    When I took the exam for law enforcement i used the study guide for their test, and another study guide. The other study guide was more usefull then theirs. I wouldnt have scored that 98 if I only used the one provided.

    The guide is essentially an explanation of how the test works, its ability to help you prepare and learn the right answers is minimal. Taking advantage of all the practice tests out there gets those who might not have been in school for a while ready to take a test again.

    So is the high school on Stafford Street or Quincy Street? The governmentjobs site said Quincy Street, but the Washington-Lee site said Stafford Street.

    Just look on a map, the high school is actually between Stafford/Quincy which run parallel to each other. Get there early and you won't have a problem finding it.

    Is the test the same as Loudouns because the "study guide" looks exactly the same. I just took it in November and I believe we can only take it once in a year according to CWH.

    Five Star decent or great value for your money?

    Best Value in Arlington and not too far of a walk or drive from W&L HS is http://www.highlandermotel.com/hotel-overview.html

    Otherwise you have a Hilton, Marriot, Holiday Inn etc. right near by too if you need a name brand hotel with actual hallways.

    Based on the attendance of the test I went to (Sat. the 8th at 2pm) and what they said, I would assume anywhere from 1,000-1,500 took it.

    I was pretty suprised with the lack of questions that could have a right answer. Seemed like there were so many personality questions and not to many other questions.
