Online Practice Assessments to Help You Prepare
Gain confidence and readiness as you prepare for the Continued Professional Certification Assessment (CPCA). CPCA Practice I and II are interactive, online practice assessments including 40 questions each, designed to help you:
- Assess your knowledge of the four core domains* of anesthesia practice and identify any weaknesses that may require additional study.
- Familiarize yourself with question formats that appear on the CPCA including multiple-choice and multi-select questions. There are no hotspot or short answer questions.
- Earn credit while studying and prepping! You can earn a total of four Class A credits when you achieve an 80% passing score in your first three attempts for completing the CPCA Practice I and II (two Class A credits for each). If you do not receive a passing score, you can still self-report the CPCA Practice activity for 1 Class B credit for every 60 minutes you were engaged in the assessment. You have 365 days to access CPCA Practice after purchase. You do not need to complete the practice assessment in one sitting.
- After each version (I or II), you will have access to all 80 questions from each version, along with rationales about the correct answers to help you prepare for the CPCA. So, after taking both CPCA Practice I and II, you will eventually have access to 160 practice questions!
Take a test drive! The Quick20 is a free, 20-question sample assessment with unlimited attempts designed to help you get familiar with the types of questions you can expect on the CPCA.
