As with any examination it is difficult to determine what the specific testing agency may or may not ask. This is a review that will help you determine your weaknesses &/or your strengths in preparing for the specific examination you’re taking. The format of these test questions may or may not be the same format utilized by the NBCE or the NCCAOM agencies.

Registration for a particular examination will allow you to take that examination one time. You will be shown the correct answers upon completion of the exam. Test questions are from 25 years of educational and teaching experience.
