Our StudiGuide courses are intended as a supplementary aid to you who are looking to maximize your study time. They are also helpful in preparing for the written examination and will help you to retain knowledge in a particular subject, without having to spend excessive time in learning stuff not presented during your written examination. You will also be provided with practice exams and audio of each tested subject, to allow for review while travelling to and from the academy, during breaks, while running, etc.

When used properly, in conjunction with your POST workbooks, our StudiGuide courses are a valuable tool for you, as the material provided in each course has been time tested for more than fifteen years, assisting recruits during their academy training to receive and maintain some of the highest test scores and overall grade point averages in their academy classes.
