Police Promotion Textbooks ... Sources for Discount Agency Pricing ... Everything you need to get started.

What Textbooks Do You Normally Recommend? How Can I Quickly Acquire Enough Copies, and at a Discount?

When designating a book for use in testing, you can designate the whole book or just certain relevantly linked chapters, making it easier to designate what your officers will need to study from one, two or more textbooks. We also offer attorney-written legal exams for agency testing from national or state titles.

We can have our attorney write an exam from any legal guidelines or case law titles etc. your agency uses.

We offer low cost through our partnership with Prentice Hall / Pearson Group where you can custom print only the chapter modules you need from one or more textbooks, and keep the printed books for longer-term future testing.

Your agency saves from 40 - 60%+ off the cost of regular textbooks. If your agency will be testing from the same book or book combination in the future, this is highly cost-effective because you will own and be able to re-use these custom printed books for as long as needed.

You can use our links to Prentice Hall or Delmar / Cengage or other publishers to buy these textbooks direct and at a discount. For large quantities (10 or more) or if paying by P.O. contact the publisher's representative directly;

Another option for your agency to save on the cost of textbooks is CourseSmart which rents eBooks that your candidates can use to study online. If your agency only tests once every few years, this option could be the best value.

Below are the most-used, valid, job-related, legally defensible and most successful police promotion textbooks used today. They successfully cover all ranks, from Corporal to Chief. If you don't know which book might be best for your agency testing, contact us and we can discuss all the police promotional textbooks that our experts and those in other police agencies highly recommend.

Before you choose any non-police titles for testing, such as "trendy" leadership or business titles not specifically written for law enforcement use, remember that job-relatedness and validity are very important topics to consider so that your agency's exams will be 100% legally defensible.

If you are an individual looking for personal coaching and written police promotional exams you can take online, you would be more interested in visiting our site for police promotional exams and assessments for individuals and Legal Exam Preparation for Officers.

Recommended Police Promotional Textbooks: We have experience writing comprehensive and thorough exams for all these great textbooks. We consider the authors and the texbooks to be the best in the field.
