dc.abstract.en Analysis of the theoretical simulation results of public examinations for candidates in the guide, as well as in city guide, which was carried out in order to assess students' knowledge of geography - potential staff at the tourist market is presented. Studies have been raised in the context held in Poland in 2013 deregulation of mentioned above professions and are in addition of group works carried out in recent years [1; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8] relating to the expectations of the tourism market in the training of personnel for queries of Tourism. In the case of students of "geography" good results at delivery of theoretical examination for a tour guide are observed compared with the students of "tourism and recreation", which allows, among other things, to predict their good theoretical preparation in the case of the labor market. Thematic units with the lowest results of the solving problems among geographers are highlighted: history of culture and art, the service of tourist traffic, as well as tourist geography of Poland. With such high results among students geographers should be considered the feasibility of graduates geographical and tourism departments with some courses, training guides candidates. As part of this study, theoretical and practical thematic blocks are implemented in undoubtedly more hours than during the course for candidates for guides. It should, however, draw attention to the fact that the approximate simulation disputable situations conducting tours on objects or statements on any given topic, auto presentation, work with a map, driving directions and designations etc. were not topics to be ignored also in geographical education program. Clear disproportion difficulty level of theoretical examination for candidates in city guides towards examination on guide is defined. Among geographers there are few people who successfully passed it on the level of single percent polled population. In connection with the new rules, which operate in Poland since January 1, 2014, in the absence of verification of knowledge trainees on the state assessment, these defects can cause humiliation of the level of preparation of personnel in the market guide. pl
