The Exam Readiness Check is available only to candidates who are currently registered for an upcoming computer-based exam. You will be sent an authenticated link to access the Exam Readiness Check when you register for an exam. It can also be accessed on the Cognitive Expertise page in myABR.

We highly recommend that you complete the Exam Readiness Check in the location and with the computer you plan to use on exam day. Should it be necessary to change your location or computer before exam day, it is highly recommended that you repeat the Exam Readiness Check.

The Exam Readiness Check provides a unique opportunity for candidates to familiarize themselves with the exam interface and navigation before their exam day. Completing the Exam Readiness Check is important to fully understand the functionality of the exam interface including case navigation, flagging questions, using the image manipulation tools, starting/ending a break, and question content blocking.

When the Exam Readiness Check is launched, a quick technical verification is initiated to ensure the microphone, camera, internet connection, and computer software are optimized for the exam. You may need to download an updated version of Google Chrome or the Proctorio® extension for Google Chrome to complete the technical verification.

After you complete the Exam Readiness Check, you will gain access to a set of Sample Questions. The purpose of these questions is not to test your knowledge of possible exam content, but rather to allow you to become familiar with the variety of possible question types.
