Preface
As part of the authors' continuing efforts to provide quality reviewers
not only to students but also to aspiring civil servants, the authors have come up
with this _ytf>SA. Civil Service Reviewer for Professional and
SubProfessional Levels.
This book presents over seven hundred questions in Mathematics,
English, Filipino, the Constitution, Inductive Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning.
The Mathematics subtest contains questions on topics ranging from basic
operations to business math problems. Also included is a 20item subtest on
Data Sufficiency to help you improve your analytical ability and critical thinking
skills. The English subtest meanwhile, has questions on Alphabetizing and
Paragraph Development aside from the questions on Vocabulary Development,
Analogy, Identifying Errors, Correct Usage and Reading Comprehension. The
Filipino subtest, on the other hand, has questions on Talahulugan (Vocabulary
Development) which is divided into three subtests namely: Kasingkahulugan,
Kasalungat, and Mga Kawikaan. This subtest also has Wastong Gamit
(Correct Usage), Pagkilala sa Mali (Identifying Errors), Pagunawa sa Binasa
(Reading Comprehension) and Pagtatalata (Paragraph Development). The
subtest on the Philippine Constitution aims to refresh you on your knowledge of
the Highest Law of the Land which is essential as a citizen of the country. The
Inductive Reasoning as well as the Abstract Reasoning subtests also
comprises the last portion of the review material.
Prepare for your Civil Service Examinations the JNKjSfi. way.
