Review the information contained in the Examination Bulletin carefully.  The “Examination Information” section of the Examination Bulletin contains specific information regarding the type of examination to be used and how examination scores will be determined.  Examinations administered by ARB may include a written test, Supplemental Application, Statement of Qualifications, and/or a Qualifications Appraisal Interview.  The “Scope” section of the Examination Bulletin lists the subject areas to be covered by the examination.

If you have a disability that may require accommodation in the examination process, mark the appropriate box on the State Examination Application (STD. 678) and review the California Department of Human Resources publication Important Information for Persons with Disabilities Applying for State Civil Service Examinations.

Examinations for some positions used at ARB (Information Technology Analysts, Office Assistants, Staff Services Analysts, etc.) may require applicants to apply via the Internet, complete an on-line education and experience examination process, and/or appear at a test site to take a computer-based examination. These examinations are typically administered by the California Department of Human Resources. Information regarding these examinations can be obtained on-line from the California Department of Human Resources..
