Blackstone's Police Q&As 2018 are the essential revision tool for all police officers sitting the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRE® Part I). Written in partnership with the best-selling Blackstone's Police Manuals, the only study guides endorsed by the College of Policing, the Q&As' experienced author team follow subjects in the same sequence as the Manuals, providing the most authoritative means of self-testing outside of the promotion examinations.

Blackstone's Police Q&A: Evidence and Procedure 2018 contains hundreds of multiple-choice questions designed to reinforce knowledge and understanding of the Evidence and Procedure Manual. Matching the only format of questions you will see in an NPPF Step Two Legal Examination, each question has a detailed and comprehensive answer that highlights not only the correct response, but also the reasoning behind the incorrect responses, allowing candidates to highlight any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. Full cross-references to the relevant Manual paragraphs and Keynotes encourage more effective studying, while a question checklist helps you track your progress.

The 2018 editions of this popular series contain important updates, reflecting changes in the Blackstone's Police Manuals. This edition of Evidence and Procedure includes new questions from across the 2018 syllabus, including important updates relating to Bail. Other titles in the series are: Crime Q&A 2018, Road Policing Q&A 2018, and General Police Duties Q&A 2018.

Blackstone's Police Q&As are also available as part of our online Blackstone's Police Manuals and Q&As service: http://www.blackstonespolice.com
