Our system consists of 1,000 up-to-date Multiple Choice Questions with explanations (MCQs) in our database of pre-test, review-test, and post-test:

Pre-test: It contains the same percentage of questions from each content area (Total 400 MCQs). Participants can take a pre-test of that module to assess their conceptual understanding of that specific area of the PHRi Exam Content Outline. When the pre-test is completed, an overall correct percentage is provided along with the number and percentage of questions answered correctly. The answers with explanations to individual questions are also provided. Our system allows users to save the results of the pre-test so that they can improve upon their results later.


Review-test: Every review test contains questions with explanations (in total 400 MCQs from Pre-test) which help to understand the concepts of that particular knowledge area for each section of the study workbook. Once you successfully finish reviewing for one section text in the workbook; you naturally get access to the next section. Every new section helps construct on the earlier concepts presented. 


Post-testOnce you complete all the knowledge areas, you will be able to have a full length simulated post test under the same testing conditions as the actual exams with 115 practice questions covered during the 2 hours 45 minutes test. These tests are designed to help you get the feel of the final PHRi Exam, with similar format and question types: Multiple choice with only one correct answer, Multiple choice with two or more correct answers, Fill in the blank (numeral, word, or phrase), Drap and drop, and Scenarios MCQs. Practice till you are near to 80% correct answers in the post-test (Total independent 600 MCQs). This helped you in understanding areas where you have improved since the last test as well as highlight topics for which you needed more revision.
