The CD features an innovative practice test engine powered by MeasureUp™, giving you yet another effective tool to assess your readiness for the exam.
Multiple Test Modes
MeasureUp practice tests are available in Study, Certification, Custom, Missed Question, and Non-Duplicate question modes.
Tests administered in Study Mode enable you to request the correct answer(s) and explanation(s) to each question during the test. These tests are not timed. You can modify the testing environment during the test by selecting the Options button.
Tests administered in Certification Mode closely simulate the actual testing environment you will encounter when taking a certification exam. These tests do not enable you to request the answer(s) and/or explanation(s) to each question until after the exam.
Custom Mode enables you to specify your preferred testing environment. Use this mode to specify the objectives you want to include in your test, the timer length, and other test properties. You can also modify the testing environment during the test by selecting the Options button.
Missed Question Mode
Missed Question Mode enables you to take a test containing only the questions you have missed previously.
Non-Duplicate Mode enables you to take a test containing only questions not displayed previously.
Random Questions and Order of Answers
This feature helps you learn the material without memorizing questions and answers. Each time you take a practice test, the questions and answers appear in a different randomized order.
Detailed Explanations of Correct and Incorrect Answers
You'll receive automatic feedback on all correct and incorrect answers. The detailed answer explanations are a superb learning tool in their own right.
