I am a student at Kaplan University studing to be a CSI. I was looking into the IAI test for CSI and was wondering if anyone knows if there is a pretest anywhere? I have read the books that the IAI says to read for the test but just wanted to see if there was a pretest to take and see how i would do first. Thanks for the help. Sam
The IAI is the International Association for Identification they have the test to get your CSI certification didn't know if anyone knew of a place to get a pre-copy of the test.
Crime Scene Certification
Crime Scene Certification is a tri-level program:
•Level I -- Certified Crime Scene Investigator
•Level II -- Certified Crime Scene Analyst
•Level III -- Certified Senior Crime Scene Analyst
Each level requires a vigorous testing process with a minimum passing score of 75 percent
I am happy and privelaged to say that I have taken the IAI's CSI test, and passed it. I have not seen any pretest for it. Generally speaking, alot of the questions come from the questions at the end of the chapters. If you study all of the those questions, and study all of the definitions, you should do pretty good. The test was 200 questions, so make sure you know all of both books.
I took the Senior Crime Scene Analyst test back in May. I took a book review class right before the test. Alot of my questions came from within the chapters, side margin, and notes under pictures. I don't know of any pre test for the tests.
I'm currently employed as a CSI and am gearing up to take the CCSI test. Anyone take it lately and can give me a heads up what to study? I have the required textbooks, but there aren't any study guides for the test. I've asked around and none of the other CSIs in my region have taken the test. Just looking for some advice. Thanks.
I taken the test almost 5 years ago. I am taking the recertification test in a few months. All I can say study every word even under pictures. I took the Senior Crime Scene Analyst. Jan johnson with Forensic Pieces teaches a 4 day book review class. I strongly suggest taking that class.
Thanks for the reply. I keep checking the Forensics Pieces website for a class near me (as in a neighboring state) but the nearest one is 14 hours away. I may have to bite the bullet and fly out to a class.
