Using PrepLogic Practice Tests, Preview Edition
PrepLogic is designed to be user friendly and intuitive. Because the software has a smooth learning curve, your time is maximized because you start practicing almost immediately. PrepLogic Practice Tests, Preview Edition has two major modes of study: Practice Test and Flash Review.
Using Practice Test mode, you can develop your test-taking abilities, as well as your knowledge, through the use of the Show Answer option. While you are taking the test, you can expose the answers along with detailed explanations of why the given answers are right or wrong. This gives you the ability to better understand the material presented.
Flash Review is designed to reinforce exam topics rather than quiz you. In this mode, you will be shown a series of questions but no answer choices. Instead, you will be given a button that reveals the correct answer to the question and a full explanation for that answer.
Starting a Practice Test Mode Session
Practice Test mode enables you to control the exam experience in ways that actual certification exams do not allow:
To begin studying in Practice Test mode, click the Practice Test radio button from the main exam-customization screen. This enables the options detailed in the preceding list.
To your left, you are presented with the option of selecting the preconfigured practice test or creating your own custom test. The preconfigured test has a fixed time limit and number of questions. A custom test allows you to configure the time limit and the number of questions in your exam.
The Preview Edition included with this book has a single preconfigured practice test. You can get the compete set of challenging PrepLogic practice tests at PrepLogic.com to make certain you're ready for the big exam.

If the test is timed, the time remaining is displayed in the upper-right corner of the application screen. It counts down minutes and seconds remaining to complete the test. If you run out of time, you will be asked if you want to continue taking the exam or if you want to end it.
Your Examination Score Report
The Examination Score Report screen appears when the Practice Test mode ends as the result of time expiration, completion of all questions, or your decision to terminate early.
This screen provides you with a graphical display of your test score with a breakdown of scores by topic domain. The graphical display at the top of the screen compares your overall score with the PrepLogic Exam Competency Score.
The PrepLogic Exam Competency Score reflects the level of subject competency required to pass this vendor's exam. Although this score does not directly translate to a passing score, consistently matching or exceeding this score does suggest you possess the knowledge to pass the actual vendor exam.
Reviewing Your Exam
From your Examination Score Report screen, you can review the exam you just completed by clicking the View Items button. Navigate through the items, viewing the questions, your answers, the correct answers, and the explanations for the questions. You can return to your score report by clicking the View Items button.
