Exam Structure and Format

The Nelson Denny Reading test (also called the Nelson Denny Police Test) takes 45 minutes including instruction time.

There are two sub tests and four scores as below,

Vocabulary Sub Test 80 multiple choice questions. The content is typical of any high school or college textbook.

Reading Comprehension Sub Test 5 short passages are given, also from general high school or college textbooks followed by 38 multiple choice questions based on the given passage.

Usually, about 50% of the questions are factual and the other half inferential. The total reading score is derived by adding the vocabulary score and the reading comprehension score. The reading comprehension scores are doubled to compensate for the greater number of questions in the first subset.

The Nelson Denny reading test (or police test) is also used to identify reading problems to predict academic success, as well as a measurement of positive educational interventions. The most valid academic predictor is the college and high school GPA (.56).

For anyone who needs to take a Nelson Denny's test for a job, well look no further. This book is informative, expresses, and tons of practice available. I use this book for a law enforcement position. It helped me to recognize stem words and how to critically think through different scenarios just by keywords.

I had to take the Nelson Denny Reading Test for a police academy. The actual test is much easier than the study guide would lead you to believe. Despite some errors in the study guide, it will thoroughly prepare you for the test.

    SAT says we need this test for accomodations for additional time tests. How do we get an official test?
