The National Board has developed these sample tests to assist in your preparation for the actual NBCE examinations. The questions in these sample tests and the content they cover are representative of the style and quality of actual NBCE examination questions.

To most accurately reflect your mastery of the test content, we recommend that you replicate actual testing conditions. Specifically, we suggest that you work through each sample test as if it were an actual examination: arrange for uninterrupted time and do not use texts or study aids.

Because actual NBCE examinations are timed, we recommend that you allocate the amount of time listed below to complete the sample tests:

  • 40 minutes for each subject in Parts I and II (50 questions per subject)
  • 40 minutes for Physiotherapy (50 questions)
  • 20 minutes for Acupuncture (25 questions)
  • 90 minutes for Part III (75 questions)
  • 40 minutes for SPEC (50 questions)

At the end of each sample test, you will receive a score report with a total percentage correct, and a percentage for each category in the subject. This breakdown may be useful in helping to focus further study. You can print this score report, and it can also be accessed at a later date by logging into the web site.

It is NBCE's policy not to provide answers to the individual questions contained in these sample tests. Candidates will receive feedback by category performance only. The category sub-score provides a better indication of knowledge of the content area than does information on an individual question level.
