ABPANC is in the process of changing vendors for our Practice Exams. In addition, the Practice Examinations are being updated to match the slight revisions to the CPAN/CAPA examination blueprints and updated references which will take effect with the Fall 2017 examination administration. No practice exams will be available until July 1. You will be able to link to the new vendor beginning July 1 from this website. If you have unused vouchers from uCertify, they will be honored by our new vendor. In the meantime, please contact Marlene Dunham as noted below, to let her know that you have unused vouchers. ABPANC looks forward to offering updated CPAN and CAPA practice examinations as of July 1.
There are 4 CPAN and 4 CAPA 50-question exam forms available for purchase. Each exam has a unique set of questions and was created according to ABPANC’s test blueprint. ABPANC’s practice examination program was developed based upon feedback from candidates, and is designed to be representative of the types of questions seen on the actual CPAN® and CAPA® Examinations!
With the BOGO promotion, get 2 exams for $50 dollars! Candidates can now receive 8 contact hours for completing 2 practice exams.
You can take the practice exams at your own convenience, from your home computer. After each question, you will learn if you answered the question correctly and at least one reference supporting the answer to the question will be displayed. You will have a second opportunity to review the references at the end of the practice examination so that you do not need to stop after each question to look up the answer in the references. At the completion of a practice examination a summary page is provided that lists the questions and the reference(s) on which the answer is based. You will receive a scaled score on overall performance, just like with the actual CPAN and CAPA examinations. The passing scaled score is 450. You will also be provided with domain level feedback which may help you focus your study efforts as you design a study plan.
ABPANC’s Practice Exams are a study tool only. They should be regarded as a tool to assess strengths and weaknesses. It is not intended to serve as a study guide nor should it be used as a substitute for studying. While content may be representative of the type of knowledge and skills tested on the CPAN® and CAPA® certification examinations, this material is not identical to the content of the examinations. A passing score on a practice examination does not in any way guarantee a passing score on any ABPANC certification examination. Use of ABPANC’s Practice Exams is not a requirement for eligibility or for success in passing any ABPANC certification examination.
