Online simulation

Available to candidates registered for the November 23, 2017 test

An interactive experience available in English and Italian.  Each practice test, once begun, cannot be paused, repeated or printed; for this reason you should begin the practice test only when you have 90 uninterrupted minutes in which to take it.

After each practice test, a final report will be provided, with the results for each cognitive area, a chart of the candidate’s answers, and the answer key with the correct answers.

The test report can be saved and printed, and allows candidates to do extra preparation in the areas where they performed most poorly.
