Proctored Exam Preparation and Tips

Tips for taking the exam are as follows;

The exam includes true/false, multiple choice, and short answer questions, therefore your proficiency in reading and writing English is important to successfully pass the exam. If you do not understand an exam question, ask the exam proctor to explain the question. They will not provide the answer. Tip of Spear Inc. will contact you with the results of the exam in order for you to continue your application process.


This exam DOES NOT include any physical activity testing.

  • Ensure that you are well rested and hydrated.

  • Ensure you arrive early to give yourself time to relax and get settled in. Rushing into an exam can result in making rushed choices.

  • If you are one of those people that get anxiety with testing processes, BREATHE.

  • Read through the exam questions slowly to ensure you understand exactly what is being asked of you.

  • Read the scenario question then begin answering the questions.

  • Do not read into the questions. Answer the question as if you have all the information from the question itself.

  • Answer the questions you are sure of first, then work through the remaining questions.

  • If you have a question about what a word means or how a question is presented, you may ask the proctor for clarification. 

  • Answer the scenario question COMPLETELY. Explain your thought process.

  • Participants must have completed the in-class 40 hour training program OR our online course to be eligable to take the exam.


  • Advanced Notice: If you are enrolled in our in-class training the same week of the exam then we will already have notified the Solicitor General's exam proctor of your expected exam attendance, however if you have taken the ABST training from our online training course, or from a different training facility, then we need at least 48 hours advanced notice so we can give the required notice to the Solicitor General's exam proctor.
