I just received a letter for my POST exam for SFPD. Any LEOs out there that could give me tips on how to prepare for this examination? I'm excited and at the same time nervous.

Thank you

Get a good night sleep before the test and try to stay relax much as possible.

That will give you an idea of what to expect.
Good luck, I take mine this Saturday.

Not a LEO, but I just took mine and it is alot of reading and interpreting type stuff. That's as much as I'm willing to disclose, sorry!

I've taken quite a few POST written tests over the past year. It mainly consists of grammar, spelling and reading comprehension. Just take your time reading through everything and like BoJack said, get a good nights rest. Also if your test is at 8am, eat a good hearty breakfast beforehand since the test can take up to 3-4 hours and will likely tire out your brain.
