I have not tested for it myself, but I was talking to a friend who is a marshall yesterday. The test used to be VERY hard. However, due to too many blacks failing the test, it was found to be discriminatory. Therefore, the test now is a joke so the illiterate blacks can pass. He estimated the test to be on a high middle school to low high school level. One example he told me of... (paraphrased from memory, but you get the idea) Prisoner X has to be in court at 8 AM, prisoner Y has be be in court at 11AM. Which prisoner has to be in court before 9 AM? This is a "reading comprehension" question. What a sick, disgusting, disgrace. Don't even bother to study. BTW, the Marshalls are great people. I have never met one who is a jerk. TOTALLY unlike the FBI. You have made a good choice, good luck.

I plan to take the test 2001-06-05 in DC. If the study guide is any indication of what the test is going to be like, it should be a breeze. Any one with a grasp of the english language should do fine. Good luck on your test!! G45

Yeah, when I got the study guide I thought they must be joking! ASO544
