Purpose of the Manual
The purpose of this manual is to help you prepare to take the U.S. Border Patrol Test. This manual will familiarize you with the U.S. Border Patrol Logical Reasoning Test, the Spanish
Language Proficiency Test, and the Artificial Language Test (ALT) and will give you a chance to study some sample questions and explanations for the correct answers to each question. If you
have not had much practice taking written, multiple-choice tests, you will have an opportunity to see what the tests look like and to practice taking questions similar to those on the tests.
Organization of the Manual
The manual is organized into four sections. The first section provides some tips for taking the U.S. Border Patrol Test. The second section provides preparation material for the U.S. Border
Patrol Logical Reasoning Test and a practice test with explanations for the answers to the practice test. Sample questions for the Spanish Language Proficiency Test follow in the third
section. The final section provides a practice test for the ALT along with explanations for the answers to the practice test.
