    Taking the corrections officer exam, questions

    I'm taking the exam in a couple months and wondering what the academy is like? I hear it ranges anywhere from 1 to 3 months and is mostly physically intensive as opposed to academic. Are most CO academies day classes or do you generally spend the entire length living at the academy/home on weekends?

    What kind of prep did you do before going?
    What was your experience like during academy?
    Anything to look out for, or to try and accomplish while there?

    (of course this is all riding on whether or not I actually get hired, but I figure my chances are relatively good as they hire a couple dozen CO's a year)
