There are four 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! Each practice examination contains 50 questions and costs $50. For a limited time, you get a free examination for each one you purchase. With the BOGO promotion, you can now get 100 questions for $50 dollars, or 200 questions for $100! 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 examinations should be regarded as a tool to assess strengths and weaknesses. They are not intended to serve as a study guide nor should they be used as a substitute for studying. A passing score on a practice examination does not in any way guarantee a passing score on any ABPANC certification examination. Use of a practice examination is not a requirement for eligibility or for success in passing any ABPANC certification examination.
Helpful Tip: You will not be allowed to print pages listing the questions and references. You are encouraged to have a copy of Study References (Appendix D) — with you as you take a practice examination and make notes about which references/page numbers are cited.
