Career Diplomacy is an insider's guide to the Foreign Service as an institution, a profession, and a career. In this thoroughly revised third edition, Kopp and Naland provide an up-to-date, authoritative, and candid account of the life and work of professional US diplomats, who advance and protect this country’s national security interests around the globe. The authors explore the five career tracks—consular, political, economic, management, and public diplomacy—through their own experience and through interviews with more than a hundred current and former members of the Foreign Service. They lay out what to expect in a Foreign Service career, from the entrance exam through midcareer and into the senior service—how to get in, get around, and get ahead. New in the third edition: • A discussion of the relationship of the Foreign Service and the Department of State to other agencies, and to the combatant commands • An expanded analysis of hiring procedures• Commentary on challenging management issues in the Department of State, including the proliferation of political appointments in high-level positions and the difficulties of running an agency with employees in two personnel systems (Civil Service and Foreign Service) • A fresh examination of the changing nature and demographics of the Foreign Service

FSOT Practice Questions are the simplest way to prepare for the FSOT test. Practice is an essential part of preparing for a test and improving a test taker's chance of success. The best way to practice taking a test is by going through lots of practice test questions. Taking lots of practice tests helps ensure that you are not surprised or disappointed on your test day. Our FSOT Practice Questions give you the opportunity to test your knowledge on a set of questions. You can know everything that is going to be covered on the test and it will not do you any good on test day if you have not had a chance to practice. Repetition is a key to success and using practice test questions allows you to reinforce your strengths and improve your weaknesses. Detailed answer explanations are also included for each question. It may sound obvious, but you have to know which questions you missed (and more importantly why you missed them) to be able to avoid making the same mistakes again when you take the real test. That's why our FSOT Practice Questions include answer keys with detailed answer explanations. These in-depth answer explanations will allow you to better understand any questions that were difficult for you or that you needed more help to understand.

I went from failing the Foreign Service Officer Test to scoring in the top 1-2% of all takers. I increased my score by more than 40 points, and improved almost 25 points on the Biographic Questionnaire alone. I've combined background information on the test with practical advice. This book will help you to pass, especially if you've struggled with the Biographic Questionnaire in the past.This book is also poorly written, disorganized and relentlessly inaccurate, written episodically as a stream-of-consciousness monologue, riddled with poorly cited and irrelevant research, lame attempts at humor, and obscure pop culture references that have been painfully and awkwardly insinuated into the text solely for the author's amusement and which will be noticed by very, very few. For some idiot reason, there are a few social media-style hashtags included in it. Probably most damning of all, the author's use of the Oxford comma is inconsistent, for which there is a special place in hell. Keep in mind, this is not a review, this is just the author's description. Enjoy.
