What is a practice exam?
A practice exam is a useful tool for discovering if you are adequately prepared to take a state exam. The practice exam is representative of the actual state exam. When scheduling your practice exam, be sure to take into consideration when you would like to take the state exam and the corresponding registration deadlines so that you can be sure to allow ample time for the practice exam as well as time for the Certification office to process your test approval.
