How do I prepare for the exam? What do I study?
All tests given by the City are job-related and designed to evaluate the applicants knowledge, skills and abilities required to perform the functions of the job. Read the job announcement then study any materials that you feel would directly or indirectly relate to the necessary knowledge, skills and ability to perform the job tasks listed in the example of duties for the position.

Example: If two of the job requirements listed state performing mathematical calculations and interpreting regulations, some to the exam questions probably will cover math and reading comprehension.

If you need reasonable accommodation at any phase of the application or testing process, please make your request in writing for reasonable accommodation as described on the job announcement.
