Test guides are designed to familiarize candidates with the format of the test and will provide a description of the subject areas to be tested, along with sample test material. If sample questions are provided, the solution and correct answer will also be provided. Candidates are encouraged to review the "Subjects of Examination" portion of the examination announcement for information on test type and exam content.
Test guides published by the Department of Civil Service are typically targeted to specific entry-level titles and are not provided for every civil service examination. If a test guide is available, it will be indicated on the examination announcement.
