Should you prepare for a test? Yes! Preparing for an examination will help you:

  • Gain insight into the knowledge and skills you will be tested on.
  • Relieve test anxiety through a better understanding of what to expect on test day.
  • Assess areas where you may need more practice before actually attempting the test.

Testing Company Resources

Test Preparation Sites

There are many test preparation sites that provide information on the skills measured on a test, sample questions, instructional information, etc. Be cautious when using these sites! Some sites provide free information while others charge a fee. Additionally, these sites do not always reflect current exam content, policies, or procedures.
