officer Recruit title (State Corrections).  The test prep course is the same as the LEE Exam prep course.  The LEE Exam is tentatively scheduled to be administered in the fall of 2019.  The below classes in Union City are test prep classes for the NJ CSC LEE Exam (not the State Corrections – That course is available online only).  Keep checking this site as we will be scheduling more one and two day courses in Northern and Southern NJ.  Click here to join our mailing list to be kept updated!

Our courses give you exactly what you need to score higher on your exam.  No fluff, no multiple long breaks, no long lunch hours, no useless fill-in-the-blank exercises, no war stories. Other groups give you “fluff” to eat away time in order to justify their hefty price tags.  Our instructors are current and retired ranking police officers who have experience in test-taking and showing others how to succeed.

 Do you have the right stuff to be a law enforcement officer?  Take our Law Enforcement Personality Assessment Quiz and see how you score.  These type of questions are similar to the Work Style Questionnaire used on the test.  We address these, and the other areas of the test to help you score better.
