The NJCSC has completed the 2017 New Jersey State Correction Officer Recruit (SCOR) exam cycle on Saturday, August 5, 2017. The next announcement is expected in mid 2019. The results from the most recent exam cycle were released on Friday, September 29, 2017 via mail to candidates.
For information regarding the exam preparation services provided by Critical Concepts and Strategies (CCS Test Prep®) for the 2019 State Correction Officer Recruit (SCOR) entry-level examination, please utilize the form below to submit an inquiry. It is important to note that the New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) has been announcing the SCOR exam “separate” from all other titles — including county corrections officer. It is likely that the NJCSC will need to offer the examination each year to meet the demand for recruits, while all other police, sheriffs, and corrections titles will be on the longer two to three year testing cycle.
Complete and submit this form to make an inquiry and be added to the CCS Test Prep® email list for notifications and information.

The results from the most recent LEE administration in 2016 were released on March 22, 2017, via the web portal and via mail to candidates, while the results from the extra 2017 NJDOC (SCOR) cycle were released on Friday, September 29, 2017 via mail to candidates.

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.
