Computerised Study Kit

Advance Training's Computerised Study Kit offers much more than just a large number of multiple choice questions, it actively uses the power of the computer to assist your learning and help you to pass your exams. Questions are allocated to subject areas and because the software remembers your answers it can build up a picture of your strengths and weaknesses which is then used to target your final revision as the exam approaches.

This is why the Computerised Study Kit has often been called "your personal tutor on a computer"

Now in our 21st year, the Computerised Study Kit has been used quite literally by tens of thousands of police officers and more than half of all Police forces.  Our pass rate is consistently 2-3 times better than the national average and more than 95% of our personal users would recommend our software to a colleague.

What people say...

My study method was to 'hammer' the questions. Even if I was sat in front of the TV I would just do maybe 20 questions. Generally I would sit and do 50 questions at a time. For me it worked really well. I managed 61%. Easy to use and if there were issues with questions then I got a speedy reply.
