A study question for a Prometric exam with the American Board of Family Medicine is to identify the body system to which the heart belongs, while a study question for the Internal Revenue System is to recognize deductible contributions and the amount of money someone is able to carry over from year to year. Many practice exams are available online and include a tutorial to help understand the format of Prometric tests and the content specific to a company.
Other study areas for the ABFM exam include knowing how blood pressure values are expressed, recognizing appropriate health recommendations based on a patient's history, identifying radiography images and being familiar with vaccines recommended at different ages. Study areas for the IRS exam include knowing laws about rental deductions, escrow taxes, and taxes for stocks and bonds.
Prometric offers suggestions for preparing to take its exams: study, prepare, know what is allowed, rest and arrive early. Many testing organizations endorse study guides or other reference materials that are offered on the exam; Prometric advises test takers to study any recommended materials early, and bring government-issued identification and scheduling confirmation on the day of the test. Other permitted materials are provided at the testing center.
