This link will lead you to the official version of the study guide provided by CBP.  Yes, I stole it from their site, since they have a tendency to move it around and when they do that my links don't work.  See the warning at the bottom of this page.  I want all of you to pass with the best score you possibly can.

Study Guide


WARNING! This is an exact copy of the study guide that OPM will mail to you. The download is 62 pages and is in pdf (Adobe Acrobat) format. If you do not already have Adobe Acrobat, click HERE to download it for free now. You will need to use your "BACK" button to return to this web site.

I have put together a little helper page with information and tables that you will not not find in the official study guides. Pay particular attention to the table design. A lot of ALT test takers have told me that these tables saved their butts! You will be allowed to draw the tables out and use them during the test.

DO NOT let yourself be lulled into a false sense of security by the relative simplicity of the examples given in the official OPM test preparation materials. The Spanish is particularly easy compared to the real thing. They have become slightly more realistic in the last year, but I still highly recommend the commercially available study guide. If you want to excel and not merely squeak by (or worse yet, FAIL), get the Learning Express Study Guide shown above. Is your future worth fifteen bucks?

All sales purchased from this site through Amazon.com help to keep this web site running.
