Q. What if I already have a degree or certification in a relevant field? A. In that case, you should still be able to pass the theory exam. However, a degree or certification may be required for admission to a university or to certain post-secondary institutions, such as certain colleges and universities.
Q. Why would a university want to test me for theory exams? A. Most universities conduct testing in order to see which students are prepared for a particular course, and how well they understand the concepts and theories that are taught within their courses. Although some courses may use extremely difficult topics, like engineering or the sciences, others may be much simpler to teach, but still require students to have mastered at least some of the most fundamental concepts.
Q. How should I prepare for the theory exam? A. There are several different ways to prepare for the theory exams. You should try to familiarize yourself with the topics covered in the syllabus for your chosen course of study as much as possible, to gain a basic understanding of the material before you even begin to write your exam.
Q. What kinds of questions will I be faced with on the theory exams? A. There are many different types of questions that you will likely be asked on the exams, so make sure that you can memorize all the terms and concepts that you will be reviewing on the exams before you take them.
Q. Where can I take the theory exam and study for it? A. You should be able to take the exam anywhere that you are allowed to take exams, so long as you meet the requirements of the institution that you are taking the exam at.
Q. Is a sample exam from a university or college required to take the practice theory exam? A. No, a sample exam from an accredited school or college is not required to take the practice tests.
Q. Is there a time line for when I am expected to get the answer for each question on the theory exam? A. There is generally a time line given by each testing establishment, although this varies depending upon the type of the test that you are taking. The time line for the practice tests on your ABLEX study guide will generally help you keep track of the time that you are expected to finish the theory exam for the course that you are taking.
Q. How many practice questions should I take each day to prepare for the theory exam? A. You should take as many practice questions as possible, particularly those that test particular concepts that will appear on your ABLEX theory exam. By familiarizing yourself with these concepts and how they apply to the sample test that you will take, you will have a much easier time understanding the concepts that will appear on the actual exam.
Q. Why is a sample test given to prospective students on the ABLEX site? A. Because it is very easy to create a sample exam on the ABLEX site, and many times a prospective student will want to see how they would fare on this theory test before taking the real thing.
Q. Is there a way for me to get practice questions for the theory of probability that I will be taking? A. There are numerous websites that offer practice tests and quizzes on the ABLEX theory exams.
Q. Why is there a time limit on the theory of probability question? A. The time limit is in place so that students understand that a concept is not being taught completely to them in this class. They will have time to think about the concept, but the concept itself cannot be taught in a one-time lesson.
