This open-competitive exam is very challenging with as many as 50% of candidates commonly failing the test while countless others achieve such low passing scores that they render themselves out of contention to be considered.
The Montgomery County Police Consortium contracts a private vendor, I/O Solutions (IOS), for use of the vendor’s newest nationally validated competitive examination. Candidates should be aware that the study guide and practice items provided as part of the exam announcement often do not accurately reflect the full scope of the test that will be administered.

CCS Test Prep®utilizes the most contemporary and sophisticated technology to enhance the learning experience of each student. In-class exams are formally scored utilizing sophisticated Scantron scoring equipment and a proprietary software-based scoring system developed by Dr. Paprota. This allows for the production of an individualized scoring report for each student. CCS Test Prep® students receive an individualized scoring report for both a Preliminary Diagnostic Examination administered at the beginning of the program as well as for the formal, Final Examination administered at the conclusion of the program. As a result, each student is keenly aware of his or her strengths and weaknesses to better guide the student’s studies as he or she prepares for the actual examination. This important aspect of the course further enhances the learning experience provided through the well-developed in-class instruction, PowerPoint presentations, very focused course materials, and take-home practice examinations.
