“Oral” Assessments

Oral Assessment Exercises coverHow to Be Successful on “Oral” Assessment Exercises for Police Promotion
Schroeder and Lombardo

This was submitted by a reader who is also a fan of The “Blog” of “Unncessary” Quotation Marks (which, by the way, is hilarious!)  This book is available in a variety of libraries – mostly universities.  I can’t speak to the quality of its content because all I’ve seen is the cover, but this is funny!

Mary and I are as guilty as anyone of unnecessary quotation marks, but why on earth would they feel the need to set apart “Oral” with quotation marks?  It gives the title a whole different connotation.  Yes, I do have the sense of humor of a twelve-year-old boy.



  1. Usually acronyms have periods (O.R.A.L.), however according to the product blurb on Amazon, it’s for verbal civil service examinations.

    Reminds me of that GMAT prep book that was completely center aligned.

  2. Like Holly I have the sense of humor like a twelve year old boy even 40 years later.

  3. **snerk** *snort* You said oral!!

    “Holly”, me and my junior high sense of humor is right there with you.


  4. This book does follow two other sexy talk books. I thought I was the only one with a dirty mind. 🙂
