Practice Exam III
Practice Exam III is a 125-question multiple-choice test intended to offer hands-on experience with NCE-like exam taking. Similar to the NCE, the Practice Exam has multiple choice, multiple correct response, calculation, hotspot and drag-and-drop questions. The questions appear individually in the testing window. You may take as long as you wish for each question, but you cannot go back to a question once an answer has been entered. You will advance to the next question by entering an answer, but you cannot leave a question unanswered.
The Practice Exam follows the guidelines described in the Candidate Handbook, including multiple choice, multiple correct response, calculation, hotspot and drag-&-drop questions. The Practice Exam complies with the current NBCRNA format and contains 25% basic sciences; 15% equipment, instrumentation and technology; 30% general principles of anesthesia; and 30% anesthesia for surgical procedures and special populations.
Following completion of the Practice Exam, you will receive a raw score, the time it took to complete the exam, a Pass Probability score reflecting how your score compares to previous Practice Exam takers who went on to pass the NCE, and a list of all your correct and incorrect responses.
All answers to the Practice Exam questions are fully explained and referenced so you may further explore areas of interest or increase your knowledge in areas of academic weakness. You will have access to the referenced answers for not less than 28 days after completing the exam.
