I am taking 4 tests for the Columbus Police Dept. tomorrow. One of the tests is called a B-PAD. I could use some advise on this one.

I will be seated in front of a TV and a video camera. I will be presented with 8 video scenarios or situations. At the end of each of the 8 scenes I will have 45 seconds to respond orally as if I am actually the officer at the scene.

If anyone has taken this or a similar test I would appreciate all the advice you can give me. This is the most important part of the testing and I don't know how to prepare for it or what to expect.

Thank you.

I though you needed one of us to pee in a cup for you. Sorry.

Seriously. You'll do fine. Just relax and only shoot at the white guys.

Is that test too dangerous for the rest of us to take (Law Enforcment Only)?

Anyway, have you been through OPOTS? Do they cover this sort of thing? I was just curoius, I would hope they would. Anyway, I would just follow your instincts and do what seems right and not worry so much.
