Why buy, if you can get a free PNP Entrance Reviewer PDF here. And I tell you, this is the best and most updated PNP Entrance Reviewer available on the internet. This is a Question and Answer reviewer. This is all you need if you want to pass the NAPOLCOM or PNP exam.
The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) conducts two (2) sets of police examinations twice a year, one for those who are already in the police service (promotional), and another for those aspiring to enter the Philippines National Police (PNP Entrance).
This free online reviewer is for those who want to pass the PNP Entrance Exam.
IntroIn recent years, working in public schools and offices has lured young men and women and the young professionals. There are two big reasons for this. One is a good salary and two is the security of tenure.
However, it is not very easy to enter public service. Unlike in the private companies where you can be accepted even if you're not a board passer, the public schools and offices require that you pass an eligibility exam before they can absorb you. And this is where the problem lies.
It is hard to pass an eligibility exam. Yearly, thousand examinees are flunking the Civil Service Examination, the Police Entrance Examination, and other exams. The truth is, even the fresh graduates are finding it hard to pass the exam.
Today many young men and woman are aspiring to enter the police service. This is very timely because the government is at war with the lawless and undesirable elements in our society. Now more than ever, the country needs brave and courageous men and women who can be part in the total cleanup and purging of the undesirables in our society.
This free PNP entrance reviewer will surely help aspiring PNP servants to pass the exam. We believe that through this reviewer, the number of passers will increase.
We put so much effort in the making of this reviewer because we want to make sure that those who will use it will not only be able to answer the questions and exercises but will understand them. Understanding is the key to solve the questions and exercises in this reviewer.
We can assure would be takers that the questions and exercises in this reviewer can help them when they take the exam. We interviewed several exam passers and asked them for pointers and advice as to how we should formulate the questions and exercises and they gladly helped us. We have come up with beautiful and informative questions and exercises through the help of these exam passers.
What is so good about this reviewer is that you can use this even in other exam like the Civil Service Examination because the Mathematics and English problems here are almost identical with those in the Civil Service Exam. We really designed these questions in such a way that whatever exam you take, you will not need another reviewer. This reviewer is enough.
Just try understanding all the questions and exercises in this reviewer and you will discover that solving them becomes so easy.

The most common mistake when planting a tree is a digging hole, which is both too deep and too narrow. Too deep and the roots don't have access to sufficient oxygen to ensure proper growth. Too narrow and the root structure can't expand sufficiently to nourish and properly anchor the tree.
As a general rule, trees should be transplanted no deeper than the soil in which they were originally grown. The width of the hole should be at least 3 times the diameter of the root ball or container or the spread of the roots in the case of bare root trees. This will provide the tree with enough worked earth for its root.
