How to take a Practice Test
Select the Exam Room tab near the top of the page.
Click on the corresponding green box under the exam you are choosing to practice.
From the main Exam Room grid, select the green box that corresponds with the practice test you want to complete.
Download and print out the practice test and an answer sheet from the links located above the Exam Room’s online answer sheet. In order to best replicate test-day conditions, take the practice test offline under timed conditions. For your convenience, each Exam Room is equipped with a preset timer.
When time expires, transfer your answers from the offline answer sheet to the Exam Room’s online answer sheet and select SUBMIT ANSWERS.
Results are immediate! After you have taken a moment to review your score, immediately launch into a video review.
You should watch the video answer explanations associated with the questions you answered incorrectly or skipped.
You should also watch videos associated with the questions you answered with a guess or a long struggle.
As you complete practice tests, ePrep Analytics tracks your performance in test taking strategies and subject matter content. Select the Study Hall tab to see how you’re doing and watch recommended videos.
