This is a computer based exam asking an undetermined number of multiple choice questions (the exam is adaptive). This means that the next question you get on the exam will be decided by the answer you gave to the previous question. If you answered the question correctly then your next question will be more difficult and vice versa. The exam has between 70 and 150 questions.

The computer based test is a bit different than a regular exam. For example, the length of the computer based test is not specified. The student will answer questions one by one until the application has determined that the test taker has either passed or failed. Going through such process could be very stressful as you have the feeling that the computer is in charge, not you.

You can go through up to 2,300 questions included in this package. After that, you will surely pass the exam on your first attempt! Get your practice exams today!
