Using PrepLogic Practice Exams, Preview Edition

[ LiB ]  

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 Exams, 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 a detailed explanation of why the given answers are right or wrong. This feature 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 see a series of questions but no answer choices. Instead, you get 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:

  • Enable Show Answer Button Activates the Show Answer button allowing you to view the correct answers and full explanations for each question during the exam. When it is not enabled, you must wait until after your exam has been graded to view the correct answers and explanation.

  • Enable Item Review Button Activates the Item Review button, allowing you to view your answer choices and marked questions and to facilitate navigation between questions.

  • Randomize Choices Randomize answer choices from one exam session to the next . Makes memorizing question choices more difficult, therefore keeping questions fresh and challenging longer.

To begin studying in Practice Test mode, click the Practice Test radio button from the main exam customization screen. This step enables the options detailed in the preceding list.

To your left, you see 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. Custom Tests allow you to configure the time limit and the number of questions in your exam.

The Preview Edition included with this book includes a single preconfigured Practice Test. Get the compete set of challenging PrepLogic Practice Tests at and make certain that you're ready for the big exam.

Click the Begin Exam button to begin your exam.

Starting a Flash Review Mode Session

Flash Review mode provides you with an easy way to reinforce topics covered in the practice questions. To begin studying in Flash Review mode, click the Flash Review radio button from the main exam customization screen. Select either the preconfigured Practice Test or create your own Custom Test.

Click the Begin Exam button to begin your Flash Review of the exam questions.

Standard PrepLogic Practice Exams, Preview Edition Options

The following list describes the function of each of the buttons you see. Depending on the options, some of the buttons will be grayed out and inaccessible or missing completely. Buttons that are appropriate are active. The buttons are as follows :

  • Exhibit This button is visible if an exhibit is provided to support the question. An exhibit is an image that provides supplemental information necessary to answer the question.

  • Item Review This button leaves the question window and opens the Item Review screen. From this screen, you see all questions, your answers, and your marked items. You also see correct answers listed here when appropriate.

  • Show Answer This option displays the correct answer with an explanation of why it is correct. If you select this option, the current question is not scored.

  • Grade Exam When you finish your exam, click to end your exam and view your detailed score report. If you have unanswered or marked items remaining, you are asked whether you want to continue taking your exam or view your exam report.

Time Remaining

If the test is timed, the time remaining appears on 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 are asked whether you want to continue taking the test or end your exam.

Your Examination Score Report

The Examination Score Report screen appears when the Practice Test mode endsas 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 that you possess the knowledge to pass the actual vendor exam.

Review Your Exam

From Your Score Report screen, you can review the exam that you just finished by clicking on the View Items button. Navigate through the items, viewing the questions, your answers, the correct answers, and the explanations for those questions. You can return to your score report by clicking the View Items button.
