  • The content and feel of each of our simulations is designed to recreate the same experience found on the actual exam. As you become more comfortable with the computer testing format, you will be able to focus more on what is best for the patient and less on how the computer works.
  • Separate scoring for Information Gathering and Decision Making is provided at the end of each simulation.
  • An analysis of your positive and negative choices is also produced. A complete post-test review of the entire simulation using color-coded options will allow you to quickly see your correct and incorrect selections.
  • A detailed review of each section will explain what was the best course of action and how you can improve your test-taking.
  • Each simulation requires 1 token to play. Once you complete a simulation, you may repeat that simulation for a period of two weeks without using another token.
Having technical problems with a simulation? There is often an easy solution! Please see the Online Exam Practice: Problems/Solutions section of our FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) page for the most common problems and solutions.
