"I recently took an exam through Police Exam Solutions and wanted to share my thoughts with you. The process to sign up was very easy and thorough. They followed up with email instructions on everything. They were very helpful when I reached out by phone to ask questions before signing up. I especially appreciated the PPI essay questions. It gave each individual a chance to express who they are and what they believe in as an individual. The test was challenging, but overall it was a very smooth process and I was very happy with the results."
