Additionally, the Online Practice Exam contains specific and realistic exam questions from each of the relevant exam categories you need to know for any entry-level licensing exam, as well as for the Board Certification exam.

NCBTMB’s Online Practice Exam is the only study tool created by NCBTMB for the NCBTMB Board Certification Exam. With over 2,600 practice exam questions to choose from—and hundreds of questions from each relevant exam category—it is the most realistic study tool available.

While NCBTMB’s Online Practice Exam is meant to help prepare you for the exam, use of this product does not guarantee a passing exam score. Additionally, it is far more important to understand the meaning behind the questions and answers—simply memorizing answers will not provide an adequate exam score or deeper understanding of the subject matter.

  • $49.97 for three-month subscription
  • $79.97 for six-month subscription

Purchasing the Online Practice Exam is only one step towards best preparing yourself for your entry level licensing exam or Board Certification exam. Here’s a few tips from VP of Educational Support, Donna Sarvello, on how you can make the most of your study time with the Online Practice Exam:

  • Keep books near you. Look up terms you don’t understand rather than skipping over them.
  • Don’t just memorize questions and answers—truly work on understanding the concepts so you can apply your new knowledge to other relevant exam questions.
  • Don’t skip over words or terminology you don’t know. Look them up.
  • Own the material. Digest it. This is a TOOL—use it that way!

Most importantly: There are no tools that guarantee that you will pass any test. This tool will show you similar questions and answers that will be on entry level licensure exams and the Board Certification exam. Understanding the terminology on the tests and how the exam questions are written will give you the confidence and knowledge you need to pass a test. As stated above, you must understand every word and digest the material.

In short, it all depends on your learning style. From the day you sign up to take the NCBTMB Board Certification exam, you have three months to take the exam. That may be the perfect opportunity to purchase a three-month subscription. Ask yourself what will be best for you and make your decision based on that. There is no right or wrong time to purchase the Online Practice Exam.
