This was my fourth time testing for Sergeant and all other times came out in the 20s. This was my first time using J. Harris and improved to #2. J.

From study tips to preparation techniques, and ultimately the confidence to compete and succeed, the J. Harris Academy gave me the tools I needed to make lieutenant on the first exam offered by the City of Chicago in over 10 years!” Read More

Lieutenant Donald Jones, Chicago Police Department

If you are looking for an edge up on your next promotional exam I highly recommend Jim Harris and his staff. They have the knowledge and skill to really make a difference in your score.
