Reviews - What do customers think about Criminal Justice (Cliffs Quick Review)?

EXCELLENT guide for the DSST Criminal Justice & Law Enforcement  Apr 26, 2007
I'm not sure why there hasn't been a review on this book yet, but this book is awesome if you're preparing for the DSST tests. I studied for about a day, took both tests back to back, and got A's on both of them. Just make sure that you know:

1. All of the important Supreme Court decisions (such as Mapp v. Ohio, Gideon v. Wainwright),
2. How criminal and juvenile courts work, (their procedures, etc)
3. The 4th, 5th, and 6th & 14th amendments to the Constitution
4. Everything related to the development of the American police force & crime statistics

The only thing that is missing that you would need outside of the cliffsnotes book is current information on police dept's hiring statistics on minorities and women. At least 4 of the questions on law enforcement test were related to that subject.
